The scheme explained

The Staffordshire Warmer Homes Scheme is now live for properties in Staffordshire which are off gas or don’t use gas as their main heating source.


How is it funded

How our schemes are funded?

If you are eligible for help from us, you will not need to pay anything. We know it seems too good to be true, but our schemes are fully funded by organisations that want to help keep you warm at home. If you have a landlord, they may also be asked to contribute.

You can find a full list of our funding partners here.

What solutions are available?


Air Source Heat Pumps

The pump pulls in air from outside, then uses it to heat a special refrigerant liquid. As it warms up, the liquid turns into gas.

This gas is compressed to increase its temperature – and provide lots of lovely heat for your home.

Will include smart heating controls for you to easily control the temperature in each room.


Loft Insulation

A material that is placed between the roof and the ceiling of your house to stop heat from escaping.


 External Wall Insulation

Two layers of material are used - one to offer insulation, and an outer layer of mineral or synthetic render to protect against weather and provide a decorative finish. 


Cavity Wall Insulation

Insulation materials are inserted in the gaps between the two sets of thin walls on the outside of a house.


Solar PV

More commonly known as Solar panels. The panels convert energy from the sun into electricity to be stored and used.


Under floor insulation

Under Floor Insulation (UFI) is when a layer of insulated material is installed under the floorboards but above either concentrate or timber wood.

ECO4 Funding

Energy Company Obligation (ECO)

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is a government energy efficiency scheme in Great Britain to help reduce carbon emissions to tackle fuel poverty.

Through the ECO4 scheme, if your home is off-gas you could receive energy efficiency upgrades such as:
insulation, solar panels, an air source heat pump and heating systems. If your home is on-gas you could receive insulation and boiler upgrades.

You could be eligible if you have a gross annual household income below £31,000 or have someone in the household with a means tested benefit or long-term illness such as: cardiovascular problems, respiratory issues, limited mobility or weakened immune system.  

GBIS Funding

Great British Insulation Scheme (GBIS)

The Great British Insulation Scheme is a new government energy efficiency scheme. It is designed to deliver insulation improvements to the least energy-efficient homes in Great Britain, to tackle fuel poverty and help reduce energy bills.

Did you know that 25% of heat is lost through an uninsulated loft and 35% through uninsulated walls? Insulation is a great way to reduce your energy bills and make your home warmer.

Through the GBIS scheme you can receive either loft insulation or cavity wall insulation free of charge. You qualify if you live in council tax band A-D.


Community Home Solutions is one of the providers of measures locally for both ECO4 and GBIS. If you are not eligible to receive help through the Home Upgrade Grant, Community Home Solutions will be able to advise if you are eligible for either ECO4 or GBIS. If you are unsure, please apply!
