Free home improvements to help you save energy

Reading Borough Council has secured funding from central government to help local residents on a low income make their homes warmer and help reduce their heating bills. The funding available will provide a range of energy efficiency improvements that can be retrofitted to your home.

The good news is that if you are a home-owner you don’t have to pay for this and you will not be asked for any financial contribution towards the scheme or to pay any of the money spent back.  You will not be asked to provide any bank account details when applying.

If you are a private landlord you are also eligible for the scheme, however you will be required to contribute one third towards the cost of the work.

What improvements could you receive for free?

  • Insulation and ventilation upgrades
  • Improved heating controls
  • Solar PV
  • Energy efficient lighting

More details can be found here.
