Internal Wall Insulation

A Brief Overview

If your home has solid external walls, you must ensure that they are well insulated. This can be accomplished by installing insulation on either the outside or interior of these walls.

How does this Work?

  • Internal wall insulation is a popular choice for making your house more energy-efficient.

  • We will assist you in determining if the installation of internal wall insulation will be of benefit for your home.

  • A staggering amount of heat is lost via poorly insulated walls. In fact, it may be up to 35%.

  • Installing a thermal layer inside your house might help you save money on your energy expenses.

  • It reduces the need for heating systems since heat is retained rather than lost.

  • Internal wall insulation, unlike external wall insulation, does not affect the appearance of a building.

  • As a consequence, it's ideal for homeowners who wish to improve their home's energy efficiency without compromising its outside appeal.

  • The work can also be done room by room to reduce interruption.

Your Eligibility for this Grant

  • You must ensure your loft is empty of all belongings otherwise the installation of the insulation will not be able to proceed. If the loft is converted in some way then you may wish to consider FREE Room in Roof insulation instead.

  • The loft must be accessible through a hatch and not be boarded. If currently boarded then it must be only a small area of the loft and you may wish to lift the boarding you have to proceed with the FREE grant.

  • The property should be located in England, Scotland or Wales and be heated by a gas, oil, LPG, electric boiler or electric storage heaters (ESH).

  • You must be the Homeowner, Landlord or a Private Tenant. Private Tenants must have their Landlord permission. Landlords must have an eligible ECO3 Tenant living in the property that requires insulation.

  • Also, Housing Associations can claim insulation grants if their properties are heated by any type of electric heaters and they have eligible ECO3 Tenants.

  • If your loft’s current insulation is 100mm (below joist level) then you can have it topped up to 270-400mm.

  • If you have ‘downlights’ in the ceiling under the loft then you may be required to buy £5 safety covers for each of them.
