Double Glazing Grants

Welcome to, part of the EnergyLink group of web sites. Grants for double glazing are not available to the majority of UK households. Some Local Authorities operate schemes for those with low incomes and window scrappage schemes have been talked about in the press. The only option available to all home owners at present is to organise several quotations through a company such as EnergyLink Ltd. This site explains the available options in more detail and provides you with the opportunity to arrange your quotes for windows, doors and conservatories.

Are Grants Available For Double Glazing?

crossSome local councils offer grants for Double Glazing but they are typically means-tested. It will be necessary to demonstrate that you live in a low-income household and you may be required to prove that you are in receipt of certain benefits, tax credits or allowances. In some cases you might also have to be above a certain age. If your local council do offer double glazing grants, it is highly likely that there will be a long waiting list.

  • Means tested.
  • Low income / receiving benefits.
  • Could be a minimum age.
  • Very long waiting lists.
Local Authority contact details can be found on the following web site:

Is There A Window Scrappage Scheme?

crossThere has been talk of the UK Government introducing a Window Scrappage Scheme. However, nothing has been confirmed or announced in recent months. A Boiler Scrappage Scheme was launched by the Energy Saving Trust on 5th January 2010 who offered a £400 voucher towards the cost of a new boiler. The scheme proved to be hugely popular with all vouchers being allocated within three months. A window scrappage scheme would most likely operate in a similar way. There are several double glazing companies offering 'window scrappage schemes' but they are simply a marketing tactic to attract customers.
They are not official, government-backed schemes.

  • No official Window Scrappage Schemes exist.
  • Double Glazing companies offer own schemes.
  • May never be introduced in the UK.
The Glass & Glazing Federation petitioned the Government to offer a cash incentive of £1,000 towards the installation of Energy Efficient windows. This petition, which ended on 24th March 2010 contains 4,467 signatures, including representatives of EnergyLink.

Are There Any Other Discounts?
