Loft Insulation acts as a blanket by trapping heat in your home, cutting the amount that escapes your property by 25% and will lead to savings of up to £175 per year. Cavity Wall Insulation can prevent around a third of heat that escapes from your property, resulting in savings of up to £135 per year.

40% to 70% Insulation Grants

All UK homeowners and private tenants, that do not qualify for a 100% Free Insulation Grant, are still entitled to a Government-backed Grant for Home Insulation which will cover between 40% and 70% of the cost. This is known as ‘Able to Pay’ funding.

Householders will have to pay a small contribution towards the cost. This is typically recovered within two years from heating bill savings. This applies to Grants for both Cavity Wall Insulation and Loft Insulation.


40% to 70% Insulation Grants:
  • All other private households qualify for a 40% to 70% Grant.
  • Regardless of income or circumstances.
  • Even if working full or part-time!
  • You pay only £99-£199 for each Insulation type.

The table below shows some typical examples of the amount to pay after the 40-70% Grant has been applied:
