Covid19 Notice

We are still taking enquiries (online and over the telephone), and we are discussing your enquiries with you – that will continue as normal. However, we are only carrying out surveys where it is deemed safe to do so. If it is not deemed safe to carryout a survey we are keeping those enquiries in chronological order, and will contact them in that order when it is safe to do so. We will come through this quicker and with fewer deaths if EVERYONE behaves responsibly. Stay Safe !

You might qualify for a Free Central Heating System.

The Government Home Insulation Grant Scheme changed in September 2018. In some ways it is an improvement over the old scheme, but other aspects have got a whole lot worse.

The Standard Home Insulation Grant that everyone qualified for (even Richard Branson) has been withdrawn.

The Enhanced Home Insulation Grant – which you have to qualify for, has been broadened.

Many people who did not qualify for this grant in the past will now qualify.

A Flexible Grant Scheme was introduced which is not dependent upon benefits.

CAVITY WALL INSULATION

Cavity Wall Insulation is FREE in 99% of the cases for those who qualify for a grant. The quality control aspects have improved massively. 

In some parts of Wales you do not need to be on Government benefits or DWP allowances to qualify.

We would of course be pleased to give a quote for those who do not qualify for a grant. 

Loft Insulation is not free in all cases, and will depend on a number of factors.

We would of course be pleased to give a quote for those who do not qualify for a grant.

Loft Insulation

FREE CENTRAL HEATING SYSTEMS.

If your home is heated by Coal or Electricity you might qualify for a free central heating system, and if you live within 23 metres of a Gas Main, we will connect you to it free of charge.

All of the above measures, including Free Central Heating Systems, are also available in Bridgend, Caerphilly, Cardiff, Merthyr Tydfil, Neath Port Talbot and the Vale of Glamorgan county areas, but receipt of benefits/allowances is needed in order to qualify.

ENERGY PERFORMANCE CERTIFICATES (EPC’s)

 

We carryout domestic EPC’s throughout the CF and NP postcodes at competitive prices. So if you are selling your home or would like to have a home insulation assessment completed, please drop us a line or give us a call on one of the numbers below.

HOME ENERGY EFFICIENCY ASSESSMENTS

Have a Home Energy Efficiency Assessment carried out on your property (including an Energy Performance Certificate), by a qualified Domestic Energy Assessor, Green Deal Advisor and registered CAS surveyor.

Basically, this is an EPC, but with an assessment/ survey of the property’s existing insulation etc.

A Domestic Energy Assessor has to carryout a non-intrusive survey to produce an EPC. They are not allowed to drill a wall to check for cavity wall insulation, or rummage around a loft (in fact many don’t even look in the loft), or crawl into the loft voids around rooms in the roof.

With your permission, in the case of cavity walls, we would drill a 12mm hole in the wall(s) and insert a boroscope with a camera to assess suitability for insulation or existing insulation. A full survey of the loft space would be carried out, together with a survey of any rooms in the roof.

We would also look at the feasibility of renewable technologies.

We produce a report of our findings together with various solutions, and details of any funding that may be available, e.g. the renewable heating incentive which could pay you back over 7 years more than the cost of the installation.

The cost for this is additional insulation assessment is just £25 on top of the EPC fee.

THE GREEN DEAL – AN UPDATE!

 

The Green Deal was actually a finance mechanism, whereby energy efficiency improvements could be made to your home, through a loan. The loan was then repaid, with interest, through your electricity bill.

The idea was that Energy companies, DIY companies and the like, would invest money into the “Green Deal Finance Company”. But this did not happen, and the Coalition Government funded it.

When the Conservatives came to power in May 2015, they said they would not invest any more money into the scheme. So, the Green Deal still existed, but in practice was unable to operate.

The Green Deal Finance Company was purchased in January 2017 by a private consortium. It should be offering Green Deal Loans through the scheme in the near future. We will keep you updated.
