    Energy Grants\anything available? 13th Jan 19 at 9:32 PM
    Hi there

    I'm just looking around, I have bought a 3 bed house, literally every penny I had went into it.
    It's a 60's house that's had little to no modernisation, and its not energy efficient at all.


    A list of things we need to do, at some point:

    Double glazing (currently single glazed)

    Insulate Lofts

    Cavity wall insulation

    Replace front and back door

    Insulate pipes


    I am not in a financial position to do much at all right now, but from what I can tell at least the government will only fund those on low income/in receipt of benefits so we don't seem to qualitfy.

    Just wondering if anyone knows of any schemes that might or possibly will be applicable for us

    Thanks

    Have a shufti on the Energy Savings Trust website and even ask your energy suppliers.

    There was some money a couple of years ago but most of it seems to have dried up although there was some talk of the government reviving some aspects of the old Green Deal, however I guess they have other things on their mind at the moment.

    This might help - https://www.which.co.uk/reviews/home-grants/article/home-grants/the-green-deal
