What is the Green Homes Grant?

The Green Home’s Grant is the latest government initiative to help homeowners save money and get the most out of their property with energy efficient improvements at a reduced cost to them.

The scheme aims to support homeowners and the construction industry in the UK by offering vouchers of up to £5,000 that will pay, in part, for the cost of the project. Lower-income households can claim vouchers up to a maximum of £10,000 that will cover 100% of the cost.

However, these vouchers apply only to a select few products and services, and while they will improve the energy efficiency of your property, it may not be in the way you expect.

What is Included in the Green Homes Grant?

In order to try and clarify the energy efficient services covered in the Green Homes Grant scheme, the government’s guidelines have divided these into primary and secondary categories.

These measures have been prioritised to try and maximise the energy efficiency of your home in the most effective way possible.

But this means homeowners are limited with their options and unable to specify what they would prefer.

The primary home improvements include:

  • Insulation: Solid wall, under-floor, flat roof, room in roof or cavity wall insulation
  • Low Carbon Heat: Air source heat pump, ground source heat pump or solar thermal

After these, the guidelines outline a series of secondary measures, such as:

  • Draught-proofing
  • Windows and Doors: Double or triple glazing (when replacing single glazing), energy efficient doors (replacing doors installed before 2002) or secondary glazing (in addition to single glazing)
  • Heating Controls/Insulation: Hot water tanks, appliance tank thermostats or heating controls

The primary measures must be prioritised before you as a homeowner can request funding for secondary measures.

Where primary home improvements are to be installed and there is funding remaining from the vouchers awarded, one or more of these secondary home improvements can be chosen – but no further funding will be available to exceed the initial value of the grant that was first issued.

As such, there’s no reason to delay when planning your next project. The sooner you get in touch with us to start your home improvement plans, the sooner you’ll be able to enjoy a cosier, more comfortable and thermally efficient living space.
