What is the Warm Homes Scheme? 

The Warm Homes Scheme is funded by the Department for Social Development to make your home warmer, healthier and more energy-efficient.  The Warm Homes Scheme is for people who receive certain benefits (listed below) and own their home or rent it from a private landlord. 

Warm Homes Scheme Measures 

There are two levels of help available - Warm Homes and Warm Homes Plus.  Warm Homes- offers a range of insulation measures to householders on a qualifying benefit. Warm Homes Plus - offers insulation and heating measures to householders in receipt of a qualifying benefit (listed below) and who are identified through the assessment process to have Economy 7, Solid Fuel, bottled gas/LPG system or no system at all. 

Warm Homes:

Under Warm Homes, you may be able to receive the following help
  • Cavity Wall Insulation
  • Loft Insulation
  • Hot-water-tank jacket
  • Benefit Entitlement Check
  • Energy Advice 

Warm Homes Plus: 

As well as the improvements available under Warm Homes, householders who are in receipt of one of the benefits listed may also be eligible for:
  • Installation of a fully controlled energy-efficient oil or gas central heating system where no system currently exists.
  • Conversion of an existing bottled gas (LPG), solid fuel or Economy 7 heating system to oil or natural gas.
(If you live in an area where Natural Gas is available then that will be the fuel of choice.)
