You don't have to be a British Gas customer

refer to site for details

As part of ECO (Energy Companies Obligation) British Gas are working with the government to make millions of homes across the UK more comfortable and cheaper to run with free roof and cavity wall insulation.

(Properties built from 1st January 1983 should already have cavity wall insulation, and any property built from 1st January 1991 should not need loft insulation.)

They also do free boilers and heating systems, got mines done (Scotland). Full system (boilers, Radiators and new pipes) as i had a new born and my old boiler packed in.

done it through energysavingtrust.org.uk/sco…and, to see what you can get the link is gidscotland.est.org.uk/Sch…spx

Not sure what the English website is.

I know someone that got her Roof, Cavity Wall Insulation, Full Heating system and triple glazing windows done from the government in her house

If you have 120mm of insulation in your loft already don't bother applying. Even though new building regs require double this.

So whats the point of the Government having wasted their time setting this? .. a tad bit ironic dont you think .....

Tell that to the surveyor from British Gas that came round and surveyed my loft!

If you already have insulation in your loft and it’s thicker than 100mm (4in), or if your loft has been converted to use as a living space we are not able to install insulation.

I would use these guys
energysavingtrust.org.uk/Tak…ant England
gidscotland.est.org.uk/Sch…spx Scotland

to see what els you can get done. as if you do your wall and loft 1st you might not be able to claim other things like boilers, windows, energy saving light bulbs, loft, walls and so on

If you do it online they normal give u a call. but best to do it online wait a day then give them a call.

i done mines and got a full heating system free and installed by British Gas

Any ideas on single bricked walls? We have an old house, end of terrace and its so cold in the winter.. we have super thick loft insulation, all double glazing ( except one patio door ) any advice would be great

What are the chances of getting any help if you are not lower end income wise? I always thought you had to be on some type of benefits to receive any assistance.

There is a simple check when you click the link... '
See if your home is eligible today' just enter your postcode and a few simple questions.. On the first set of questions there is a checkbox for 'not receiving any benefits'. It is more to do with the age and how in need your property is..
Just try the link to get an idea, it doesn't tie you in to anything.. :-)

I was getting this on my old house via door knocking people. I think it was energy trust people. I did reject them first saying dont waste your time, i am not on benefit then she said I still can get it because plenty providers offer free insulation with different condition. I let her in, she took measurement and detail. My house (mid terrace) already insulated on roof but she said I can get 50mm extra, making it into 300mm. A couple days later got a call confirm everything, told that npower providing it. Jobs done, a month later bloke from npower turn up to survey the work and asking if any difference noticed.
I didnt get answer for free boiler though (it was actually the one I was after).;)

You do not need to be on benefits or of a certain age just have permission from landlord or it is your own property. Only main limitations are you cannot have more than a certain amount of insulation already in place, 100mm I think for loft and anything in the walls. Also you can only have a maximum of a third of the loft boarded.

Anyone know of the equivalent in NI?

I'm sure there was also cashback via money saving expert or similar for getting British gas free insulation. The energy companies have insulation targets to meet or they get fined. I think British Gas have been already fined once for missing their target
