Adding Smart Heating Controls to your home will help you manage your heat more effectively, save you money and make your home more energy efficient.
If you’re a homeowner or residential landlord you can now apply for a £5000 Green Homes Grant voucher (up to £10,000 for low income households) towards the cost of installing energy efficient improvements to your home including heating controls such as Inspire Home Automation’s Ignite Smart Thermostats.
You can apply directly for the grant, but it needs to be performed by an accredited installer.
The voucher must be used to install at least 1 primary measure. This can be an insulation measure and/or a low carbon heating measure.
Insulation measures covered by the voucher
- solid wall insulation (internal or external)
- cavity wall insulation
- under-floor insulation (solid floor, suspended floor)
- loft insulation
- flat roof insulation
- pitched roof insulation
- room in roof insulation
- insulating a park home
Low carbon heating measures covered by the voucher:
- air source heat pump
- ground source heat pump
- solar thermal (liquid filled flat plate or evacuated tube collector)
- biomass boiler
- hybrid heat pump
If you install at least 1 primary measure, your voucher can then be used to help cover the cost of a secondary measure which includes heating controls.
An Inspire Home Automation Ignite Thermostat has geofencing enabled. This turns down your heating when your home is empty but then starts turning up the heat when you’re coming home. Our fully customisable system enables you to create 4 different programs for the time of year and set up schedules to suit, daily, weekdays/weekends or a different temperature setting for each day of the week.
