Energy Saving Advice

As part of our service, you’ll receive a completely FREE home energy survey looking at the energy efficiency of your home. Our friendly surveyors are full of tips on ways to reduce your fuel usage and save money.

Contact us today to arrange your home survey and to get your funding.


Cavity Wall Insulation

Around 33%* of a home’s heat is lost through uninsulated cavity walls. By having insulation professionally installed into the space between your home’s two layers of brick, you will save energy and reduce your heating bills.

You can expect to save around £300* per year on your energy bill (based on a gas-heated semi-detached home) rising to £520* per year (based on a gas-heated detached home).


Loft Insulation

In an uninsulated home, 25%* of the heat is lost through the roof. Insulating your loft is a great way to keep warmth inside your home, save energy and reduce heating bills. Loft insulation installed by Evolve is the best quality and will last for over 40 years with no loss of efficiency.

You can expect to save around £285* per year on your energy bill (based on a gas-heated semi-detached home) rising to £475* per year (based on a gas-heated detached home).

Where does the funding come from?

The funding comes from energy companies (such as Octopus Energy or Scottish Power) who are obligated by the government to use their profits to make UK homes more energy efficient, easier to keep warm and less expensive to heat. It’s known as the Energy Company Obligation (or ECO for short) and we are in the fourth phase of it known as ECO4. The Great British Insulation Scheme is a part of the wider ECO scheme in the UK.

What if I don’t qualify for this scheme?

Please get in touch, there might be other sources of funding, or special offers, that could work for you.

How do I find my EPC rating?

Easy, simply go to https://www.gov.uk/find-energy-certificate and enter your address. If the property has a valid EPC you’ll be able to view it online.

How do I find my Council Tax band?

You can check your bill or go online to https://www.gov.uk/council-tax-bands, enter your postcode and your property’s banding can be viewed (A-I in Wales; A-H in England).

I rent privately, do I qualify?

Private renters are eligible for the Great British Insulation Scheme, you just need to have the permission of your landlord for the upgrade and meet the qualifying criteria (group 1 or group 2).

I live in social housing, do I qualify?

The Great British Insulation Scheme isn’t currently open to those living in social housing, but there are other schemes available under the UK’s ECO scheme. Please give us a call and we may still be able to help, alternatively speak to your housing association and they may be able to signpost to ways to upgrade your home.

Will I have to pay anything?

There may be a small contribution in the minority of cases but this would only be known once the Home Energy Assessment has been completed. Generally, this is a completely free of charge opportunity, where costs are covered by Great British Insulation Scheme funding.

Who will install the insulation?

The insulation will be installed by Evolve’s experienced, professional crews following a Home Energy Assessment.

What insulation can I get?

Loft or cavity wall insulation, both of which can dramatically improve a home’s energy efficiency and comfort levels.
