Looking for an Energy Assessment?

You will need an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) before you consider undertaking any significant energy efficiency measures or if you are considering selling or letting a property. If you don't have one, you will need to complete the booking form below.

  • Green Deal Finance

    The government provides financial support to help households invest in energy efficient improvements. Green Deal finance works just like a loan, with monthly repayments that are included as part of your energy bill. 

    The energy saving improvements made to your property will reduce your energy consumption, so your energy costs will reduce too. The cost of repaying the Green Deal loan is added to your overall energy bill, but the ‘golden rule’ of the Green Deal means that the estimated cost of your new energy bill plus the Green Deal repayments must be less than your original bill, before the improvements were made.  This means that a benefit is guaranteed.

    As an accredited Green Deal provider, we can give you advice on the Green Deal scheme and help you realise the energy saving potential of your property by creating a tailored funding and finance package just for you. The first step in arranging Green Deal finance is to book your Green Deal Assessment.

    Green Deal Assessments

    This is carried out in the property by a Green Deal Advisor or Assessor who will:

    • identify what improvements you can make and what the financial savings will be
    • outline how the payments will work
    • identify which improvements are likely to be cost effective
    • produce a Green Deal advice report outlining your options

    We provide Green Deal plans in partnership with a network of trusted installers. You will need to contact your local installer to obtain a quotation for the energy efficiency improvements you need. See the map below for your nearest installer.

    Independent and impartial advice about the Green Deal can be obtained on 0300 123 1234 or at www.gov.uk/greendeal.

  • Solid Wall Insulation

    If your home was built before 1920, it’s likely that the external walls are solid rather than cavity walls. Many other property types such as mid-rise or high-rise blocks of flats are often solid wall construction. Unfortunately, solid walls let through twice as much heat as cavity walls - but there is a solution.

    Solid walls can be insulated from the inside or outside and although it's a relatively expensive energy efficiency measure to install, the savings on bills can be dramatic, especially if coupled with other measures such as loft insulation and solar power. Remember - the better insulated your home, the less money you will need to spend on heating it.

    How does it work?

    Depending on the type of property, you can opt for either internal or external wall insulation.

    For properties with attractive brickwork and period features, then internal wall insulation might be the best solution. This is done by fitting rigid insulation boards to the internal wall.

    For other structures, external wall insulation is a solution which involves fixing a layer of insulation material to the wall, then covering it with a special type of render or cladding. The finish can be smooth, textured, painted, tiled, panelled, pebble-dashed, or finished with brick slips.

    Are there any grants or subsidies available?

    Yes, there are several types or grants and subsidies available. Subsidy levels are particularly attractive for solid-walled properties that are not heated by natural gas (e.g. with electrical, oil, solid fuel or LPG heating). Solid wall insulation also qualifies for Green Deal financing. Additionally, installing solid wall insulation could save you up to £455 every year* so the benefits soon outweigh the costs.

  • Cavity Wall Insulation

    If your home was built after 1920, it is likely that the property has cavity walls. This means the outside walls are made up of two layers with a cavity in between. Cavity wall insulation fills that gap and keeps warmth from escaping. The result is that less energy is needed to heat your home and the insulation can also help to reduce condensation inside the home. Advances in material science and production means there are even easier and more cost effective solutions for insulating cavity walls, reducing heat loss by up to a third and potentially saving up to £250 a year on your energy bills*. 

    How does it work?

    The installation process is relatively simple and takes around 4 hours to complete with minimum impact on residents. After a successful survey, qualified technicians will pump high quality glass or mineral fibre into the cavity between the external walls.

    Any property receiving cavity wall insulation from a qualified technician will qualify for a government backed 25 year CIGA (Cavity Insulation Guarantee Agency) guarantee.
     

    Are there any grants or subsidies available?

    Yes, there are several types or grants and subsidies available, particularly if the property is in a qualifying area or someone living in the property qualifies. Cavity wall insulation also qualifies for Green Deal financing.

    Cavity Wall Insulation
  • Hard-to-Treat Cavity Wall Insulation

    Around a third of all heat lost in an un-insulated home is lost through the walls and for millions of homes around the UK, solid walls or non-traditional building techniques mean that cavity wall insulation is simply not possible.

    Hard-to-treat cavity walls usually have one of the following characteristics:  

    • Narrow cavities that are less than 50mm wide
    • Concrete construction (pre-fabricated concrete constructions systems with cavities)
    • Metal frame construction
    • Random stone cavity (uneven cavities formed in walls constructed of natural stone outer leaf and block/brick inner leaf)
    • Timber frame un-insulated studwork cavity (also has a masonry cavity, which must not be filled)
    • Too high (three or more storeys tall) or has accessibility issues which would bring about additional cost
       

    How does it work?

    The standard practice for insulating a hard-to-treat cavity is to drill holes in the outer leaf of brickwork and inject insulation material into the wall cavity.

    Essentially, holes are drilled in a specific pattern and insulation material (usually glass or mineral fibre or polystyrene beads) is injected in a staged process to ensure the whole cavity is filled from the bottom to the top and a mortar is used to fill the holes in the external brickwork to complete the job.

    Qualified surveyors will determine the best approach to insulate the cavity wall. They will then design a plan to meet your needs and install the insulation by causing the least disruption to you.
     

    Are there any grants or subsidies available?

    Yes, there are several types or grants and subsidies available if the property is in a qualifying area or someone living in the property qualifies. Cavity wall insulation also qualifies for Green Deal financing.
