ECO home improvements. Want to reduce your energy bills? You may qualify for the ECO scheme
The ECO scheme is changing. ECO3 has now closed. The new scheme ECO4 is expected to start in the summer. Please register interest to be contacted later in the year.
What’s the ECO scheme?
Under the government’s Energy Company Obligation (ECO), British Gas provides funding for measures that make your home more energy efficient.
ECO is for low income households. If you’re on one of the qualifying benefits you may be eligible for the scheme. Eligibility for homeowners is straightforward but for tenants it’s a little more complicated as your landlord has legal responsibilities. If you’re a tenant, we recommend you contact your landlord first.
Works are not always completely free of charge, it depends on what work is being done and the technical requirements of your home.
All work will be carried out by our trusted partners, not British Gas. All our ECO installers are TrustMark registered and all work carried out under the ECO comes with a guarantee or warranty.
The most popular insulation measures under ECO include:
- Cavity wall insulation
- Under floor insulation
- Loft insulation
- Room in roof insulation
British Gas has now delivered 1m Energy Efficiency measures under the ECO scheme since it began in 2013
How it works
One of our trusted partners will be in touch to complete a telephone assessment. All going well, they’ll arrange a date to visit to confirm your home’s suitability for the scheme and advise you of any financial contribution you may need to make.
You’re under no obligation, but if you’re happy for the work to go ahead, the installer will agree a date to install your measures.
All arrangements will be made directly with the installer, and any financial contribution will be payable direct to your installer, not British Gas.
Please note that due to high demand, it may be a week or two before an installer gets in touch.
We can’t guarantee that an installer will be available in your area, but we’ll let you know if not.
Your home may not be suitable for the ECO scheme – your installer will let you know if this is the case.
