Green Home Grants Scheme Demystified

Lets take a look at whats involved, and what you can expect.
We’ve answered some of the most common questions we get asked below.

Homeowners and landlords in England can apply for a voucher towards the cost of installing energy efficient and low-carbon heating improvements to homes, which could help save up to £600 a year on energy bills.

The government will provide a voucher that covers up to two thirds of the cost of qualifying improvements to your home. The maximum value of the voucher is £5,000. You may be able to receive a higher level of subsidy if you are a homeowner and either you or a member of your household receives one of the qualifying benefits, covering 100% of the cost of the improvements. The maximum value of these vouchers is £10,000.

Landlords cannot apply for the low-income part of the scheme.

Local Authorities in England will also be making support available for low income households in their local area through the Green Homes Grant: Local Authority Delivery. Contact your Local Authority to see if they are participating in this scheme and for further information.

Vouchers must be used to install at least one primary home insulation or low carbon heating measure.

If you choose to install at least one of the primary measures, you can use your voucher to help cover the cost of secondary measures. The subsidy for the secondary measure is capped at the value of the subsidy provided for the primary measures. For example, if you receive £400 for a primary measure such as a cavity wall insulation, you will be able to receive a maximum of £400 for a secondary measure such as an energy efficient replacement door.

The primary and secondary measures are set out below:

Primary Measures

Insulation:

  • Solid wall
  • Cavity wall
  • Under-floor insulation (solid floor: suspended floor)
  • Loft
  • Flat roof
  • Room in roof
  • Park home insulation

Low carbon heat:

  • Air source heat pump
  • Ground source heat pump
  • Solar thermal
  • Biomass boilers

Secondary Measures

Windows and doors:

  • Draught proofing
  • Double/triple glazing (where replacing single glazing)
  • Secondary glazing (in addition to single glazing)
  • Energy efficient replacement doors (replacing single glazed or solid doors installed before 2002)

Heating controls and insulation:

  • Hot water tank thermostats
  • Hot water tank insulation
  • Solar thermal
  • Heating controls (e.g. smart heating controls, zone controls, intelligent delayed start thermostat and thermostatic radiator valves)

Replacing your outside doors with highly insulated and well draught-proofed doors will help keep your home warm in general, and particularly the room that the door opens into.

Benefits:

  • Fewer cold spots
  • Lower bills
  • Opportunity to increase security or improve appearance at the same time

What it is:

Replacing your outside doors with highly insulated and well draught-proofed doors will help keep your home warm in general, and particularly the room that the door opens into.

Many older external doors fit poorly in their frames, letting cold draughts in. Also, the door itself will often be made of material that lets heat escape even if the draughts are sealed effectively.

A modern, high performance door will fit snugly and securely in its frame to keep the weather out in general, and the wind in particular. It will also be a good insulator, stopping heat escaping through the door itself. The door may be made of wood, metal or PVC, often with insulation built into the structure. It may be partially or fully glazed, in which case this will be double or even triple glazing.

Is it right for me?

If you have old or poor quality outside doors, then you could benefit from replacing them with something more effective at keeping the heat in.

If your front door, or any other door that opens to the outside air, doesn’t fit well, is old or is made of cheap material, then it could be losing a lot of heat to the outside. You could cut that heat loss significantly by replacing it with a high-performance door.

How much difference you notice will depend on how bad your existing door is – you can probably get some idea from how cold the room is, and how much colder it feels when you approach the door.

If you have a porch on the outside of the door, then this will already be helping a bit. You won’t get quite as much benefit from replacing the door, but you should still feel some improvement.

Many people won't want to change their doors for energy reasons alone, but if you're thinking it’s time for a new door it could be worth spending a bit more on a high performance one.

Internal doors that lead from one room to another are not so important for keeping the heat in. You’ll still want to keep them shut to minimise draughts, especially if one of the rooms isn’t being heated, but there’s no need to replace an internal door with a high performance alternative.

Do I need permission?

You won’t usually need permission to change your front door unless you live in a conservation area or a listed building.
