It was announced today that from 9am on Wednesday 10 December, the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund (GDHIF) will open to new applications. Up to £30 million in vouchers will be available, with up to £24 million of that specifically for solid wall insulation.

DECC has confirmed that the funding provides 67% of the cost, up to a maximum of £4000 for solid wall insulation. Customers who have purchased their property in the last 12 months may be eligible for an additional £500 home buyers bonus. There is also a refund of up to £100 for a Green Deal Advice Report, subject to a successful voucher application.

In order to claim your voucher you will need:
• A Green Deal Advice Report (GDAR) or Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) that is less than 2 years old
• A quote from a GDHIF registered installer for work specified on the GDAR/EPC

An Important Message to InBuild Customers

Earlier this year, £70 million in vouchers was claimed in just a few days so we expect this funding to be taken up very quickly. We encourage householders who wish to proceed with external wall insulation to apply for their voucher this Wednesday, when the scheme opens to new applications.

InBuild is a registered GDHIF installer, so if you have a quote from us for external wall insulation and a valid GDAR or EPC that recommends this measure, then you are ready to make your application. If you have any queries or concerns about making the application, please call our Customer Support Team on 01268 724455 (select option 1 and then 1 again) before Wednesday 10 December.

We are currently issuing revised quotations showing the GDHIF discount that applies to each quotation. If you haven’t received yours by Tuesday, please call our Customer Support Team on 01268 724455 (select option 1 and then 1 again).

Name Change

You will be aware that on 01 December we changed our name from Essex Insulation to InBuild. If you have selected us as your GDHIF registered installer, please state the name of your installing company on your voucher application as Essex Insulation.

Funds are limited and DECC may vary the terms of the scheme (including the incentive rates) or suspend or close the scheme, with immediate effect, without notice and at any time.
