Warm Front Scheme

The Warm Front Scheme is a Government-backed initiative that aims to provide heating and insulation systems for homes that are on a range of income-related benefits. It is aimed to help those who are living in properties that are poorly insulated or do not have a fully functioning central heating system, with the idea being both to ensure the residents of said homes remain warm and the properties themselves become more energy efficient.

Domestic and General Insulation install insulation systems as part of the scheme and qualifying households are eligible to receive improvements that are worth up to £3,500. In special cases additional grant money is also available, specifically when oil boiler installations or other alternative technologies are considered.

Domestic and General Insulation are able to work with Warm Front grants that are available for a host of different heating solutions, including;

As long as the work doesn’t cost more than the grant available it will be absolutely free! If the work happens to cost more than the grant you will be asked to contribute the difference. No work will be carried out until this is agreed upon by all involved.
