Get a free insulation grant with GRS Insulation
Insulating your home is one of the best ways of reducing your monthly bills by retaining heat within the home.
A non-repayable ECO4 grant could help you slash your energy bills for years to come.
What are the benefits of insulating my home?
In a home with poor insulation most of the heat within the home is lost through your roof and walls.
Approximately 25% of energy is lost through an poorly insulated loft and 35% through uninsulated walls.
One of the best ways of retaining the heat within your home is by installing insulation. This can save you significant amounts of money each year and helps reduce your homes environmental impact.
Correctly insulating your home will also mean that your home remains cooler in the summer as well as warmer in the winter.
How much can insulation save me?
A well insulated home will be able to keep much more of the heat in which will help to reduce your bills substantially.
If you live in a typical gas heated, semi-detached house you could save around £395 with cavity wall insulation. A further £355 could be saved by topping up the loft insulation to 300mm.
Installing these measures would also reduce the carbon footprint of your home by around 1,280kg CO2 per year.
Free insulation grants
As the cost of living crisis continues, we believe that insulation should be available for all.
We specialise in installing insulation for free and we are proud to work with a number of the largest utilities to provide non-repayable grants which usually covers the full cost of install.
These grants are made through the ECO4 (Energy Company Obligation) scheme and are non-repayable. ECO4 is a legal obligation on the largest energy companies to the installation of energy reducing products.

Do I qualify for a free insulation grant?
To qualify for a free insulation grant, you (or your tenant if you are a landlord), must be in receipt of one of the benefits listed below:
I’m not receiving one of these benefits, can I be helped?
Up to 50% of energy efficiency measures installed in England, Wales and Scotland can be completed through the ECO4 Flex scheme and is for households whose combined gross income is below £31,000 per year or if you have certain health conditions which would make you vulnerable to the cold.
The ECO4 Flex scheme is administered by Local Authorities who are responsible for rolling it out in your area and they will verify your income or health eligibility. It is rolling out slowly and is expected to be fully live by April 2023.
We will check as part of your application if your area is now open for applications.
I’m a Landlord, can I get any help?
The Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) came in to effect in April 2018 and means that all rented properties must now have a minimum energy efficiency rating of band ‘E’ unless exempted.
However, from 2025, all properties rented on new tenancies must meet a minimum energy efficiency rating of Band ‘C’ and properties with existing tenants must be brought up to this standard by 2028. Failure to do so could result in a fine of up to £30,000.
These changes are in line with the Government’s net zero emissions by 2050 targets and will also apply to properties which are being sold from 2035.
How can we help?
If your tenant is receiving one of the benefits listed above your property will be eligible for a grant to improve your property.
In fact, the ECO4 scheme says that all Band ‘E’ rated properties must reach a minimum Band ‘C’ after installation of energy efficiency measures.
Applying for your grant is as easy as 1, 2, 3…
