The government and energy suppliers can offer help with insulating your home and other energy-saving improvements
Affordable Warmth obligation
You may qualify for a new boiler, loft insulation or cavity wall insulation through energy suppliers' Affordable Warmth obligations.
The scheme is provided by energy suppliers for homeowners and private tenants who claim certain benefits.
You can apply to any energy supplier's scheme, even if you don't get your gas or electricity from them.
Council or housing association tenants aren't eligible for help under this scheme.
Find out more from Gov.uk about the Affordable Warmth Obligation.
You may qualify for the feed-in tariff if you generate any of your own energy.
This means your energy provider pays you for any power you generate and allows you to sell surplus power back to the grid.
Changes to the feed-in tariff in February 2016 might mean you receive less for the energy you produce.
