The vouchers will also cover some supplementary costs. These include professional services (such as structural engineer costs), contractor costs (such as waste removal and scaffolding) and associated work, such as improving ventilation and changes to pipework and radiators.
Check out the full list of supplementary costs.
There may be cases (for example, with low carbon heating) where the voucher doesn’t cover the whole cost. In some cases, it will be possible to combine the voucher with another scheme to promote low carbon heating, the Renewable Heat Incentive.
To do this, you will need to apply for the Green Homes Grant voucher first and use this to install a heat pump, for example. Once the measure is in place and the voucher redeemed, you can apply to the Renewable Heat Incentive.
If you are eligible, this will provide you with quarterly payments minus the amount you received from the Green Homes Grant. Find out more about combining the two schemes.
