  • Up to £1,000 for installing two measures from an approved list (this includes: floor, roof and cavity wall insulation, double glazing and replacement doors); and/or
  • Up to £6,000 for installing solid wall insulation; and

Those who have bought a property in the 12 months prior to applying for the GDHIF scheme could qualify for a further £500 when they carry out energy efficiency improvements.
