We have received many questions asking about the Green Homes Grant for Conservatory Roofing. As it currently stands, we have very little information from the Government as to which energy-saving products will be eligible for the voucher, but have tried to summarise the limited information we do have on this page.
The Green Homes Grant is a scheme by the UK Government for residents of England (the grant does not apply in Scotland, Wales or Ireland). The scheme offers ‘grants’ on home improvement projects that include energy-saving features. The scheme launches on September 1st and applications can be made online at this point.
The ‘grants’ will come in the form of vouchers worth up to £10,000. Full details on eligibility have not been released yet, but it seems that the vouchers fall into two categories:
The Government have yet to release a comprehensive list of home-improvement projects that will be eligible for the grant, but so far have confirmed the following:
Assessing the Green Homes Grant for Conservatory Roof eligibility is where the waters are slightly muddy. Generally, conservatories that are separate from the house are not included in the EPC rating of the property. A conservatory is ‘separate from the house’ if there is a dividing wall and door between the conservatory and main property.
Although nothing has been confirmed, we would imagine that as the EPC rating of a property is a measurable indicator of energy efficiency, any home-improvement eligible for the scheme would have to improve the EPC of the property, to show a measurable difference. If this is the case, it is very unlikely that conservatory roof insulation will be included in the scheme. We are currently trying to find out more information and await a comprehensive list of projects that qualify – this page will be updated as soon as we know more details.
The good news is – although conservatory roofing is unlikely to qualify for the scheme, with vouchers now being offered for a range of other energy-efficient home improvement measures, now might be the perfect time to invest in the whole property and put the money you have saved on these other improvements into transforming your conservatory.
Green Space UK offer a completely unique conservatory roof panel replacement. Our insulated, aluminium panels are manufactured like-for-like to fit into your existing roofing framework and installed in less-than-a-day. The insulation inside of the panels give you a cooler conservatory in the summer and a warmer conservatory in the winter, and the gloss on the underside of the panels reflect the abundance of natural daylight coming in from the outer windows, so your conservatory is still the lightest, brightest room in the house.
