A simple way to access room in roof insulation grants

Whether you’re a homeowner or landlord, you’ll know that insulation can be more than worth it when it comes to keeping your loft conversion comfortable and cosy – plus saving energy by avoiding heat loss through your roof.

But if you’re not experienced with government grant schemes, it can be hard to know where to start looking for room in roof insulation grants. How can you know whether you’re eligible or not? How do you apply? And once you’re ready for the insulation to be installed, how can you be sure you’ve got the right contractors?

Zing Energy takes care of all these issues and more. With thousands of happy customers helped, including housing associations, local authorities and partnering with various energy suppliers, we know the ins and outs of applying for energy-saving grant schemes. Plus, we take care of the installation too, making the whole process seamless.

What room in roof insulation grants are available?

We work with three different government grant schemes, all of which can help with room in roof insulation:

  • ECO4, which is the fourth iteration of the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme
  • The Home Upgrade Grant scheme
  • Local Authority Flex, which extends the ECO4 scheme

These schemes offer funding for a variety of energy efficiency home improvements, helping to enhance your living spaces.

Am I eligible for a room in roof insulation grant?

Each scheme involves a different set of criteria for eligibility. Take a look at the details below or alternatively just start with our free application, and we’ll figure out your eligibility for you.

  1. 1

    1. Your property must have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of E, F or G.

  2. 2

    2. At least one of the property’s residents needs to be in the Help to Heat benefits group.

Help to Heat benefits group includes:

  • Income based Jobseekers Allowance (JSA)
  • Income related Employment & Support Allowance (ESA)
  • Income Support (IS)
  • Pension Credit Guarantee Credit (PCGC)
  • Working Tax Credit (WTC)
  • Child Tax Credit (CTC)
  • Universal Credit (UC)
  • Housing Benefit
  • Pension Credit Savings Credit (PCSC)
  • Child Benefit (within income caps)

Home Upgrade Grant

Unlike the ECO4 scheme, the Home Upgrade Grant isn’t connected with benefits received. Instead, the criteria are these:

  • The property can’t be on the mains gas grid
  • The total, gross income of the household in the property must be under £31,000 a year
  • The property’s EPC rating must be between D and G
  • The property must be in a HUG 2 Local authority area (check out eligible local authorities on gov.uk)

Local Authority Flex

The Local Authority Flex scheme lets local authorities extend ECO4 eligibility to people who wouldn’t qualify just based on their benefits. That means each authority’s requirements are different, but they may include:

  • Household income
  • Proportion of energy bills to income
  • Medical conditions of residents in the household

What are EPC requirements?

Whenever a property is rented or sold, the person receiving the property must be given an EPC. The certificate gives an energy efficiency rating for the property, ranging from A, the best rating, to G, the least efficient rating. The certificate also goes into some details about the potential costs of energy and how the property could be made more energy efficient.

If you’d like to know what your property’s energy efficiency rating is, you can find your EPC via a government website.

Is room in roof insulation a smart move for your home?

Does your loft conversion or attic feel the draught in the winter and experience excessive heat in the summer? If so, a room in roof insulation grant can help you eradicate these issues, leaving your home with a preferable temperature all year round.

Benefits of room in roof insulation

  • Create a habitable space: Installing room in roof insulation can help to transform your loft space into a cosy habitable loft room, where this new layer of insulation can help to stabilise the temperature.
  • Increase property value: If you are thinking of selling your property, creating an additional comfortable living space in loft or attic rooms in your home could be appealing to potential buyers, and could help your property stand out from the rest.
  • Increased comfort: Insulation installed properly can have a positive impact on living conditions by keeping the room cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, creating a more comfortable home environment.
  • Sustainable materials: Modern insulation products are now available with environmentally friendly options, such as recycled materials and natural fibres, which may align with your sustainability goals.
  • Energy savings: As heat rises it escapes through uninsulated areas of the property, resulting in significant energy wastage. Although up to 25% of heat is lost this way, if you install room in roof insulation, you can stop this from happening.

Room in Roof Insulation Grant FAQs

Room in roof insulation is ideal for properties with existing attic rooms or living spaces built within the loft space, including those with stud walls. With attic rooms insulated, it is an effective way to improve the energy efficiency of a property by reducing heat loss and maintaining a comfortable temperature. This is achieved by installing rigid insulation boards or insulating material in batts to the walls and the sloping parts of the ceiling, followed by plasterboard which is then plastered over.

When a property is uninsulated, the rising heat will escape via the loft space, resulting in fluctuating temperatures in loft rooms during warm and cold weather. This can be uncomfortable as the heat generated within the home may escape, making it feel either too hot or too cold. Installing insulation acts as an insulating blanket, retaining the heat and preventing it from escaping through the roof, while also protecting the habitable space from external cold.

Zing Energy are specialists in helping householders qualify for energy grants, which often cover the full cost of energy saving measures like room in roof insulation.
