What is solid wall insulation?

The most recent iteration of the Energy Company Obligation, known as the ECO4 Scheme, offers grants to help Scottish homeowners, landlords, and tenants improve the energy efficiency of their properties. Internal solid wall insulation is the cornerstone of this scheme, aiming to reduce
heating costs and carbon footprints by insulating homes that aren’t suitable for cavity wall insulation.

The image below illustrates how internal wall insulation works. Insulating material (usually compressed mineral wool or rigid insulation board) is placed on the surface of any exterior walls. The insulation is kept in place by attaching a framework made of thermally efficient material.

Once the insulation is fitted, the wall is then replastered and skimmed. This provides a neat and tidy finish, with your room ready to be decorated to your own specifications. All trim, such as light switches, sockets, and skirting, is removed and replaced where possible. If this is not viable, then new skirting, etc. will be provided. All of the work is covered by an ECO4 wall grant.

Is my home suitable for internal wall insulation?

If your house was built after the 1920s, there is a good chance that it has a double layer of bricks with a cavity or space in between. Properties in Scotland that were constructed before this period were built using solid brick or traditional stone.

This type of building does not have a gap in the exterior walls that can be filled with insulating material. Therefore, any outer walls need to be insulated, either externally or internally. The ECO4 scheme provides 100% grant funding to cover the cost of internal solid wall insulation.

What is the ECO4 Grant Scheme?

The Energy Company Obligation 4 is a government-approved scheme that helps households deemed to live in fuel poverty improve the energy efficiency of their homes. The major utility companies are funding the scheme, and eligible households in Scotland can claim non-repayable grants for energy-saving measures, including:

All measures installed under the ECO scheme are free. By making your home more energy efficient, you can see a substantial reduction in electricity and heating bills. In addition, your home generates less carbon emissions, so it will be more environmentally friendly.
