100% funding* for Loft and Cavity Wall insulation

We can do the work through ECO, a government-backed grant scheme set up to improve the energy efficiency of the homes that need it most.

ECO grants (Energy Company Obligation grants) are funded by the big energy suppliers — British Gas, EDF Energy, E.ON, nPower, Scottish Power, SSE, First Utility, Ovo Energy and Co-Operative Energy.

Lower energy bills and a warmer home

ECO grants are there to help lower income households make energy efficiency improvements such as installing insulation or even replacing an old boiler.

The grants reduce household energy waste, warm up homes and cut UK carbon emissions.

If you’ve often turned off the heating to keep the bills down, an ECO grant could help. Contact us now to ask about a no-obligation home energy assessment.
