Frequently Asked Question

The ECO4 grant can cover several thousands of pounds worth of energy-efficient installations in your home, depending on how many measures you qualify for. Key installations might include an air source heat pump, cavity wall insulation, loft insulation, and new heating systems like electric storage heaters.

The grant is designed so that eligible homeowners, particularly those who claim benefits, can access funding to improve their home’s energy efficiency without paying a penny.

It’s important to note that no cash alternative is available if you need help with gas and electric bills; the grant solely covers the cost of work and installed items. Eligibility criteria set by energy suppliers determine what improvements can be made to reduce energy costs effectively.

To claim your ECO4 grant, start by checking your eligibility with us. If you’re a homeowner or private tenant, you can access funding for energy efficiency measures through the ECO scheme if you claim benefits.

After confirming your eligibility, we’ll survey your home to identify which improvements, such as insulation or other measures, can help you use less energy.

Your energy provider or energy companies support these upgrades to reduce your energy consumption. We handle all the paperwork as well as the installations, making the process straightforward for you.

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO4) is a government energy-efficiency scheme in Great Britain, designed to tackle fuel poverty and help reduce carbon emissions. ECO is an obligation placed on energy companies to deliver energy efficiency measures to domestic premises. ECO is not a grant scheme; it is up to the energy companies to determine which retrofit projects they choose to fund, the level of funding they provide, and the Retrofit Coordinator and installers that they choose to work with.

ECO4 focusses on improving the least energy efficient homes and households in fuel poverty, as only properties in bands D-G can be treated. It also aims to deliver a more complete upgrade of those homes, shifting to a multi-measure whole-house retrofit approach. Furthermore, a minimum number of private tenure homes in energy efficiency rating band E, F and G must be upgraded throughout ECO4, ensuring the least efficient homes are treated.

There is a new Minimum Requirement (MR) to improve the energy efficiency rating of band D and E homes to at least a band C and band F and G homes to at least a band D. ECO4 aims to encourage the installation of various energy efficient measures such as insulation measures, first time central heating, renewable heating, and district heating connections.
