Insulation Grants

Insulation of your house is a fundamental factor to a warmer, more energy-efficient home and could help you save money on your energy bills.

Cavity/solid wall insulation, under- floor insulation and loft insulation are amongst the most effective ways to reduce heat loss from your home. Insulating homes is costly but under the Energy Companies Obligation (ECO) Scheme, you could be eligible for free home insulation the improvements made to your home can add up to savings on your energy bill.

Grants are available for different kinds of insulations under the current government scheme.

We can help you with the following type of insulation:

Firstly Insulation Grants Bradford but Internal wall insulation grants Bradford. Secondly Loft Insulation Grant Bradford and under floor insulation grant Bradford.

Insulation Grants

Internal Wall Insulation

insulation grants Bradford

Homes with solid wall can be insulated either externally or internally.

While both perform with similar heat retention and savings, the cost of carrying out an external wall insulation is higher, and it also comes at the cost of losing the original external character of the building.

The installation also required scaffolding and is weather dependant which in the UK can result in long delays and inconvenience.

Internal Wall Insulation, by comparison, is a more cost and time-effective option. Once the internal wall has been insulated it will give the property a new look.
Insulating the internal walls could make a big impact on annual heating bills. According to the Energy Savings Trust this could save up to £455 on annual heating bills.
Internal Wall Insulation involves the application of insulation board to the interior face of external walls to improve the thermal performance of the building.

If internal wall insulation is what you need, we are here to help. Give us a call and we will give you an advice. If you qualify for the scheme and feasible to carry out an insulation we will arrange for a free, no obligation survey. Our engineer will advise you on the suitability of your home to canny out the work.

(please discuss with our Engineer if you have any issues with the walls in your home such as poor plastering, dump etc, for them to be able to factor them in when deciding best option for your home.)

Under the current ECO scheme, you can qualify for Loft insulation for free if you’re eligible to improve your home’s energy efficiency. Check if you are eligible.

Why should I get my loft insulated?

  • It will reduce heat loss in your home.
  • Insulating you loft will help keeping more heat inside your home and reduce the amount of energy hence reduced energy bill and saving money
  • You will have minimal disruption to your home as It is quick and easy to install.
  • Once installed it is maintenance free

How does loft insulation work?

Installing loft insulation is as simple as unrolling a rug. A mineral fibre material is laid between the joists and then over the joists in your loft or roof. This thick material captures heat normally lost through the roof and stops draughts getting in.
If you already have loft insulation, you could still benefit from a top-up. If your insulation is 100mm or less, you can increase it to the recommended level of 270mm.

Is your home suitable for loft insulation?

Loft insulation is suitable for your home if:
You have not installed it already
You have easy access to your loft space
If you have already insulated your loft and its thinkness is 100mm or less, this can be topped up
There has been no insulation removed from your loft in the last 6 months.

Insulation Grants

Under Floor Insulation

insulation grants Bradford,

Underfloor insulation is another measure through which homeowners can make their home more energy efficient and help reduce energy bill.

Houses with suspended timber ground floors can be insulated by laying mineral wool insulation supported by netting between the floor joints. Cellar or basements underground floors can often be insulated from beneath as this will save having to lift the floorboards.

Homes with solid concrete floors can also benefit from insulation. This needs sheets of rigid insulation to be laid over the top of the concrete and then a layer of chipboard put on top of that.

Newer homes tend to have solid concrete floors, and these can also benefit from insulation. A solid concrete floor will require sheets of rigid insulation to be laid over the top of the concrete and then a layer of chipboard put on top of that. Unless you are a very experienced DIYer this job is best undertaken by a professional as doors, skirting boards and even electrical sockets may need adjusting to compensate for the new increased floor height.

 

Under the current ECO scheme, you can qualify for Under floor Insulation for free if you’re eligible to improve your home’s energy efficiency. Check if you are eligible

Call us to see if you qualify and discuss your under-floor insulation options.

Insulation Grants

Room In Roof

Roofs in uninsulated homes are another major area through which heat gets lost. Many homeowners use their roof space as living space. Room in Roof Insulation is ideal if you use your loft space as a room. You can insulate the slopping surfaces of your roof itself rather than the loft floor. This create a thermal envelope, helping prevent heat escaping through your roof leading to a warmer home and less use of energy and ultimately savings on your bills.

 Room in Roof insulation also falls under the measure which is supported by the ECO scheme. If you qualify you can you have Room in Roof insulation for free.  Check if you are eligible
