Great British Insulation Scheme Scotland

We can help you get free insulation for your home, using this government-backed scheme.

The Great British Insulation Scheme

The Great British Insurance Scheme (GBIS) has recently been expanded, to make it easier for more people to in Scotland (and across the UK) to make their homes more energy-efficient by improving the insulation of their homes.

Why is this? This government-backed scheme aims to make improvements to the least energy-efficient homes in Scotland & across the UK. Ultimately, this will help reduce carbon emissions & help reduce fuel poverty by reducing the cost of heating a home.

It is now a lot easier for homes to get free insulation, as the GBIS is not dependent on someone receiving benefits.

Does your home qualify? In order to qualify, your home must require some kind of energy-saving upgrade, such as loft insulation or cavity wall insulation. We provide a free home survey to establish if making changes to your home could reduce energy consumption, bills & carbon dioxide emissions.

Assuming your home qualifies, there are then two routes for us to help you get a free grant. Click here to read about eligibility for the GBIS. Even better, just fill in a few details to apply for a GBIS free survey & we will call you back.
