Lancashire Free Loft Insulation Grant Scheme
Free Loft Insulation is available under a local council backed scheme in the Lancashire area.
You could get a grant and get your loft insulated to the latest standards or your existing insulation “topped up” under the latest government schemes available throughout this area. It is currently recommended that you have at least 270mm of insulation in your loft.
Grants can cover 100% of the cost for most properties, contact us for details and information on how to proceed and get your home insulation updated and installed by a registered and approved installer authorised to carry out work under the scheme.

About the insulation grant schemes in Lancashire
The schemes are a central government initiative and primarily designed to help keep us warm and to reduce carbon emissions that are produced when we heat our homes.
The government has committed to reducing the UK total carbon emissions under ambitious targets and is looking to be one of the first countries in the world to achieve nett zero carbon emissions.
Reducing pollution and carbon emissions has had cross-party political support for many years with subsequent governments increasing the overall commitment to current and new schemes and continue to increase the funding levels available. A current budget of over £1 Billion pounds a year is available.
