The Warm front scheme helps with heating or insulating your home. This scheme is closing in England and the last day for new applications is 19th January.
You can check if you are eligible for the Warm Front scheme by calling the Energy Savings Advice Service on 0300 123 1234.
The CERT scheme has now in closed England, Wales and Scotland. Under that scheme energy firms all offered free or discounted insulation for private tenants and home owners.
After 19 January, help and support will be available under a scheme called the Energy Companies Obligation (ECO) which is paid for by the energy companies.
The Energy Companies Obligation scheme helps in three ways:
- Providing help with heating, hot water, insulation and glazing if you get certain benefits. Social housing tenants can’t get this help
- Providing help with insulation and glazing if you are on low-income and live in certain areas with a population size under 10,000
- Providing help with solid wall and cavity wall insulation for households in hard to treat homes.
The ECO will be open to those in England, Wales and Scotland.
