What is the Government’s FREE energy improvement scheme all about?
Launched in 2013 by the Government, the Energy Company Obligation fund is now in its fourth stage of investment, ECO4, having already delivered 3.1 million improvements to UK homes. This a key element of the Government’s Sustainable Warmth Strategy to deliver its goal to achieve net zero by 2050. ECO4 is set up to allow low-income households, as well as households who receive certain state benefits, the opportunity to receive free heating upgrades. You may also be entitled to free home improvements such as loft and cavity insulation as well as Solar Panel installation.
ECO4 aims to improve your home’s energy efficiency, reducing your family’s energy bills. A home’s energy is measured by its Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). ECO4 aims to improve inefficient homes to make them more effective – homes with EPC’s of F & G need to improve to an E rating while homes with an E rating need to become C-rated.

Families in UK Living with the Cost-of-Living Crisis
Energy bills rose 66.7% in the 12 months to March 2023. This unprecedented rise in heating bills impacts those families with the lowest incomes more than any others. Coupled with the rising energy prices is the fact that many homes are poorly insulated, both in lofts and cavities, with old, inefficient boilers. Poor insulation and old boilers mean families are living in poor quality housing. Many families in the UK are being forced to live in damp, cold conditions, or face the threat of financially crippling energy bills.
