If you’re a npower customer, you could be eligible for free insulation grants through the government’s ECO4 (Energy Company Obligation) scheme. This means you could get the type of insulation you need for your home without worrying about the installation cost. 

A home insulation grant from npower will bring you the benefit of a more energy efficient home that will feel warmer and more comfortable overall. Additionally it will help you lower the amount of carbon being emitted from your home which is beneficial in reducing the impact of climate change, plus you will make significant savings on your energy bills every year!

How can you qualify for free npower insulation?

ECO4 is the latest iteration of the government-backed scheme that aims to help domestic households across the UK lower their carbon emissions in order to reach the target of nationwide net zero emissions by 2050. Npower and other large energy companies including British Gas, EON, EDF, and more all have an obligation through the ECO scheme to provide grants for energy efficient home improvements to eligible homes.

There have been some changes to the qualifying criteria for Npower insulation grants under ECO4. This is to ensure that low-income households who are struggling to stay on top of their energy bills can access the grants as a priority. To be eligible for free Npower insulation you need to be either a homeowner or a private tenant, have an energy inefficient home with a low Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating and a combined household income of less than £31,000, or be claiming one or more of the income-related benefits below:

  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance (JSA)
  • Warm Home Discount Scheme Rebate
  • Housing Benefit (new for ECO4)
  • Working Tax Credit (WTC)
  • Universal Credit (UC)
  • Pension Credit Savings Credit (new for ECO4)
  • Pension Credit Guarantee Credit
  • Child Benefits
  • Child Tax Credit (CTC)
  • Income Support (IS)

What types of npower insulation can you apply for through ECO4?

Free loft insulation from Npower

Many homeowners are not aware of just how much heat can be lost through an uninsulated roof. By applying for free npower loft insulation funding through the ECO4 scheme you could end up saving up to £590 (according to Energy Saving Trust figures for a previously uninsulated gas-heated detached property, and based on fuel prices as of October 2022) on your energy bills annually, depending on the type of property you live in.

Having your loft insulated can cost from around £445 for a standard mid-terrace house. If you’re a low-income household on a tight budget this could be difficult to fund these insulation improvements. That is why it is important to check if you qualify for grants for loft insulation from Npower, as the installation costs can be fully funded for you, and you can enjoy the noticeable advantages of loft insulation.

Individuals that are living in inefficient homes and need loft insulation or cavity wall insulation and are not claiming benefits or tax credits, can in some cases, still be eligible if their council or housing association is taking part in LA Flex.

Free cavity wall insulation from Npower

Cavity walls (outside and inside walls) are usually insulated by drilling multiple small holes in the mortar at regular intervals (roughly 25mm across) and then injecting the insulating material into the cavity. After the npower cavity wall insulation is added, the holes are refilled. In certain situations, a telescopic lance system for the walls is used.

If your home was constructed in the last 20 years or so, the walls are probably already insulated. If you are not certain whether you have unfilled cavity walls, you can speak to your local authority’s building control department to find out. Also, your installers will complete a free survey to check whether your house is suitable for npower cavity wall insulation grants.
