Cavity Wall Insulation and Loft Insulation – awaiting ECO4 announcement

Around a 40% of household heat is lost through walls, a further 25% is lost through an uninsulated loft. Insulating your home is still the most effective and cost effective way of keeping your heat in, and your heating bill down. Insulation not only keeps your warm and more comfortable in winter, it provides an extra barrier in the summer that will help to keep you cooler too

You could save up to £400 a year on your heating bills should your walls and loft be fully insulated!

Funding for homeowners, private landlords and private tenants:

  • We are waiting on the release of ECO4 – a Government funding stream that is being set up to fund the install of home insulation measures to eligible households.
  • We have been informed that ECO4 should be live Autumn 2022.

Solid Wall Insulation

If your home was built before the 1930s (or is made of concrete breeze blocks) the walls are unlikely to be suitable for cavity wall insulation.  Find out more about solid wall insulation
