Financial help with energy efficiency
There is a range of financial support available to help fund energy efficiency improvements in your home. This may include funding towards installing loft or wall insulation, repairs to or replacement of a faulty heating system.
Under the Energy Company Obligation (ECO), the largest energy suppliers are required to help fund energy efficiency improvements in the homes of low income customers.
Eligibility criteria vary across different schemes, but if you are on a low income or have a long-term health condition, and you live in a property that needs better heating or insulation, you could qualify some financial support to help cover the costs of these improvements.
Your local council, Home Energy visitors, Citizens Advice, and other local organisations can advise you on the help available – contact details can be found in the Help and Advice section.
