How to qualify for a free Loft Insulation in St Austell
There are several schemes available in different areas of the country, you or anyone living in the property do not necessarily need to be over a certain age or receiving benefits to qualify.
If someone does get any qualifying benefit it will usually mean automatic qualification, we can let you know and confirm this when you contact us. Qualification can also be based on the existing energy efficiency of your home, if your home is inefficient you could get a higher grant and be offered other improvements to reduce your fuel bills, keep warm and help the environment by reducing carbon emissions that are produced when we heat our homes.
Where you do not qualify for totally free insulation we also offer another option, we carry out a survey to confirm your homes suitability and to discuss your requirements and get “tendered quotations” for you from approved installers. This ensures you get exactly what you want and what is most suitable for you home. This can reduce the cost by over 50% compared to other quotations that clients have received for home insulation improvements where they have obtained quotations directly.
We can do this because of our knowledge of the insulation industry and by streamlining costs’ for the installers and removing associated overheads, we receive no commission and savings are passed directly to you, this can reduce the cost significantly on its own!

Rolled or blanket layed loft insulation is probably the most common type of insulation. It is available in rolls of foil-backed felt, rock, glass or mineral fibre.
It is relatively straightforward to install although special attention should be paid to ventilation, some types use recycled glass which helps the environment, ideally suited for insulating accessible roof spaces.
Blown fibre is usefull and sometimes the better option if you are looking to insulate roof spaces with limited access or restricted roof height, similar performance to rolled fibre.
Cellolose fibre is made from news paper which has been treated to offer excellent fire retardant properties, is is one of the most thermally efficienct products available to insualte your loft with although it will require specialist installation.
Vermiculite is rarely used, this is due to primarily the availability of better or more suitable alternaites, it’s thermal efficiency is also belw other products available.
Question and Answers
Where does the funding come from?
It is a central government scheme, it is administered by ofgem who oversee the entire scheme and report to central government
Will I definately get a grant and be able to my Loft Insulation free?
The grants are subject to terms and conditions like many things, we have to ensure that you qualify and that the improvements that you are looking for follow the scheme directives, we can confirm to you usually within just a few minutes if you are likely to qualify, we will always let you know about the best options available irrespect of whether we can access them directly or need to refer you to a manging agent.
Can I use anyone to install my Loft Insulation?
No, the insulation must be installed by a registered installer who also holds additional qualifications and is registered under the various schemes. You can however choose any of the installers that are registered and choose the product type. Under the schemes you will always have a choice.
Do all the registered installers offer the same insulation and other improvements?
No, this is why it is important that you contact an organisation like ourselves who is not tied or working for any one installer.
The installers can choose which insulation they install as well as the type of jobs they want to do. They also can charge what they want to and may also receive different levels of funding due to there being more that one source of funding for the schemes available.
Does that mean that some installers might do it for free or very nearly free whilst others may make a significant charge?
Yes, we are aware of instances where for certain improvements applicants have been charged a significant client contribution where there are other schemes or installers who may have done it free or very nearly free.
We are also aware of applicants being told they must have a certain type of insulation or one from a specific manufacturer, this is not correct you can have any type of insulation from any manufacturer providing it complies with the scheme requirements and your property is suitale.
Why should I contact you?
We do not work for anyone installer or manufacturer, we can offer a choice and if you have a preference usually ensure that this is offered. We can also offer you access to other schemes or funders that may be able to offer a better offer or install your choice of insulation either free or nearly free. We are also able to obtain “tendered” quotation reflecting your wishes or reqiuirements and receive no commission from the tendered rates received.
Case Study – (Free Boiler Grant Scheme)
We were contacted by a client; they live in a two bedroomed park home and needed a new LPG gas boiler.
They qualified as they received a qualifying benefit and a survey was carried out by an installer who proposed to install the new boiler under the grant scheme.
The client was told that whilst they qualified, they would need to contribute nearly £1000.00 towards the boiler.
We arranged for the client to get another estimate from an alternative installer that we referred them to; they had in the past installed several boilers in the area to an excellent standard.
Our intention was to get a quotation using a boiler with similar specifications to the existing boiler in their home.
They surveyed the property and were able to install the boiler totally free for the client.
The job was carried out which took just 1 day to complete within a week of the survey, the client obviously was very pleased as unfortunately they were not in a position to proceed otherwise.
