ECO Grants Eligibility Form

eco grant form

CLICK ABOVE TO APPLY

Energy Company Obligation (ECO)  Grants are a vital part of  the Government’s home insulation scheme known as the Green Deal.

As from January 28th 2013 any home-owner or tenant has the opportunity to apply for a free ECO grant towards having solid wall insulation fitted to their home.

The first step is to contact a Green Deal Advisor who is licensed to carry out a detailed energy assessment of your home.

The software used in the Assessment produces a recommendations report (known as the Green Deal Report) which highlights any Grants or Pay As You Save Green loans that you qualify for.

Do You Qualify For A Free ECO Grant?

To save you time and money prior to having an assessment we have devised a pre-application checklist to enable us to assess whether or not you will qualify for the grant subsidy and also if you have the option of funding the balance through a Pay As You Save Loan with no upfront costs at all.

eco applicationSimply click on the picture opposite to be taken to the checklist,fill it in and either print it off and post it back or email it back to us.

We will then get back to you with confirmation of your eligibility and once the Scheme starts in January we can arrange a formal Assessment free of charge.

At this point the amount of grant funding will also be known so the work can be arranged.

Official Launch of Green Deal

Official Launch of Green Deal

The Dep’t of Energy & Climate Change (DECC) has just announced that 28th January 2013 will be the official start of the energy saving Green Deal Loans & Grants. From this date Green Deal Providers will be able to offer home-owners and private tenants the first Green Loans to fund essential insulation and heating improvements

green deal surveyThe first step is to book a  Home Energy Assessment from a Green Deal Approved Advisor such as THINC Wethertex. For the time being there is a £100 cash back offer we are offering the survey free  on a first come first served basis.

The gateway to the Green Deal schemes is via a Green Deal Assessment survey, carried out by an approved Green Deal Advisor. The home survey inspects all the structural and behavourial aspects of a home and its occupants in relation to the quality and efficiency of the existing insulation and heating.

A report is produced that will show you exactly what insulation or heating measures your home would benefit from and whether you qualify for financial assistance for some or all of the cost.

Call Back 0115 88 3552 or EMAIL GREEN DEAL SURVEY

Who Qualifies

This is a complex area and qualification criteria varies dependent upon house type,the home improvement recommended and in some cases the level of income or benefits the applicant is in receipt of. Hence the need for a survey visit and report as the first step.

We can tell you,however,that anyone living in a solid wall home will qualify for external wall insulation and loft insulation regardless of income or benefits.

What Home Improvements are Included

green deal homeThere is a long list of measures contained within the survey software that may be eligible for full or partial funding.

Each home survey report will vary but we can tell you that the primary areas for financial assistance are for insulating older homes with solid walls and for upgrading single or old double glazing, loft insulation and inefficient heating systems with old style non-condensing boilers.

How Much Do I Get

The Green Deal scheme will comprise two financial elements. The first is a free grant contribution from the Energy Suppliers and the size of this depends upon the type of home improvement being installed and the house style and in some cases on income levels.

green grantsThe second element is a low interest loan tied to your electric meter which funds the shortfall – if any exists – between the free grant and the full cost of the measure being installed.

The two elements do not have to both be taken up ie you can take the grant without having to take the loan if you wish.

The only way to find out just what you are entitled to is to arrange a free Home Energy Assessment and see what the independent report recommends.

Cold Walls Cost Money

warmer wallsA solid wall with no insulation loses around 80% more heat than an insulated wall.

By retro- fitting an external Wethertex wall insulation system the typical home-owner can save around £400 off their yearly heating bill.

The walls are wrapped in a thermal blanket which is then rendered as shown opposite. Not only does the house get a make-over but it also rises in value due to the lower running costs.

Who Qualifies For a Grant

The great news is that every home-owner or tenant living in a solid wall home is eligible is eligible for the insulation grants and VAT subsidy.

There is no means testing involved and in some cases other energy saving home improvements such as double glazing or loft insulation may also be made available.

Insulating Solid Walls & The Green Deal

insulating green deal loans schemeAll owners of solid wall properties will qualify for some financial assistance under the finalised terms of the Government’s Green Deal according to the final draft version of the scheme.

After 2 years of waiting the scheme will finally launch in October 2012 with the first energy saving improvements being fitted to homes from January 2013.

As predicted the main focus will be on insulating all exterior parts of the home with the secondary emphasis being on efficient heating systems. In some cases double glazing and loft insulation are also included.

CALL 0500 300 407 or CLICK HERE to REGISTER FOR GRANTS ADVICE & FREE QUOTES

How The Green Deal Works

The whole process starts when a licensed Green Deal Advisor- such as Wethertex UK- carries out an energy efficiency survey of the house and then produces a report containing recommendations to cut bills and save energy.

authorised green deal installerThe home-owner then uses the report to obtain quotes for any work they want doing from an authorised Green Deal Installer.

Once they know the costs, they approach a Green Deal Provider to see how much of  the cost is covered by a free grant and how much they will have to finance themselves either through their own funds or by using a Green Loan from one of the Providers.

If they use a Green Loan the repayments are added to the electricity bill and are collected by the Electricity Company and sent to the Green Loan Provider.

Customer Protection Guaranteed

The Government has introduced the “Golden Rule” to protect the home-owner and this states:

The costs of any Green Deal recommendation shall not exceed the expected reduction in energy bills over the term of the Green Deal.

In other words the home-owner will not be financially disadvantaged by upgrading their home as the bill savings should always exceed the cost of the work over the period of time the Green Deal was taken out over.

External Cavity Wall Insulation

wind driven rain areasIn certain areas of the UK it is best advice to insulate a cavity wall from the outside using an exterior insulated render system as opposed to in-filling the cavity.

The map opposite represents the official British Standard Wind Driven Rain Index with the darkest blue sections showing areas in which homes should not be cavity insulated due to wind-driven rain causing damp.

The areas coloured yellow and the lightest blue are suitable for cavity insulation and those coloured purple and deep blue are deemed unsuitable.

The medium blue areas such as Cornwall,Devon and Dorset signify homes that can be safely cavity insulated but only if they are sheltered from driving rain.

CALL 0500 300 407 or CLICK HERE TO EMAIL ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT EXTERNAL CAVITY WALL INSULATION

 What Are The Risks ?

Originally cavity walls were used in areas at risk of wind driven rain to prevent water penetrating through to the inside by creating an air gap between two walls.

In seeking to cut heat loss and lower heating bills you should not in-fill these cavities as it creates a bridge for water to pass across to the inside and cause damp patches.

Advice, Quotes & Grants

If your home is in one of the risk areas and you would like to find out more information on externally insulating these walls, get in touch. We offer sound advice,free no- obligation quotes and in some instances can even get you a grant to help towards the costs.

Hard To Treat Cavity Walls

Hard To Treat Cavity Walls

Whilst cavity wall insulation is great for cutting heat loss and reducing energy bills it is not automatically recommended for every house with a cavity wall.

With certain construction methods filling the cavity can cause damp,condensation and possible long term structural damage. To help avoid these problems the Government has issued advice to owners of certain property types as outlined below.

The Department for Energy & Climate Change ( DECC) consider the following types of  walls to be unsuitable for cavity insulation :

.
Narrow Cavity—Masonry cavities that are less than 50 mm wide,typically 1930′s homes

Concrete Construction—Prefabricated concrete walls with cavities of whatever width.

Metal Frame Construction- Steel frame systems with any size  cavity.

Random Stone — Uneven cavities formed in walls constructed of natural stone outer leaf and block/brick inner leaf.

Timber Frame – Uninsulated studded cavity (also those with a masonry cavity, which must not be filled).

Excess Height -  Generally not recommended if more than four storeys tall.

Exposed Location -  Homes which are Elevated, Western Coastal or Open to severe wind driven rain.

Green Deal Advisor Grants

green house loansThe imminent launch of the Government’s Green Deal Scheme this Autumn is built around an initial home energy assessment and survey.

This detailed survey kick-starts the whole process and is seen as being crucial to the success of the scheme.

The home inspection and survey can only be carried out by a fully trained and authorised Green Deal Advisor.

The idea being that no loans or grants from the Green Deal Scheme for insulation work can be accessed until this survey report has been compiled.

 Freephone 0500 300 407 or click  to Pre-Register For A Free Green Deal Advisor Survey

Insulating Pre-Fabricated Homes

airey prefabHistorically, Pre-fab concrete or

non-traditional housing

was considered “hard to treat” when it came to trying to conserve energy and cut heat loss through the walls.

The great news is that with a Wethertex Insulated Render System it is now possible to

retro-fit

external wall insulation to virtually any pre-fabricated dwelling. This upgrade in thermal efficiency is equal to that of a new house!

 

Instead of having a new brick outer skin built to create an insulated cavity Wethertex can thermally clad and render the exterior walls of your home for a fraction of the cost.

Freephone 0500 300 407 or click Pre-Fab Insulation Info & Quotes

Which Concrete Pre -Fabs Can Be Insulated?

There is a suitable system for every type of non-traditional build including the most common styles such as:

 **  Wates  * Dorran  * BISF * Woolaway * Fines **

 **  Wimpey No Fines * Airey * Rema * Tarran **

bisf constructionIf you live in one of the above properties you will know they tend to lose heat very quickly in winter especially when the heating goes off and reports of damp problems are not uncommon. In contrast, on hot summer days they can get very humid and feel extremely uncomfortable especially in south facing rooms.

Our thermal cladding and rendering system will not only keep you warm amd dry in winter but also cool and comfortable during the rare hot spells we have! For your peace of mind we only use accredited materials that are guaranteed and which allow your walls to breathe whilst keeping the cold and wet firmly on the outside of the wall.

Wethertex will be able to give you some initial advice and guidance on likely costs prior to arranging a free home survey quote if you like what you hear and want to get a definitive cost.

External Wall Insulation in Birmingham

External Wall Insulation in Birmingham

Wethertex UK has been fitting exterior wall insulation systems and renders since 1975 and cover all areas of Birmingham and the West Midlands from Sutton Coldfield to Dudley. There are over half a million solid wall properties across Birmingham and the surrounding areas which can be thermally improved to benefit from a reduction in heat loss and heating bills.

Before & After Exterior Insulation

heat loss semiThe 1930′s solid wall semi opposite is a typical example of a thermally inefficient property that can benefit from energy saving external wall insulation fitted by Wethertex.

The pebble dash is blown and needs replacing and so this is a great opportunity to install thermal insulation boards whilst re-rendering.

The small extra cost involved makes exterior insulation a no-brainer.

As the photo below shows the tired looking semi has now been transformed into an attractive and maintenance free home.

dry warm wallsMore importantly though the insulated walls will save the owners around £450 p.a on heating bills and any condensation damp or black mould will be destroyed forever.

With Solid Wall Insulation Grants available to help with the costs and a 15% Government subsidy there really has never been a better time to arrange a free no obligation quote or talk to one of our advisors for more information.
