THE GREEN HOMES GRANT SCHEME - OUR SOLUTIONS

Take comfort from our market-leading expertise and get the most from the green homes grant scheme with Saint-Gobain

The announcement of the £2 billion 2020 Green Homes Grant Scheme will see up to 600,000 homeowners and private landlords receive grants to improve the thermal performance and energy efficiency of their properties.

From the end of September, homeowners will be able to apply for vouchers to cover up to two thirds of the cost of installing energy efficient and low-carbon heating improvements in their homes.

Primarily the scheme covers the installation of low-carbon heating (solar thermal systems, air source or ground source heat pumps and biomass pellet boilers) and insulation (e.g. underfloor, loft, roof, solid wall or cavity wall).

Providing at least one of these primary measures is installed, homeowners can also apply for funding towards new glazing, energy efficient doors, draught proofing or heating controls.

This a great opportunity to improve the UK's housing stock, reduce carbon emissions and combat climate change, as well as improve the comfort and wellbeing of homes. 

At Saint-Gobain we are committed to creating great living places that improve daily life. As part of this commitment, the Saint-Gobain brands of British Gypsum, Saint-Gobain Insulation UK and Weber can offer a range of solutions to get the most out of the Green Homes Grant Scheme.

EXTERNAL WALL INSULATION

EXTERNAL WALL INSULATION

Weber’s External Wall Insulation (EWI) provides the perfect solution for homes built before the 1920s which usually have external solid walls. Solid walls have no gap so they can’t be filled with cavity wall insulation.

 

Solid walls can be insulated though External Wall Insulation which makes it possible to insulate a home by fitting the insulation on the outside of the property, improving thermal performance and reducing energy consumption as part of the Green Homes Grant Scheme, whilst updating the aesthetics of the property.
