Government Urged to Support Solid Wall Insulation

15th August 2014
The Insulated Render and Cladding Association (INCA) ( of which SERS are a member) is calling on Government to act quickly and reopen the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund (GDHIF) to help households living in solid wall properties to install solid wall insulation (SWI) and reduce their energy bills.

GDHIF was designed to support the development of the SWI supply chain following the reduction in the target for SWI under the Energy Company Obligation (ECO), which was announced in December 2013. However, after changes to GDHIF were announced last month, there was a huge surge in applications for funding and the budget limit for the scheme was reached resulting in its closure after just six weeks. This has left households, many of whom have already paid out for Green Deal Advice Reports (GDARs), stranded in cold, leaky solid wall properties and unable to obtain funding for installing SWI.

SERS supports INCA’s plight to encourage the Government to quickly reintroduce the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund in order to allow many more homes to benefit from substantial funding towards the cost of solid wall insulation.

SERS are however pleased to be able to offer both private finance and Green Deal Packages to homes who want to benefit from solid wall insulation and the substantial financial savings which it can bring on heating bills.
