What Energy Measures are available under ECO?
ECO was designed to help make saving energy more affordable for domestic properties under areas that need them the most. Large energy companies have a legal obligation to provide ECO support. This means that suppliers such as British Gas, EDF Energy, Eon and Scottish Power must provide funding for low income families that live in the country’s fuel poorest areas to help them save money by heating and insulating their homes more efficiently.
Boiler Replacements (Including First Time Central Heating Systems).
Under the ECO Affordable Warmth Scheme, funding is available to cover the full cost of a boiler replacement as well as a free survey to establish whether you qualify.
To benefit from a new, more energy efficient boiler, you must receive the qualifying benefits or be approved via the Local Authority Scheme (LA FLEX).
Cavity Wall Insulation
Cavity Wall Insulation can be provided free of charge if you qualify for the Government’s Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme.
With about a third of heat lost in an uninsulated home escaping through the walls, Cavity Wall Insulation is a quick and easy way to start saving money on your energy bills.
Loft Insulation is usually the quickest form of insulation and is quite easy to install with little to no disruption.
Coupled with a new and more energy efficient boiler, you can save money off your heating bill whilst making your home more comfortable.
