Park Home Grants- Are There Any Available?


Park Home Grants 

The long awaited grants for Park Homes are on the horizon as part of the Insulate Britain Scheme.

Thanks to Agility Eco  for this article.

High cost measures will need a contribution so the much desired EXTERNAL WALL INSULATION FOR PARK HOMES  will not be free!

Read the article yourself for full details. Insulate Britain Scheme.


Our Understanding Of The New Park Home Scheme 2023:

  • The Scheme Will Start Around Sept 2023
  • Park Home Grants Will Not Be FREE
  • Park Home Cladding will cost you up to £5000 contribution
  • There will NOT be any Heating Upgrades


Will Park Homes Grants Be Free?

Lots of people applying for park home grants and we get around 5-10 applications every week.

You will need to put your hand in your pocket as they wont be fully funded.

Reading the article and my  take on it is that it will not be fully funded and you should expect to pay at least a 50% ( and maybe more contribution ) towards it.

We do know that a lot of Park home residents are desperate for External Wall Insulation but dont want to pay anything.

External Wall Insulation will cost you around £7000 ( ball park figure ) for a park home and the government will not have the funding to give you a 100% grant .


Any money you can get off the government towards insulating your park home should be grabbed ASAP.


Government Grants For Mobile  Homes?

There has not been any grants for mobile homes for a few years now.

The last lot were for LPG boilers back in 2017.

Mobile Homes / Park homes in the UK can have some of the highest energy bills as they are usually very poorly insulated  and being off the gas grid are always heated by expensive fuels such as bottled gas or electricity.

Indeed many people report energy bills in excess of £300 per month.

Insulation and upgraded heating is a must for these types of homes and this blog is to inform you of what home improvement grants may be  available to park home occupants.

Grants For Energy Bills For Park Homes Can Be Found Here 


Why are Park homes so expensive to heat?

Park homes, especially older park homes, can be less energy efficient and a lot more poorly insulated than other types of properties.
This means that the  cost to maintain comfortable heating levels are very high.
Improving the insulation to your park home is recommended.

What Insulation Is Needed For Park Homes?

Insulation can be fitted to the external walls, roof or under the floor of your home.

Walls are usually insulated  by fixing insulated panels to the exterior of the home after which a layer of render and decorative coating is applied.

Another way of doing it is by using timber battens and insulation which is applied to the exterior and then overclad with new finishes.

Roof insulation:

Often carried out at the same time as the replacement of roof finishes, appropriately specified roof insulation will improve the energy performance of your home whilst ensuring the roof space is well ventilated (allowing air circulation and preventing condensation).

Underfloor insulation:

In most cases this will involve installing foil coated thermal insulation to the underside of the home.

Some systems apply spray foam directly to the underside of the floor, but this is likely to seal all the pipes and wiring, preventing any future access.

Do I need permission?

Fitting external wall insulation is likely to change the appearance of your property, and so you may need planning permission to do this.
Check with your local authority before going ahead.
You may also need permission from the park owner before installation, depending on your park home pitch agreement.

The Benefits Of Wall Insulation Cladding

  • Up to 65% savings on fuel
  • Eliminates condensation & mould growth
  • Even temperature throughout your home
  • Reduces inside summer temperatures
  • Reduces noise intrusion
  • Completely maintenance free
  • Enhance the value of your property
  • 25 year guarantee


Loft Insulation For Mobile Park Homes

Loft Insulation has been proven to save up to 20 percent on energy bills

Unlike traditional houses our unique loft insulation is installed from the outside meaning no disruption to the occupier and an instant impact on the reduction of heat loss through the roof of your park home.

As a third of the heat loss is through the floor of your property it is vital that your is insulated to a maximum.



Note: As part of the works to install wall insulation to your park home, the windows will need to be moved outwards to line through with the outer skin and re-sealed.

As a result, you may wish to consider replacing the windows at the same time as installing the insulation to ensure you get the best benefit from the works.

You can apply for an upgrade of existing single glazing or triple glazing but we do not anticipate any grant funding for this measure.
