What is the ECO4 Funding Scheme?

The ECO4 program, part of the UK government’s Energy Company Obligation (ECO) initiative, provides financial grants to low-income households for energy-saving upgrades like insulation and heating. Launched in April 2022 and running until March 2026, it targets carbon emission reduction and fuel poverty. Services, including boiler replacements and insulation grants, are tailored to the property’s EPC rating, beginning with a complimentary energy assessment. Explore our offerings for efficient heating solutions.

Free Boiler Grant

UK Eco Solutions offers homeowners, private tenants, and pensioners receiving UK Government benefits the opportunity to replace their old and inefficient boilers under the ECO4 Scheme. The scheme aims to enhance household energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions by offering free boiler grants to households with boilers older than 2005 and an EPC rating of D or below. Once qualified, our approved boiler installers conduct a survey and, if positive, proceed to install a new boiler at your property, providing cost savings and environmental benefits.

To qualify for a Free Boiler Grant, recipients must receive income-related government benefits, and their gas boilers should be manufactured before 2005. The eligibility criteria also consider the property’s EPC rating, prioritising homes with ratings below D for the grant. The initiative alleviates financial burdens associated with boiler upgrades and fosters energy efficiency, reducing fuel poverty and carbon emissions, aligning with broader environmental goals.

The primary objective of the ECO4 initiative is to assist low-income households in enhancing their heating systems, promoting energy efficiency, reducing energy expenses, and addressing fuel poverty. Eligibility criteria include the boiler’s manufacture date, connection to the main gas supply, and an EPC rating of D or below. Homes with higher EPC ratings, off-gas properties, and households not receiving qualifying benefits are excluded from the Free Boiler Grant scheme. An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) assesses a property’s energy efficiency, with lower ratings indicating higher energy wastage and qualifying for the grant.

The Air Source Heat Pump Grant

Upgrade your home’s heating with UK Eco Solutions and secure a free grant under the ECO4 Scheme! We’re dedicated to providing sustainable heating solutions that cut energy costs and warm your home efficiently. Air source heat pumps play a pivotal role in achieving the UK’s climate targets by reducing carbon emissions from building heating. Through the ECO4 scheme, you can access up to £7,500 towards your new heat pump, making it an affordable and eco-conscious choice.

How does an air source heat pump work? These systems extract heat from outside air through a refrigeration cycle, even in temperatures as low as -20 Celsius. The absorbed heat is then compressed and released indoors, providing efficient heating or hot water. The ECO4 Grant facilitates the installation of air source heat pumps, aiming to reduce household carbon emissions and alleviate fuel poverty across the UK. With grants available until March 2026, homeowners and tenants can benefit from improved energy efficiency and lower heating costs.

Air source heat pumps offer numerous benefits, including significant energy savings and reduced carbon footprint. They provide year-round comfort by offering both heating and cooling capabilities, improving air quality, and increasing home value. With minimal maintenance and a lifespan of up to 20 years, air source heat pumps offer a sustainable solution to heating and cooling needs.
