Vouchers are now available through the Green Homes Grant scheme to help towards the cost, or to meet the full cost of installing home energy improvements, such as insulation and low carbon technologies such as heat pumps.
Homeowners and landlords can obtain financial help (up to £5,000) towards making certain home energy improvements in their home. The voucher will cover up to two thirds of the cost of the work. In some cases the voucher can cover the full cost (up to £10,000) if a homeowner is in receipt of a qualifying benefit.
The work must be carried out by a certified installer(s). The installer must be Trustmark registered, and also registered to work on the Green Homes Grant scheme. Companies who install low carbon technologies must also meet MCS standards.
You can find a certified installer for a homeowner or landlord on the Simple Energy Advice website and also more information about all types of home energy improvements which can be funded, as well as applying for vouchers.
