Find a Qualified Installer

Once you’ve determined your eligibility, the next step is to find a qualified installer. Not all installers are eligible to provide insulation services under the grant scheme, so it’s important to look for installers who are certified under the government’s scheme. You can look for certified installers in your area through the government’s Local Authority Delivery Scheme. 

Alternatively, you can get in touch with us as we are a qualified installer with a PAS 2030 accreditation meaning we can install energy saving measures under the government grant schemes

You could save up to £590 annually on your energy bills with an insulation grant

Apply for the Grant

The process of applying for loft insulation grants varies depending on your location and the scheme you’re applying for. If you’re applying for the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme, you’ll need to contact your energy supplier to find out how to apply or you can apply through a grant specialist provider such as Warma UK who will guide you through the whole application process . The application process may involve an assessment of your property’s energy efficiency by a qualified surveyor.

Once your application has been approved, we will arrange a date to install the insulation in your loft.

As a PAS 2030 accredited installer we can install your insulation for you using our network of dedicated insulation installers.

Claim the Grant

After the installation is complete, your installer will provide you with the necessary paperwork to claim the grant. You’ll need to submit this paperwork along with proof of payment to receive the grant. The amount of the grant will depend on the scheme you’ve applied for and your eligibility. Make sure to keep all the paperwork and receipts related to the installation and claim process.

Alternatively using a grant provider like ours we will be able to claim the grant on your behalf and make the process much more simpler for you and less time intensive. We may also be able to provide you with other measures such as boiler upgrades, solar panel grants or air source heat pumps.

Many properties without any loft insulation stand to save a great deal if loft insulation is installed. 

Annual savings that could be achieved (figures from the energy savings trust)

Detached house – £445 

Semi-detached – £270

Mid-terrace house – £240 

Similarly, installing loft insulation in a detached bungalow with no previous insulation could save £440 each year. 

To give more insight, these savings are based on the cost of fuel as of January 2024, and for a gas-heated residence insulated with 270mm of loft insulation.

But the benefits of loft insulation don’t end with financial savings. A typical loft installation can also prevent many kilograms of CO2 emissions. For example, a detached property could save up to 1000kg of CO2 emissions annually, while a semi-detached house may save 620kg and mid-terrace houses could reduce 550kg of CO2 emissions.
