Warm Up Wight
Energy efficiency measures for the residents of the Isle of Wight.
Our efficiency scheme
Warm Up Wight is an Energy Company Obligation (ECO) funded scheme which offers free insulation and in some cases heating improvements to qualifying households on the Isle of Wight.
The scheme is being delivered by J & J Crump & Son and is supported by the Isle of Wight council and will provide insulation and heating improvements to residential properties across the Island that meet the required criteria.
The qualification criteria have been widened so that homes on low incomes with high heating costs, that are not in receipt of benefits, will be able to access the funding.
The scheme is currently offering free cavity wall insulation for all properties.
Free loft insulation will be undertaken where possible and as required following a check of the property’s Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). Low-income households may be entitled to free or significantly reduced cost replacement boiler system.
Each property’s Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) will be checked, upon request for home insulation improvement, to identify appropriate insulation and heating improvements that could be made.
The qualification criteria has been widened and many more people could benefit from FREE measures
- Homes with a low household income after housing costs AND
- Homes with EPC rating of D, E,F or G
Councillor Paul Fuller, Executive member for environment (sustainability), said:
“J&J Crump came to us with the proposal to deliver the scheme on the Island. They came with good references having successfully undertaken such schemes elsewhere in the country already, so we were happy to approve their request using our Code of Conduct for energy efficiency schemes.”
‘’Warm Up Wight clearly demonstrates benefits to local residents, as well as the local economy through local job creation, and the company have proven high levels of customer care.”
