Yes! The UK Government has carbon reduction targets to meet. All major Energy Companies are obliged by the UK Government to fund these measures. If successful with an application you will get a free grant towards energy-saving measures (in some cases the whole installation might be free).

Are these grants really free?

How much will I get?

It's difficult to tell until a free survey takes place as you could get insulation installed in addition to your heating being upgrade. The grant is paid directly to the installer rather than do you directly.

The scheme is available to households that receive at least one or more of the qualifying benefits above or where the household has high fuel costs or is vulnerable or on a low-income. Check eligibility here >

Am I eligible for the ECO scheme?

Usually from the point at which you apply to the installation should take no longer than 4 weeks but sometimes you can have your new heating or insulation installed within a week or less.

"I’m glad I chose Energy Saving Genie from all the other web listings."

Our experience from start to finish was fantastic especially in this current global situation so well done all, the boiler is now great with plenty of hot water, heating not currently required due to the great weather but not having any winter worries this year and beyond.
Thank you all again.
