All Posts

Updated: Feb 21, 2023

Your home should be energy efficient with solutions that keep your property feeling comfortable and safe. However, for low income and vulnerable households, making the necessary heating upgrades is not always possible financially but you could be eligible for government funding through the ECO 3 scheme.

Here’s how the energy company obligation can work for you.

What is the ECO 3 scheme?

ECO 3 is the government’s umbrella term for its programme to make houses in the UK more energy efficient. The current scheme that launched in 2018 and continues to run until 2022, is focused solely on targeting energy efficiency measures in lower-income and more vulnerable households. The scheme works

with medium and larger energy suppliers who will fund the installation of energy-efficient upgrades including up to 35,000 broken heating systems per year.

What kind of heating upgrades can you receive?

An accredited team like UK Energy Management (NE) Ltd will assess your home to find the best solution for your heating needs. The types of ECO 3 upgrades available include:

● Gas boiler, LPG boiler and electric heating replacement

● Cavity wall insulation

● Under floor insulation

● Loft insulation

● Solid wall insulation

There are a range of options to suit all homes and requirements so you can make your property energy efficient.

Why is heating funding beneficial?

Everybody deserves an efficient heating system but if you are in need of an upgrade and need extra support covering the costs, the ECO 3 scheme is in place to help.

The ECO 3 scheme can benefit you in the following ways:

● You can receive a free boiler or heating upgrade with no contribution.

● Your home will become more energy efficient compared to living with old or faulty installations.

● Your property will be warmer and safer especially for households with vulnerable residents.

● Energy bills can become more affordable across the year.

● Efficient heating installations will benefit you for years to come.

If you require a heating upgrade, the energy company obligation is in place to help people save money by reducing energy bills, keeping homes warm and reducing carbon emissions. Find out if you’re eligible today and experience the range of benefits of energy-efficient heating.

Due to the EPC rating of your property, your home's rating is unlikely to be improved by the measures we install. We are sorry that we cannot help you further in this instance.
The lower your home's energy efficiency rating, the more money the government make available for you to improve it.
