ECO INSULATION GRANT
LOCAL INSTALLERS THROUGHOUT GLASGOW, EDINBURGH & SCOTLAND REGION
Are you a homeowner, landlord or a private tenant currently in receipt of benefits or tax credits? You could be entitled to a free ECO insulation grant for cavity wall and loft insulation through the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme, a government led initiative created to lower carbon emissions and take families across Scotland and the UK out of ‘Fuel Poverty.’
Free ECO insulation grants in Scotland
Originally set up in 2013, the ECO grant scheme provides access to insulation funding for low-income households. Grants are funded by the ‘Big Six’ energy companies (British Gas, Scottish Power, SSE, E.ON, EDF Energy and Npower), who are under an obligation to help reduce emission levels and allow people improve the efficiency of their homes. Under the scheme, you could get FREE cavity wall and loft insulation, with 100% funding available.
In 2018, the scheme was upgraded to ECO 3, with substantially increased funding and an expanded eligibility criteria. This means that many people who were previously ineligible for funding can now take advantage of the scheme. If you are currently receiving benefits, (including child benefits) and live in a property that can be insulated, the chances are you’re entitled to an ECO insulation grant. Contact us today to find out if you’re entitled and request your free survey – it’s fast and easy.

How much could I save on my energy bills?
Cavity wall and loft insulation helps to make your home more efficient. By preventing heat from escaping through your walls,loft and attic, you’ll need to use less energy to heat your home and reduce your carbon dioxide emissions.
Although savings vary, insulation could help slash your fuel bills by up to £475 a year. Actual savings will depend on a range of factors, including the size and type of property, whether you have any existing insulation, and how much energy you use.
How do I apply?
To find out if you’re eligible for funding, you just need to complete a short form and answer a few basic questions about yourself, your property, and the benefits you are receiving.
We will arrange for an energy grants surveyor to visit your home and carry out a free, no-obligation home survey. The surveyor will check if your walls have a cavity and if there is currently any insulation within your walls/loft.
If you meet all eligibility criteria, we will help you fill in a grant application form and arrange for the work to be carried out. Installation is simple and, in most instances, takes just a few hours.
