Can I get these free energy saving improvements?

To get these improvements your home should have:

an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rated Band E, F or G (D rated can also be considered).

And

You are likely to be an eligible household if you are on a low income and one of the following applies:

  • If your annual household income is under £30,000, or under £20,000 after rent or mortgage costs,
  • Your household is on means-tested benefits.
  • An allowance will also be made for the number of children in your household, or if you have recently lost income.

What energy saving improvements can I get for my home?

These are the energy and cost-saving upgrades that you may be able to receive in your house:

  • Insulation & ventilation upgrades (to keep your home comfortable in both the winter and summer and help cut your energy bills)
  • An upgrade to a low carbon heating system (to cut your carbon emissions so not gas or oil boilers)
  • Heating Controls (that help save you money because you only use the heat when you need it)
  • Energy Efficient Hot Water Solution (keeping your water warm for longer and saving you money)
  • Solar Thermals panels (to heat your hot water)
  • Solar PV panels (to generate free electricity)
  • Energy Efficiency lighting (cheaper to run)

The upgrades offered will be based on the results of a free survey.

If you have a flat or maisonette not all these improvements can be done but if you would like, we can come and survey your home and talk with you about finding the best solution for your home.

Who is carrying out the work?
