The government has pledged to make homes in the UK more energy efficient and lower the carbon footprint of the UK.
Funded by gas and electricity suppliers - including British Gas, EDF Energy, Eon, Npower, Scottish Power, and SSE.
The energy suppliers are obliged to help households with energy-efficiency measures which for the energy consumer, means lower energy bills and warmer homes.
Each obligated supplier must contribute to a certain amount of energy-efficient home improvements, based on its market share.
ECO 4 will run from 2022-2026 costing £4 billion and the Government must meet the target to have all homes in the UK up to an EPC band of D (2025).
Eligible customers receive a package of Free Energy-Saving Measures and Heating Improvements
Helping to keep your home warm & significantly reduce your energy and fuel bills
Householders living in properties that currently have a low EPC rating of D or below can benefit from the scheme

Electric Storage Heaters
If you use standard electric heaters or fan heaters to heat your home, then you should apply for this free grant.
Replace your expensive electric heating with FREE High Heat Retention Electric Storage Heaters that are fully programmable. The new heaters charge overnight using low-cost off-peak electricity.
To take advantage of the free electric storage heaters you must have existing electric heating and be in receipt of a qualifying benefit. Electric heating is insufficient and can be very expensive to heat your home.
Your electricity tariff must be Economy 7, cheap night time electricity to store heat and then release it to warm your home during the day time when electricity is more expensive.
High Heat Retention Electric Storage Heaters are designed to convert off-peak electricity into thermal energy, store it, and then release it continuously throughout the day.
First Time Central Heating
First-time central heating installations are now available under the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme.
If you are a homeowner or private tenant and do not have a central heating system, you may be eligible for a free grant towards a new First-Time Central Heating System.
To qualify for the First Time Central Heating Grant, you must never have had a gas boiler and radiators installed before. You must also be on one of the qualifying benefits or live within the LA Flex councils.
There are many properties with currently run-on electric heating and electric water heaters. The electric systems are extremely expensive to run.
You could have a ‘A’ Rated Energy Efficient Gas Boiler and Radiators installed in your home for FREE.
Subject to a free property assessment.
Internal & External Wall Insulation
Under the ECO Scheme the complete cost of the insulation will be covered in the grant.
By insulating the external or internal walls of your property, you could prevent up to 40% of your home’s heat loss and save up to £350 per year in energy bills according to the Energy Saving Trust.
The external or internal wall insulation can also transform the look of an old and tired-looking wall adding value to your home.
Absence of insulation will continue to give you considerably higher energy bills plus a greater risk of damp and mold.
Room In Roof Insulation
The grants available cover the entire cost of having the loft or attic rooms insulated.
Room in roof insulation is used to insulate a loft that has been converted into a room. This replaces the standard loft insulation normally seen in the joists of an unconverted space.
An estimated 25% of heat is lost through a roof that is not insulated, therefore room in roof insulation is essential to reduce bills.
Uninsulated loft rooms can lose up to 25% heat that is generated in your home.
Insulating the walls and ceiling of the loft room could save you up to £150 per year on your heating bills according to the energy saving trust.
