Wished you could reduce your heating bills?
Wished you could stop worrying about how much your fuel bills will be for the Winter ahead?

ALL That Can Change Today & We Can Help You

The National Retrofit Scheme is a government grant scheme designed to upgrade 5,000 homes per year towards achieving their climate action plan targets. The objective of the scheme is to upgrade groups of homes under this scheme in accordance with Part L of the Building Regulations 2019.

This ensures when a major renovation is completed, a minimum of B2 BER rating is achieved, with up to 35% funding towards the completion of approved measures. * (First come, first allocated basis, so make sure you find out if you qualify as soon as possible) *

This scheme is to facilitate high standards of energy efficiency, the use of renewable energy sources and to deliver this scheme in a group approach to facilitate energy improvements in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
