Solid Wall Insulation Grants Northants

External Wall Insulation Grants for Northants
The new government has temporarily suspended the Green Deal grant scheme and will be introducing a new replacement scheme at some near point in the future. We will update the website once the new scheme is announced.

If you own a property in Northants or the surrounding areas and it is of solid wall construction you may be able to claim up to £6000 on an external wall insulation grant from the government or Council.

This is a taxpayer funded scheme that offers free grants to help you upgrade your home’s insulation standards. The money is released periodically and is handed out on a first-come first-served basis until the money has all been allocated.

These external insulation grants are open to residents of Northampton and are not means-tested.  The money is available to every qualifying property. Although the grant will not cover the full costs in a lot of cases it will  pay for a large percentage of the costs. The maximum help is restricted to 67% of costs.

Smarter Homes can help you understand how the scheme works. Our services include free advice and access to the government Green Deal Home Improvement Fund (GDHIF ) for those wanting exterior insulation. We can also arrange for any Energy Performance certificates or Green Deal Assessments for those of you who haven’t already had one of these done on your property.

Types of Property Eligible for Funding
The GDHIF scheme includes external wall insulation grants for Northamptonshire residents.Grants are available to both owner-occupied homes and privately rented properties. So, if you are a private Landlord and rent out a solid wall property then you can also apply for help in getting external insulation installed and thereby help your tenats by cutting their Winter […]

External Insulation for System Built & Pre-fabs

The great news for owners of system built or pre-fab homes is that there are now government grants available for external wall insulation to be fitted using the latest insulated render systems.

As you will know these homes can be very expensive to heat in winter as heat leaks out through the walls. As most system builds are unsuitable for cavity wall insulation the introduction of bespoke external insulation systems and government funding help is a massive opportunity to cut your heating bills.

The Green Deal Home Improvement Fund can now provide financial help to pre-fabs or system built property owners that wishes to have external wall installed using an approved system especially designed for these non-traditional build types.

Which System Builds are Eligible for External Insulation Grants
Basically there is a bespoke insulation system for virtually every non-traditional home. Before any work is agreed or started we get a free assessment of the walls suitability carried out for you by the UK’s leading experts in system-build insulation fixings. This also ensures you get a 25 year insurance guarantee.

Every home-owner who wants to access the government grants will need to have a Green Deal Assessment survey on their property and we can source an Assessor for you if you cannot find one locally.

The following is a detailed list of most of the UK’s sytem build styles which are eligible for grant help for external wall insulation with a coloured render finish:
