Warm Front: get a free insulation and heating upgrade

Get £3,500 worth of insulation and heating improvements for your home.

If you need some help with the cost of home insulation and heating improvements, Warm Front should be your first port of call. It’s a government-funded scheme managed by Eaga, offering grants of either £3,500 or (or £6,000 where oil, low carbon or renewable technologies are recommended) to pay for the upgrades. A Warm Front refurb will cut your carbon and make your home warmer and cheaper to run.

You can apply for a Warm Front grant through the website, although you’ll need to fit the qualifying criteria to be in the running.
