As your home loses approx 10% of it’s heat through a suspended floor, plus cold draughts and chills pass up through the floorboards, fully insulating your floor helps to retain heat in your home, which in turn reduces your fuel bills and amount of carbon emissions produced.
Underfloor Insulation Grants are available to homeowners and tenants that meet the ECO eligibility criteria.
The grant amount awarded varies based on the property type and current heating system. Homes with more expensive to run fuel bills will save more money through underfloor insulation and therefore receive higher grants.
In addition to suspended floor Insulation, we are also able to offer grants for loft insulation and wall insulation for both Cavity and Solid walls.
Please note that QERB Energy only use bead insulation for cavity walls to avoid damp issues that can be associated with fibre/wool products.
Homes that receive an underfloor insulation grant may also qualify for a boiler replacement/upgrade.
Rural Home Grant Application
Installing the insulation
To access under the floorboards to insulate the floor, our installers require an access point and at least 450mm of space under the floor. They are fully skilled to be able to create a new access hatch if required. If the depth is too shallow, we maybe able to insulate through lifting the floorboards, subject to the property type and flooring.
