What’s on offer and how do I get a boiler grant Wolverhampton?
Some energy suppliers offer free insulation and free boilers to eligible households. Read on to find out if you qualify. You could save up to £150 a year on your energy bills by insulating your loft, and £165 with cavity wall insulation if you live in a semi-detached house. Both can cost hundreds of pounds upfront to install, so it’s worth checking whether you can get free insulation from your energy supplier first.
Grants cover the initial outlay of cost for something you would otherwise spend your money on. On most occasions a grant won’t cover the full price, but this is free money after all and not to be scoffed at. Energy grants are offered by the government and national suppliers, to help subsidise the initial cost of implementing efficiency improvements. In the winter there are also payments available to help with the cost of heating your Wolverhampton property.
Most Wolverhampton homes built before 1935 will have solid brick or solid stone walls. These walls can either be insulated external or internally. External wall insulation is the most common method whereby insulation boards around 100mm thick are attached to the outside walls and then either finished with render, pebble dash or a brick effect finish. Window ledges, soffits and rainwater goods are adjusted to fit the new wider walls and the work is completed in around 1-2 weeks. External wall insulation costs around £10,000 for a normal semi detached house and upwards of £15,000 for a detached house. The heat project can offer grants for solid wall insulation but typically that only cover 10-20% of the works cost so you would need to find several thousand pounds to contribute towards the cost of the works. However, if you are planning to re-render your home anyway or if you wish to modernise and transform the look of your home then you should consider solid wall insulation in Wolverhampton.
