ECO For Social Housing
As a supplier of energy saving measures, we can help improve the energy efficiency of your housing stock and reduce the householder’s energy bills by up to £300 per year.
The government has allocated 25% of the ECO funding to Social Housing and pledged to make homes in the UK more energy efficient, whilst lowering the carbon footprint of the UK.
The scheme is backed by the Government and funded by gas and electricity suppliers. The energy suppliers are obliged to help households with energy-efficiency measures which aid in lowering energy bills up to £300 per year, making homes warmer, increasing the energy efficiency (EPC) and lower carbon emissions.
Social Housing properties with EPC ratings of E, F or G can qualify for ECO funding regardless of the resident’s benefits eligibility. The measures available, however, they are limited to loft and cavity wall insulation and first-time central heating systems.
More heat is lost through the walls than any other route. Around 35% in a home without insulation. Heat lost through poorly or uninsulated lofts amount's to approximately 25%.
Cavity wall insulation is the single most cost-effective, low-risk energy efficiency measure available for the existing housing stock, after loft insulation. It can be installed without major disruption to occupants and it needs no maintenance.

A House That Stays Warmer Longer
A Cooler House In Summer
The insulation is regulated by Ofgem and as a qualifying party, under the ECO guidelines, there will be no charge for the work to either yourself, your landlords or your Tenants, this, in turn, will Reduce Condensation, Reduce Mould & the Heat Lost as well as providing a saving of up to £300 per year on an average fuel bill.
All materials used are totally dry, natural, ozone friendly, water repellent, fire resistant and assessed & approved by the BBA British Board of Agreement. Each Cavity Wall insulation is issued with a 25 years CIGA guarantee.
As well as the above, the installation would improve the current EPC rating.
