Applications have just opened for the latest round of funding from the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund. The fund can be used towards making energy-saving home improvements, including up to 67 per cent off the cost of installing solid wall insulation.

You can also get up to £1,250 towards the cost of installing any two of the following:

  • a condensing gas boiler on mains gas
  • double or triple glazing as a replacement for single glazing
  • secondary glazing
  • energy efficient replacement external doors
  • cavity wall insulation
  • floor insulation
  • flat-roof insulation
  • insulating a loft conversion
  • a replacement warm air unit
  • fan-assisted storage heaters
  • a waste water heat recovery system – this recovers the heat from water your bath or shower sends down the plughole and uses it to heat incoming mains water.

You can get up to £500 more if you apply within 12 months of buying a home.

To qualify you need a Green Deal advice report or an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) that is less than two years old, which recommends the improvements you are applying for. Other terms and conditions apply.

You can apply for the GDHIF if you’re a homeowner, landlord or a tenant in social or private rented housing.

Laura Polglase of Putney based Eco-Renovate said: "It is very easy to get an EPC done on your property. Our clients have told us that they have found it really useful to find out which improvements can make their homes warmer and more comfortable. However, you do need to apply quickly for the GDHIF as the money does run out."
