Up to 75% of the total cost of the installation of internal or external solid wall insulation, up to a maximum value of £6,000, making this high carbon saving improvement much more affordable.

Core Offer 3


Householders can also claim a refund of up to £100 for a Green Deal Assessment Report (GDAR) that is less than 24 months old when they do work in this scheme.

Homebuyers, who have bought a home in the 12 months prior to application, can also apply and claim up to £7,600 as a bundled package.

Core Offer 4


An additional bonus of up to £500 for homebuyers who have bought a home in the last 12 months prior to application.

To be eligible for the GDHIF scheme offers householders must satisfy the following incentive criteria:

  • Customers must apply for the voucher before the work starts
  • Measures must be recommended in an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) or GDAR carried out in the last 24 months
  • Customers will not be eligible for the GDHIF incentive if they receive ECO or other central Government funding, on the energy saving improvements applied for under GDHIF

GDHIF is designed to work alongside Green Deal finance and householders may consider the Green Deal finance option to help fund some of the cost of the installation, but they will not be required to do so in
