Help available to make your home more energy efficient through upgrades to insulation, heating systems, controls and other home improvements.
An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is valid for 10 years and provides a list of recommended measures to improve energy efficiency based on the the circumstances at the time of the assessment. You don't necessarily need to already have an EPC to access support, however it may help guide which measures are worth pursuing.
Grants are available via larger energy suppliers and installers working on their behalf for a range of insulation measures and support to upgrade or replace inefficient or broken heating including gas, LPG and oil boilers and electric storage heaters.
Some measures require a household contribution and the measures available from providers may vary.
ECO grants are primarily directed at homeowners, with more limited measures available to private rental and housing association properties dependent on Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating.
Eligible households must be in receipt of qualifying benefits, or on a low income and qualify via Local Authority Flexible Eligibility which takes into account household circumstances and property characteristics.
Our Warm Homes service can signpost residents on a low income to access local offers available via District and Borough Councils, the Lightbulb Housing Service or other third-party charitable organisations.
