How To Get A Grant For Free Cavity Wall Insulation?
Follow the instructions below to check whether you qualify for free cavity wall insulation.
What is Cavity Wall Insulation?
A cavity wall is two layers of brick with a cavity between them. Cavity wall insulation or CWI is a process of inserting insulation into a small space between them. Depending on the type of cavity, different materials can be used for the insulation, such as foam, bead, or mineral wool. But you don’t have to worry about figuring out which one will suit your home. We will send a surveyor to determine whether your property is suitable for cavity insulation and which one will be most appropriate.
Most homes built with a cavity wall between 1924 and 1982 are likely not filled with any cavity wall insulation. With insulation grants, it is possible to get cavity insulation entirely for free at no cost to you!

Why Should I Apply For Free Cavity Wall Insulation?

There is minimal disruption to you, as the process only takes up to a few hours. Through a few drilled holes in your wall, your home can maintain all the heat generated for longer. The free home insulation grants on offer guarantee high quality work without cutting any corners on installing cavity wall insulation.
UK Energy Support guarantees high-quality services. We operate across the UK to provide energy support services and installation of cavity wall and free loft insulation, along with free electric storage heaters to anyone who qualifies under the ECO scheme (such as receiving a benefit like universal credit, child benefit or disability living allowance).
Getting cavity wall insulation reduces your heating bills, giving you more money to spend on yourself and your family. If you are a private landlord, you will also benefit from this scheme due to the lack of required maintenance and the fast turn around on the initial cost.
Reduce carbon footprint
Your carbon footprint will be reduced, meaning you are playing a part in saving our planet. The Energy Saving Trust believes that one third of heat lost in houses can be avoided by installing cavity wall insulation. Insulation is often more beneficial than getting a new boiler which may not be as environmentally friendly.
