Insulation can help Forfar homeowners create warmer, more energy-efficient homes.

Forfar's climate can be notoriously chilly, making effective insulation a vital investment for both energy efficiency and comfort.

Properly insulated homes maintain a more stable internal temperature, minimizing the need for heating and cooling systems to work excessively. This not only reduces energy consumption but also leads to substantial savings on electricity and gas bills.

Beyond financial and environmental advantages, home insulation also enhances indoor comfort and health. Insulation helps in maintaining a consistent indoor climate, preventing drafts and cold spots during winter and reducing heat during summer. This creates a more comfortable living environment throughout the year.

Loft Insulation Forfar

One of the most common types of insulation we install in Forfar is loft insulation. This involves adding a layer of material to the space between the ceiling and the roof. This helps to prevent heat from escaping through the roof, keeping your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

In Forfar, where temperatures can drop significantly during the colder months, loft insulation is an essential component of a well-insulated home.


Internal Wall Insulation Forfar

Internal wall insulation involves adding insulation material to the interior walls of your home.

This helps to prevent heat loss through the walls, improving energy efficiency and reducing heating costs. Internal wall insulation can be particularly beneficial in older homes with solid walls, which tend to be less energy-efficient than newer properties with cavity walls.


Room in Roof Insulation Forfar

Room in Roof insulation, another popular type of insulation in Forfar, is also known as attic room insulation.

It is specifically designed for homes with converted loft spaces. By insulating the walls and roof of the attic room, this type of insulation helps to maintain a comfortable temperature and reduce heating costs.

Room in roof insulation can make a significant difference in both comfort and energy efficiency.


Underfloor Insulation Forfar

ECO4 Grant funding in Scotland


The ECO4 scheme in Scotland offers grants to homeowners and private tenants to enhance energy efficiency and reduce heating expenses. Available until March 2026, this government-funded program aims to lower energy bills and decrease carbon emissions.

Through the scheme, energy suppliers must provide grants for energy-saving measures across three categories: heating, insulation, and low-carbon technologies. These measures can include cavity wall insulation, solid wall insulation, solar panels, and heat pumps.

For a household to qualify for the ECO4 grant, it must meet both of the following conditions:

Energy Rating: The property must have a low energy rating, specifically in the E to G range. This means the property's Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) should indicate an energy efficiency rating within this range.

High Energy Costs: The property must have high energy costs. Ofgem typically defines high energy costs for properties that use electric heating or are off the gas grid, relying on alternative heating sources like oil or LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) boilers.

In addition, a member of the household must be in receipt of one of the following means-tested benefits:

  • Working Tax Credits
  • Child Tax Credits
  • Income Support
  • Income-based ESA
  • Income-based JSA
  • Pension Savings Credit
  • Pension Guarantee Credit
  • Housing Benefit
  • Universal Credit

What is the Great British Insulation Scheme?

The Great British Insulation Scheme (GBIS) is a government initiative designed to help residents insulate their homes, enhance energy efficiency, and reduce energy costs. The scheme will be in effect until March 2026.

Under this scheme, energy suppliers are required to assist customers in lowering their heating bills by installing energy efficiency measures. In some cases, a contribution may be required from the homeowner, depending on the specific measure and any property issues.

The scheme complements the Energy Company Obligation (ECO4) scheme, yet unlike ECO4’s ‘whole house’ approach, this scheme will mostly deliver single insulation measures.

The GBIS provides a range of primary and secondary insulation measures.

Primary Measures (available to both eligibility groups):

Cavity wall insulation (including party walls)
External/internal/hybrid wall insulation
Loft insulation
Room-in-roof insulation
Pitched roof insulation
Floor insulation
Park home insulation
Solid wall insulation

Secondary Measures (available only to the low-income eligibility group):

Thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs)
Boiler programmer & room thermostat

Secondary measures are only available if a primary insulation measure has been installed in the same property under the scheme.

The GBIS targets two groups: the general eligibility group and the low-income and social housing group. Below are the requirements for each group.

General Eligibility Group:

- Properties in council tax bands A-D in England
- Properties in council tax bands A-E in Scotland
- Properties in council tax bands A-E in Wales with a SAP rating of D or below

Low-Income Group and Social Housing:

Householders receiving specific benefits or those below the equivalised income threshold for Child Benefit recipients.

Eligible benefits include:

- Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
- Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
- Income Support
- Pension Credit Guarantee Credit
- Working Tax Credit
- Child Tax Credit
- Universal Credit
- Housing Benefit
- Pension Credit Savings Credit
- Child Benefit
