I only recently purchased my first home so this deal has only just been made aware to me. We're with Npower so for the sake of argument, I've posted this deal for Npower but check with your current supplier as it seems most energy suppliers offer the same deal available till the end of November/December this year.

Essentially you get free loft and cavity wall insulation for your home. Offer open to vast majority of households so it's worth looking into and applying if you haven't already. You can save up to £175 for loft and £135 for wall insulation per year for free. You really can't go wrong!

Apologies for the re-post. The last attempt was removed by the moderator as "Insulation Grants" is not a reputable company. Hopefully this post will help those blissfully unaware like myself of the free benefits available to home owners!

it's not "free" though - you have to be in receipt of child tax credit or pension credit and be a customer of npower. so it's really not the "vast majority" of households. so i'm sorry, but it's cold from me ..

We qualified and had it done earlier this year, totally free. Downside is of course that if you've accummulated years or stuff in the attic, you're gonna have to clear that out first. Good excuse to have a sort out though and a few car boot sales... (_;)

The T&C's say all free for all npower customers, plus those on benefits.

we're with EDF energy but the terms seem to be siding those on benefits… and not flats (which is what 1st time home owners usually start with in London). maybe time to switch as they also upped bills 10%.

fair point, i didn't see that part in the small print - however - you must either own your home or live in a privately rented accomodation and have the landlords permission. council properties don't qualify.

Your home - you must be resident in mainland Great Britain, you must own your own home or rent from a private landlord (you will not qualify if your house is rented from a social housing provider). If your house is privately rented, you must have your landlord’s permission to carry out the works. You - free home insulation is available to any person within one of the following 3 groups who registers with us by 31 December 2012. Group one - all npower customers. Group two - non-customers who are (i) over the age of 70; or (ii) in receipt of one of the following: Council tax benefit; Housing benefit; Income support; Income based job seekers allowance; Attendance allowance; Disability living allowance; War disablement pension which includes either a mobility supplement or constant attendance allowance; Disablement pension which includes constant attendance allowance; An income related employment and support allowance under the Welfare Reform Act 2007; or (iii) in receipt of Working tax credit where the relevant income is £16,190 or less. Group three - non-customers who are: in receipt of state pension credit or Child tax credit (where income is less than £16,190); or any of the following: (i) income based jobs seekers allowance; or (ii) Income support; or (iii) Income related employment and support allowance (which must include a work-related activity or support component) and in each case ALSO you either (a) have parental responsibility for a child under the age of five who normally lives with you; or (b) are in receipt of one of the following: 1. child tax credit (which includes a disability or severe disability element); 2. a disabled child premium; 3. disability premium, enhanced disability premium or severe disability premium; or 4. a pensioner premium, higher pensioner premium or enhanced pensioner premium. Group three is known as the Super Priority Group. If you fall within Group two or three, you may be required to provide proof of age and receipt of benefits

I was advised the governments grants are coming to the end by the end of this year but as there is still a large remaining budget. The rules have been changed to the end of the year to open it up to everyone (Homeowners) regardless of the circumstances in order to use up the allocated budget..
I do not qualify for any benefits and had loft insulation installed completely free (by an independant) last week. I was advised that the work had to be completed before the end of November for them to get the grants in time. Might have been a sales technique though.

it still isnt free. the energy companies put the cost on to everyone's bill (about £300 per year for every customer for the next 10 years!)

My mistake, its not that much added to everyone's bills:-

7. According to Ofgem, green energy measures currently make up £100 or 7% of a typical household energy bill [3] . Wholesale fuel costs account for £600 or 48%, supplier costs and margin account for £273 or 22%.
