Better Energy Homes is a Government scheme which gives fixed cash grants for insulation and heating system upgrades, helping to make your home more comfortable and cheaper to run. It is available to all owners of homes built before 2006.
In March 2015, higher grant values and bonus payments were introduced and the scheme is now available for previous applicants to get additional works completed.
