Our approved partner will capture key information about your home, such as the size of your property, building type and insulation levels to calculate its energy-efficiency and to recommend improvements that could be made. Our partner will also capture evidence that you are in receipt of a qualifying benefit and in private tenure. If you are able to provide the required documentation and an available energy saving home improvement is recommended, a Technical Survey will be carried out.
The Home Energy Assessment is without obligation. You will not incur any cost should you choose not to go ahead with the installation.
Our partner will calculate the cost of the works and check that your home is suitable for installation, occasionally we will be unable to carry out the works in your home due to restrictions or technical issues.
The results of the Home Energy Assessment and Technical Survey will then be reviewed and our partner will calculate how much funding is available.
The Technical Survey is without obligation, you will not incur any cost should you choose not to go ahead with the installation.
