Why are Insulation Grants Available?

Insulation grants are currently available through the Energy Company Obligation (ECO3) scheme.

This is a government funded scheme to help tackle fuel poverty across the UK which is funded by the largest utility companies in the UK. 

Grants to upgrade old heating are available too as part of the scheme.

Is Free Insulation Available To all Homes In The UK?

Free insulation grants available through the ECO 3 scheme were created to help low income households in England, Scotland and Wales make their homes more energy efficient and lower their ever increasing heating bills.

Not every household can apply and there are certain criteria that have to be met to qualify for the scheme.

Eligible households can then apply for an insulation grant and upon successful completion a registered insulation installer will install the insulation of your property.

This is a non repayable grant so it does not have to be repaid at any time in the future. A 25 year full warranty is also included.

The ECO scheme offers grants available for a number of different types of home insulation and applicants can be eligible for more than one grant.

Are All Insulation Grants Free?

You may be offered enough to fund 100% of the cost of the installation for the loft & cavity wall insulation and room in roof insulation but solid wall & internal wall will need a contribution

Under the ECO scheme the ‘Big Six’ utility companies are obliged to provide funding to households that have to improve the efficiency of their homes. This is in part to achieve the government’s goal of being net carbon neutral by 2050 but as a main aim of tackling fuel poverty across the UK.
