The HHCRO scheme (Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation) (also known as the Affordable Warmth scheme) is a new grant scheme aimed at giving the most vulnerable households access to free loft and cavity wall insulation as well as boiler repairs and replacements. The scheme is a part of the ECO, the grant scheme running alongside the Green Deal. It replaces the CERT and Warm Front schemes which funded similar measures, and like these schemes is funded by the UK’s energy suppliers.
The HHCRO scheme is open to anyone who owns their own home or who rents from a private landlord. You also need to meet other criteria to do with the benefits you receive. You can check whether you’re eligible and apply for free loft and cavity wall insulation through the scheme by taking a look at our HHCRO Free Insulation page.
