Qualify For an Insulation Grant?

Free Insulation Grants for UK Pensioners

Heating your home all year round, especially through the long winter months, can be very costly, even more so if you’re losing heat through lack of home insulation. For many pensioners, heating costs are a real worry, especially if you are on a limited income.

Here at Free Insulation Grants, we are home insulation for pensioners across the UK. These government-funded  grants for pensioners are controlled by the ‘Big Six’ energy suppliers; Scottish Power, British Gas, EON, EDF, SSE and nPower. Over the past few years, we have supplied thousands of homes across the UK with insulation.

How Do I access Insulation Grants for Pensioners?

If you or anyone else in your household receives Pension Credits, or any other benefits from the UK government, then it’s highly likely that you’ll be eligible for our insulation grant scheme. Alongside Pension Credits, the other income-related benefits include:

  • Child Tax Credit

  • Income related Employment Support Allowance

  • Income based Job Seekers Allowance

  • Income Support

  • Pension Guaranteed Credit (excludes Savings Credit)

  • Working Tax Credit

  • Universal Credit

  • Disability Living Allowance

  • Personal Independence Payment

  • Attendance Allowance

  • Carer’s Allowance

  • Sever Disablement Allowance

  • Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefits

  • Ministry of Justice Benefits (administered by Veterans UK)

  • War Pensions Mobility Supplement

  • Constant Attendance Allowance

  • Armed Forces Independence Payment

  • Child Benefit

If you receive one of the qualifying benefits and own your own home, or are a tenant living in private rented accommodation, then chances are you’re entitled to a free grant for insulation through our government-backed scheme. To confirm this, simply visit our site homepage and enter your postcode. You’ll be directed through a few brief questions about your current circumstances and the condition of your home in terms of insulation.

What Happens Once I’ve Applied?

It only takes 60 seconds to find out whether you qualify for the scheme. Once this has been determined, we’ll handle the rest of the process for you. This means that we’ll apply for the government funding application on your behalf before our skilled team of experts visit your home to instal insulation.

It goes without saying that our team will clean up any mess as they install your insulation. As well as providing insulation for pensioners, we’re also committed to providing qualifying applicants with aftercare services completely free of charge following the installation of their insulation.

Useful Information

Adding home insulation will bring huge savings by reducing the amount of heat that escapes, and therefore minimising the time that you need to have your heating on.

Estimates are that having insulation could cut your energy bills by as much as £300 per year, depending on your home and the type of insulation installed. Cavity wall insulation, for example, can save up to 15% on heating costs.

Under the government insulation scheme, it is the leading energy companies who are under the obligation to provide the grants for home insulation to those who qualify.

Our fees for installation and aftercare are sourced through the scheme and its grants, so you won’t have to pay out to cover our costs during the process.

This allows you to get your insulation at a fraction of the cost.

Funding is focused exclusively on people with lower incomes who are considered to be vulnerable or living in ‘fuel poverty’, meaning they are likely to struggle to heat their home.

It’s quite difficult to work out if you might be eligible for funding for insulation as it depends on several criteria. However, if you receive the Warm Home Discount, or certain types of benefits, you’re likely to be eligible.

The best way to check your eligibility is to make an enquiry to us and we’ll help you find out.

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO3) is a government energy efficiency scheme in Great Britain designed to tackle fuel poverty and help reduce carbon emissions.

The scheme runs until 31 March 2022 and is different from previous schemes it replaced, in that there is no longer any availability for any homeowners/tenants not in receipt of a qualifying benefit.

What a difference!

Without the insulation grant I received, I wouldn't have been able to have my home insulated before winter arrived. Already, I'm seeing a big difference in my bills. It couldn't have worked out better.
