GDHIF for solid wall insulation runs out in less than two days

Posted by Cathy Debenham on 11 December 2014 at 3:39 pm

Just a day and a half after the green deal home improvement fund opened for applications at 9am yesterday, the £24m worth of funding for solid wall insulation has all been allocated. 

Applications for solid wall insulation have now closed. However, it is still possible for householders to apply for the £6 million available for other energy efficient home improvements through GDHIF.

If you missed out on solid wall insulation, all is not lost. Details of further releases of funding will be announced on a quarterly basis with the next tranch expected in February 2015. Funding is part of the additional £100 million for household energy efficiency measures announced in October 2014 which is in addition to the £450 million already allocated to household energy efficiency over 2014 – 17.

Now is the time to prepare for your application. Then you will have it ready to apply as soon as the next announcement is made in February. 

To complete the application process for a voucher, you will need:

Green Deal Advice Report (GDAR) or Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) that is less than two years old

A quote from a GDHIF registered installer or provider for work specified on the GDAR or EPC and included on the list of GDHIF approved measures. The quote needs to include details such as the property address, the name of the installer, and the total estimated cost of the work to install each measure (including VAT). While it's not mandatory, we strongly urge you to get more than one quote. We also suggest you seek out recommended local installers, and avoid those who cold call you.

Proof of property ownership (only if you are a landlord)
