Our Services

We install a range of modern and efficient heating systems, insulation and renewable energy solutions via ECO and other funding schemes. We provide comprehensive advice on grants and funding mechanisms, including Feed in Tariffs (FiT), the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) and the Energy Company Obligation (ECO).

Heating Systems

We install a range of modern and efficient heating systems including gas, LPG and oil boilers, in addition to modern electric storage heaters. All of these solutions are eligible for grant funding and financing through the UK Government’s Energy Company Obligation.

Insulation

Additional insulation is often the most cost-effective way to reduce a home’s energy bills. We provide insulation for cavity walls, solid walls, “room in a roof” spaces and lofts, in addition to underfloor insulation. All of these solutions are eligible for grant funding. 

Renewable Energy

We supply and install the following renewable energy systems: photovoltaic (PV) installations, Solar thermal panel, air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps.

What our customers say

Steve, Buckinghamshire

"I can't tell you how happy I am as a result of a central heating system fully installed and working.

I am as happy as I was miserable, and no words can explain my gratitude. A massive thank you to everyone who has had a hand in making it possible."

Sally, Oxfordshire

"Excellent communication with Carbon Rewind. You have kept me informed every step of the way and been easy to contact if I had a query. Fast, efficient and friendly service. Quiet and energy efficient boiler.

Thank you once again for your help and have a great Xmas – thanks to you, mine will be warm and cozy."

Sakma, Harrow

"I am so happy with the service everyone at Carbon Rewind have given us. From the first phone call to install it only took a week. Having a warm home for your family is something we take for granted but when you have been sitting in the cold, winter after winter you realise just how big a blessing it is. Words cannot express my gratitude."

FAQ

At Carbon Rewind, it is our goal to make the process of getting a new heating system, insulation measure, or renewable energy system smooth and simple. Here are a few of the most common questions we get asked, but feel free to reach out below if you have another question.

What is ECO?

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is an energy efficiency scheme  for the UK sponsored by the government and energy companies designed to help reduce carbon emissions and tackle fuel poverty. What it means for you is that if you are a member of your household are on the qualifying benefits, you can save massively on new heating systems or insulation measures, paid for by the energy companies.

What types of boiler do you install?

We primarily install two types of boiler – Ideal Logic and Worcester Bosch 2000. If however, there is a specific boiler you want installed, we can arrange that at an additional cost.

How long will the work take?

The time it takes to install your new heating system or insulation varies according to which measure you are having installed. After the survey and other preliminary stages have been conducted, you can expect roughly the following for the different measures we install (but it may vary case by case):

 

  • Loft Insulation: 2-3 hours.
  • Underfloor insulation: 1-3 hours depending on the size of  the property and area being insulated.
  • Cavity Wall Insulation: typically 2-4 hours.
  • Room in Roof Insulation: 2-4 days. 
  • New heating system/boiler: half a day to a full day.
  • First time central heating: 1-3 days depending on the size of the property.
  • External Wall insulation: it depends on the weather conditions but can take around 1 to 3 weeks.
Is it truly free?

For most measures, the work will be completely free, if you or a member of your household are on the qualifying benefits (see the list above). For some measures, a contribution may be required under certain circumstances. Speak to us to find out more.

How can I find out if my house is suitable?

Our surveyors will appraise the property and check your property’s current heating and insulation arrangements. 

If you are keen to learn more about your property before our surveyors conduct their survey you can check if your house has solid or cavity walls by checking the brick pattern to determine if cavity wall insulation may be appropriate. Bricks laid end to end with only the long face of the brick showing indicates that the property is of cavity wall construction. Additionally you can measure the wall thickness when opening your front door or any window. If the wall thickness is 280mm or above then this is also an indication that a cavity wall is present.

For heating systems, your boiler must be more than 7 years old to qualify for an ECO grant replacement.

Why should I get a new heating system or new insulation?

A new heating system or insulation solution can help you drastically save on fuel bills, reduce your energy consumption, and help to address climate change at the same time. You’ll also feel the benefits of a warmer home.

What is the process for getting new insulation installed?

The rough process for new insulation consists of the following stages but will vary based on whether you are getting loft insulation, cavity wall insulation, underfloor insulation or room in roof insulation. For those receiving  multiple measures, the insulation needs to be done before the boiler is installed.

  1. Survey
  2. Survey Review 
  3. Ventilation (If required)
  4. Installation of insulation
  5. Guarantee of insulation 
What type of eligibility documents might I need?

 We conduct a data match for those receiving benefits, for which we will need the recipient’s date of birth. If we can’t match it, we will need a letter to the benefit recipient as evidence they are in receipt. Speak to us if you have further questions.
