Attic insulation

Attic insulation is generally the most cost effective of any energy efficiency upgrade made to a house. Even if you have some attic insulation you should upgrade it to today's standard of 300mm of earthwool, rockwool or equivalent.

Who can apply

All homeowners, including landlords, whose homes were built and occupied before 2006 can apply. Homes built from 2006 onwards should have been constructed to the 2003 Building Regulations and should not need significant upgrades. This is defined as the date your electricity meter was installed.

Making your home more energy efficient means you are playing your part in tackling climate change!
