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 2011 can apply. This is defined as the date your electricity meter was installed.
Grant funding can only be issued once per property for each type of works.
Making your home more energy efficient means you are playing your part in tackling climate change!
