If your home has an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of D or below, you might be suitable for one of the government schemes.
What schemes are available?
The ECO4 scheme can help with home improvement measures ranging from loft and wall insulation to air source heat pumps.
To qualify, you’ll need to be a homeowner claiming one of the benefits listed below. Your home will also need an EPC rating of D or lower.
- Pension Guarantee Credit
- Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)

2) Great British Insulation Scheme
The Great British Insulation Scheme can provide funding for a single insulation measure, mostly likely cavity wall insulation. Other types of insulation are also possible, but you might need to contribute towards the cost.
To qualify, you’ll need a home with an EPC rating of D or lower. You’ll also need to be in one of the council tax bands listed below.
- Council tax bands A-D in England
- Council tax bands A-E in Scotland and Wales
If you also qualify for ECO4, don’t worry about deciding which to sign up for. One of the assessors we partner with will give you advice about which scheme is best for you.
Due to significant interest in the GBIS scheme, once you have registered your interest, you may be placed on a waiting list to be contacted by one of our partners in the Autumn.
