What Does The EDF Insulation Grants Cover?

As part of the Great British Insulation Scheme (GBIS), which works alongside the government energy-efficiency scheme ECO4, EDF is offering insulation grants to help install energy efficiency measurements in homes across the United Kingdom. Through the installation of these measures, the government is hoping to reduce the average energy usage of households as well as help you to reduce your energy bills. It is estimated that each household should save approximately £310 a year on their bills through the scheme.

The GBIS scheme was launched during the summer of 2023 and will run until March 2026. But you may be wondering what types of insulation EDF’s grants cover? Through the scheme, the energy company is offering cavity wall and loft insulation.

What Is Cavity Wall Insulation?

The term relates to the process of installing insulation material in the space that lies between the inner and outer wall of properties. The primary aim of cavity wall insulation is to trap warm air inside the building, while also preventing air from circulating around the cavity. Below, we have compiled a list of the main advantages and disadvantages of installing cavity wall insulation:

Cavity wall insulation

Pros

Cons

  • Stop heat from escaping through the walls of your home.
  • Depending on the material used, the insulation may sag over time.
  • Insulating your home can lead to a reduction in your energy bills.
  • If exposed to moisture, the insulation will cease to work effectively.
  • Help reduce draughts in your property.
  • By filling the cavity between the inner and outer wall, you will no longer have a gap to prevent moisture from getting to your inner wall from the outside.
  • Cavity wall insulation is considered one of the cheapest methods to insulate your home.
  • Depending on the size of the cavity between the two walls, the insulation method may not be as effective.
  • Unlike other energy efficiency methods, cavity wall insulation will not change the outward appearance of your home.
  • An obvious disadvantage, but if the insulation is fitted poorly then it will not be as effective.
  • This type of insulation is quick to install, meaning we won’t disturb your life for too long during the installation process.
 
  • You may also see a reduction in condensation, which is a common cause of black mould in homes.
 
  • An added benefit of cavity wall insulation is that it also acts to soundproof your home. Perfect if you have noisy neighbours.

What Is Loft Insulation?

Similar to cavity wall insulation, the primary purpose of loft insulation is to trap heat inside your home. But loft insulation, as you can guess, is installed solely in your loft and will be placed between either the joists or the rafters in your roof space. Below, we have included a list of the main advantages and disadvantages of installing loft insulation in your home:

 

Loft insulation

Pros

Cons

  • By insulating your loft you can see a reduction in your energy bills as well as your carbon footprint.

  • While the loft insulation stops heat escaping from the living areas of your home, it can leave your loft vulnerable to colder conditions. This can lead to either condensation or damp issues if left untreated.

  • During the winter months your home will remain warmer. While in the summer months the insulation will help keep the warm air out, leaving your home cooler.

  • Relating to the disadvantage above, insulating your loft can sometimes lead to pipes bursting due to the temperature difference.

  • By using the correct insulation material, loft insulation can help reduce the amount of condensation in your home.

  • Similar to cavity wall insulation, if your loft insulation has not been done to a good standard then it will not be as effective.

  • Similar to cavity wall insulation, loft insulation can help reduce outside noises.

 
  • If you insulate your roof space you may also see an increase in your property value.

Am I Eligible For An EDF Insulation Grant?

If you have decided that you want to take advantage of the EDF Insulation Grants, then the next step is to see whether you are eligible. As part of the Great British Insulation Scheme, there is a pre-set eligibility criteria. You must fall into one of the two following groups to receive the grant:

General Eligibility Group

Those that are eligible as part of the general eligibility group may receive a single insulation measure. However, if you are part of the private rental sector, you will not be eligible for an insulation method as part of this group. To be eligible your home must:

  • Fall into Council Tax bands A to D in England.
  • Fall into Council Tax bands A to E in Wales or Scotland.
  • And have an EPC rating of D or below.

 

Low-income Eligibility Group

If you don’t fall into the above criteria, then you may be eligible through the low-income eligibility criteria. This means you must:

  • Receive means-tested benefits.
  • And have an EPC rating of D or below.

 

As part of this eligibility group, individuals in the private rental sector will be eligible if they have an EPC rating of either D or E. However, you will not receive any heating control measures, and if your EPC rating is below E, you are not eligible.

 

Do I Need To Be An EDF Customer To Be Eligible For An EDF Insulation Grant?

No, you do not need to be an existing EDF customer in order to receive an EDF insulation grant. The Great British Insulation Scheme grant is available to anyone that is eligible for it.

EDF Insulation Grants Summary

How Does 0% VAT On Insulation Help Me?

The UK government has applied 0% VAT on all Energy Saving Materials in the UK – and this applies to cavity wall insulation, too. First introduced in April 2022, 0% VAT on insulation is set to last until the end of March 2027.

This is automatically applied on any qualifying purchase, so you don’t have to apply through a scheme or anything – you just get to enjoy cheaper cavity wall insulation, which will help stretch those government grants even further.
