Affordable Warmth and the ECO Scheme
ECO4 (Energy Company Obligation) is a government energy efficiency scheme that aims to reduce carbon emissions and tackle fuel poverty.
The scheme obliges energy suppliers to promote measures that help low income, fuel poor and vulnerable households to heat their homes, and with our with our Trustmark-approved experts, we can help you get started — free of charge!
Electric Storage Heater Grants
Replacement electric storage heaters are available via the ECO4 scheme in the form of a non-repayable grant that could cover up to 100% of the costs.
If you meet the benefits related criteria, and your home is currently heated by an electric storage heater system, you could qualify. It’s as simple as that!
Air-Source Heat Pumps
If your home has NEVER had a central heating system fitted before, as a homeowner or private tenant, you can apply for a grant to install an air-source heat pump. This part of ECO4 is called the ‘First Time Central Heating Grants Scheme’.
Here are some examples of heating systems that qualify for an upgrade:
- Electric or inefficient storage heaters
- Gas room heaters (including fixed mains gas types)
- Gas or fossil fuel fires with back boilers
- Mains gas warm air heating
- Electric underfloor or ceiling heating
- Bottled LPG room heating
- Solid fossil fuel room heaters
- Wood/biomass or oil room heaters
If your home has central heating and a boiler installed, you may still be eligible for a grant under the Boiler Upgrade Scheme.
