There may be grants and discounts available to help you pay for the works. These can vary due to factors such as where you live, what type of property you live in and what your financial circumstances are.

Energy Company Obligation (ECO) funding:

This is a national grant scheme that channels funds from the big energy companies to help households pay for energy saving improvements.  Through the Energy at Home scheme we are currently able to offer the following ECO grants to home owners, and private tenants and landlords:

 

Measures available

Loft insulation

Loft insulation is a simple way of improving the thermal efficiency of your home. You may already have some insulation, but could benefit from a top-up to bring it up to current standards. 

Room-in-roof insulation

If your loft conversion was completed before 1982 then it is unlikely to be have been insulated. Room-in-roof insulation introduces a layer of insulation over the internal walls and ceiling of the room. 

Cavity wall insulation

Insulating a cavity wall is a simple and effective way to reduce your heating bills. Holes are drilled into the wall and insulating material (either mineral wool fibre or polystyrene bead) is blown into the cavity. 

Solid wall insulation

Solid wall insulation may be suitable for a variety of wall types such as brick, stone, steel-framed and concrete construction. The insulation can be applied to the internal or external surface of the wall.  

Gas / Oil / LPG boilers and heating systems

Having an efficient boiler can make a big difference to your energy bills. If your boiler is more than 10 years old, then it’s worth investigating how much a new energy efficient boiler could save you.

Electric storage heaters

Modern electric storage heaters are much more efficient and have better controls and features, so upgrading your heaters can make a big difference to your energy bills.

Renewable energy technologies

Some renewable energy technologies such as solar electric (Photovoltaic - PV) or solar hot water panels, and air source heat pumps are available through the Energy at Home Scheme.

£1000 grant*

Room-in-roof Insulation

If your loft conversion was completed before 1982 then it is unlikely to be have been insulated. Room-in-roof insulation goes in the space between the roof, and the walls and ceiling of the room.

 

Part grant funded*

Cavity wall insulation - Fibre

Insulating a cavity wall is a simple and effective way to reduce your heating bills. Holes are drilled into the wall and insulating mineral wool fibre is blown into the cavity.

 

Free*

Cavity wall insulation - Bead

An alternative cavity wall insulation material is polystyrene beads. They are more effective at keeping the heat in than fibre insulation, and do not absorb moisture.

Part grant funded*

Loft insulation

Loft insulation is a simple way of improving the thermal efficiency of your home. You may already have some insulation, but require a top-up to bring it up to current standards.

* Subject to survey, suitability, and funding availability

To access any of the grants available through the Energy at Home Scheme, you will first need to have a home energy assessment. This costs £25 or may be free if you meet eligibility criteria - contact the Advice Service who can check your eligibility. 

Following the assessment a quote can be prepared for any of the recommended measures you may want installed. You will receive information about how much grant you are eligible for alongside your quote. Any quote that you receive through the Energy at Home Scheme includes a fee  to help pay for the overall coordination of the Scheme. This helps to fund the provision of advice; support for customer care and quality assurance;  and the bidding for and administration of  grants. This fee is necessary to enable Bath & North East Somerset Council to opperate the Scheme in the long term.

Warm Homes Grant

The Warm Homes Grant is jointly funded by National Energy Action (NEA) and Bath & North East Somerset Council. The grant can provide help to improve heating and insulation measures for home owners and renters who are on a low income and have difficulty keeping their homes warm. Applicants will have a home visit to establish eligibility and to help fill in the application form.
