Under the Green Homes Grant Scheme, homeowners and landlords in England are from the 1st October 2020 able to apply for vouchers to cover the cost of certain home improvements. This is a cash gift, it is not a loan. The voucher will pay for home improvements that will make your home more energy efficient and more comfortable to live in. The application is easy and we can do it for you as part of the service.
There are two voucher types:-
If you are a tenant you can still apply for a voucher but will need your landlords consent.

Loft Insulation is a simple process that saves a lot of heat loss reducing your energy bills considerably. Working in the roof space you won't even know our energy professionals are there.
Underfloor insulation is a slightly more involved process as we will have to take up floorboards but it really makes ground floor rooms cosy and we will replace your carpets or provide new ones with our no hassle guarantee.
Wall Insulation comes in two forms Cavity Wall Insulation and Solid Wall Insulation. Your Switched-On Energy Professional will be able to advise if either are suitable. Protecting your walls as well as your roof and floors will protect you from the weather and high energy bills.
Cold spots around your doors and windows and ventilation bricks etc are costing you money. Our accredited professionals can eliminate these draughts and lower your heating bills.
Replacing your single glazing with double glazing, triple glazing or adding secondary glazing will dramatically improve the energy efficiency of your home.
Replacement of old and draughty doors and door frames with modern insulated doors and locks providing security and comfort to your home.

100% voucher scheme

66% Voucher Scheme

On the 7th July 2020 Rishi Sunak, Chancellor of the Exchequer, unveiled the Governments Green Home Grant Scheme, a £3,000,000,000.00 fund for home owners and landlords to pay for Energy Saving Improvements to properties in England such as loft insulation installs, ground source heat pumps, double glazing and draught exclusion. Everyone is eligible as long as:
· Your home is in England,
· You are (or have the permission of) the property owner,
· You have not received a grant already.
If a member of your household is on benefits you can apply for a voucher for 100% of the cost of the improvements, if not you get a voucher for two-thirds (66%) of the cost of the works - it's a no-brainer. Switched-On Energy Professionals are an accredited adviser and installer under the scheme and can help you make the most of this incredible time limited offer. This is a grant, its not a loan, it is your opportunity to make your home more energy efficient and cheaper to heat, more comfortable to live in and do your bit for the environment. Don’t miss out - the scheme is due to end in spring 2022.
