The Government’s popular Green Deal Home Improvement Fund (GDHIF) is to reopen for Solid Wall Insulation applications at midday on Monday 16th March in England and Wales and the National Insulation Association (NIA) is urging householders to contact its members to take advantage of the scheme to upgrade their property’s energy efficiency.
Under this latest GDHIF householders will be able to apply for:
– Up to £3,750 towards the cost of installing Solid Wall Insulation
– Up to £1,250 for installing two measures from an approved list including cavity wall insulation, floor insulation, roof insulation and central heating boilers and
– Up to £100 rebate towards the cost of a Green Deal Advice Report.
The scheme also entitles those who have bought a property in the 12 months before applying to qualify for an additional £500 if they carry out energy efficiency improvements.
Neil Marshall Chief Executive of the NIA commented: “The NIA welcomes this funding for the GDHIF and the Government’s continued commitment to helping households to reduce their fuel bills and increase the comfort of their homes.
As before, householders will need to obtain a quotation for the work to be undertaken in order to apply for a voucher. Therefore, we are urging householders to contact their local Green Deal accredited NIA Installer or Green Deal Provider members without delay to find out more about GDHIF and arrange a survey and quotation.”
Householders can be safe in the knowledge that an NIA member will have signed up to a strict Code of Professional Practice, meaning peace of mind comes as standard.
