Living in a cold home can harm your health. It can make a range of health conditions worse, such as breathing and heart problems, and asthma in children. It can also impact on your mental wellbeing.
Green Homes Grant funded home improvements
The Warm Home Check service is able to offer eligible households a range of fully funded home insulation or low carbon heating improvements to increase the energy efficiency of your home – helping you to keep warm and well, whilst saving money.
Our COVID-secure Warm Home Check visit will help to find out the improvements that would be best for you and your home. A more detailed home survey may then be arranged to help you review all your options and understand the recommended improvements.
All improvement works are quality assured and carried out by vetted contractors registered with Trustmark or the Microgeneration Certification Scheme.
Find out if you’re eligible for a Warm Home Check. In addition, to qualify for these government funded home insulation or low carbon heating improvements, your property must have low energy efficiency – an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of E, F or G. If you don’t know the energy efficiency of your home, then the Warm Home Check visit may be able to help.
