Free Loft Insulation

Loft insulation is one of the easiest and most cost effective ways to improve the warmth and energy efficiency of your home. It should be treated as an investment; one that future proofs your home and makes it healthy and liveable for years to come.

The government has set up a range of grants available to eligible householders that entitle them to free loft insulation or a contribution towards the overall cost. The aim of these grants is to help householders create easier to heat, and more energy efficient homes that are healthier to live in.

The eligibility for free loft insulation is based on certain personal criteria and circumstances of the householder, and those living in the house. If you own your own home, or rent it from a private landlord you are already on your way! In addition to this, if anybody in your home receives special benefits, such as working tax credit, child tax credit or state pension credit - then you could be eligible for free loft insulation.

How do I get free loft insulation?

Scottish Power

Scottish Power offers their customers, and in some cases non customers, free loft insulation if they meet certain criteria. To qualify for this grant, applicants must own their own home or rent it from a private landlord. Someone in the household must provide evidence they’re in receipt of particular benefits before a pre home assessment will deem whether the house is suitable for free loft insulation.

British Gas

Under the governments ECO scheme, British Gas is obligated to pay for and install free loft insulation to those that qualify under the scheme. If you live in certain postcode areas and receive certain income benefits you may be entitled to free loft insulation as well as other forms of insulation under this scheme. A home inspection will take place during the process, and you could have your free loft insulation installed within a few days.


Npower offers free loft insulation specifically to those receiving certain benefits. You don’t have to be an Npower customer to qualify, and to those that aren’t eligible under the scheme, they offer free energy saving home improvements and payment options.
