Sustainable Warmth - Home Upgrade Grant

The Sustainable Warmth Scheme - Home Upgrade Grant is a new Government backed scheme delivered by Local Authorities to improve the energy efficiency of eligible households for free (a contribution will be expected from Landlords).

The aim is to help residents to improve the warmth and comfort of their homes whilst also reducing energy bills, carbon emissions and the levels of fuel poverty across Lancashire.

The Lancashire Authorities have been successful in attracting £8.5 million of Government funding. The scheme aims to raise the energy efficiency of low energy performance homes which do not have gas central heating by installing insulation measures, upgrading single glazed windows to double glazing units and installing renewable heating technologies such as Air Source Heat Pumps and Solar Thermal/

To benefit from the scheme your property must have an Energy Performance Certificate Rating of D, E , F or G. If you're not sure then you can check on the EPC Register. If your property does not have an EPC then we can do this under the scheme however if the survey shows your house has an EPC Rating of A, B or C then it would not qualify for any measures.
