Room in the roof (Attic Room) Insulation Grants

Insulating a room in your roof or attic space is essential for maintaining a warm home and reducing energy bills. At Eco-Home Network, we are pleased to offer grants for insulating the entire Room in the roof area, including sloping areas, dormer windows, and gable walls. These grants are made possible by the government's Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme.

Eligibility

Low-income households in the UK can receive a free upgrade for their room in the roof insulation. To qualify for the grant, your property must have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of G, F, or E. You must either claim an eligible benefit or have an illness affected by the cold.

Benefits of Room in the Roof Insulation

Insulating your room in the roof can provide significant benefits for homeowners:

  • Reduces heat loss, keeping your home warmer
  • Improves comfort in your home
  • Saves money on energy bills by reducing the energy required to heat your home

Determining if Your Property Has a Room in the Roof Area

To determine if your property has a room in the roof area, the height of the common wall must be less than 1.8m for at least 50% of the common wall (excluding gable ends and party walls). This includes Loft conversions, dormer bungalows/chalet bungalows, or original storeys with a common wall of less than 1.8m, accessed via a permanently fixed staircase.

Installation Standards

All residual loft areas will be insulated to the same building regulations standards as standard loft insulation measures. At Eco-Home Network, we follow the best technical guidance from the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) for all room-in-roof installations.

Insulating all walls and ceilings between heated and unheated spaces is crucial for loft spaces used as living areas. Sloping ceilings, vertical walls, and flat ceilings can be insulated using specific methods, while dormer windows and skylights require high-performance glazing.
