Our dedicated team here at UKEM will take care of everything else for you: from checking your eligibility to enrolling you in the scheme, to ensuring all your energy-efficient home improvements are carried out by qualified tradespeople and installers.

Understanding ECO4 Funding: How is the government-backed ECO4 scheme achieving this, and do I qualify?

The ECO4 Funding scheme represents a pivotal advancement in the UK’s commitment to energy efficiency and reducing household carbon footprints. This initiative, designed to support low-income households, offers a unique opportunity to upgrade home energy systems without the financial burden. In short, ECO4 funding covers the cost of making your home more energy efficient.

The grant is targeted at properties that fall within efficiency bands E, F, and G and can be used to install or upgrade cavity wall insulation, central heating improvements, and loft insulation.

The ECO4 scheme provides all of this FREE of charge, but that isn’t the only benefit. With huge amounts of energy lost through poor insulation, using this government initiative to upgrade your home will save you money on bills month after month. However, all you need to do to find out if you qualify is complete a free eligibility check.


So, where does UKEM
feature in all of this?

We’re the ones who can get you started on your ECO4 grant journey AND see it through to completion right by your side. We will manage your journey from start to finish, working to provide the best options of funding available to create a more comfortable, energy-efficient home for you and your family.

Okay, so what’s the catch?

At first glance, this may sound a little too good to be true, but there really is no catch. Provided your circumstances align with the government’s criteria, the ECO4 grant will be accessible to you.

If you are a homeowner or private tenant and receive any of the qualifying benefits listed below, you are likely to be eligible for the ECO4 grant.
