Saving The Planet One Insulation At A Time: The ECO4 Revolution

Did you know that, as a homeowner, you could play a significant part in saving our planet and reducing your energy bills at the same time? And even better, that this could be done for free? Yes, you read that right! Thanks to the final phase of the Energy Company Obligation, known as the ECO4 scheme, insulating your home has never been easier or more affordable​.

What is ECO4 Scheme?

The UK government launched the ECO4 scheme as an initiative to improve the energy efficiency of homes nationwide. The scheme is fully funded by energy suppliers and aims to reduce energy bills and carbon emissions at no cost to customers​.

A number of reputable companies are part of this initiative. For example UK Energy Support (UKES), an approved installer and supplier of insulation and heating. The UKES team has years of experience installing loft and cavity wall insulation, as well as upgrading home heating systems.

How can this benefit me?

Through the ECO4 scheme, UKES can provide a range of home improvements, including loft and cavity wall insulation, room in roof insulation, electric storage heaters, smart heating controls (Smart metres), non-condensing to condensing boiler upgrades, air source heat pumps, and even solar panels, all free of charge. This is subject to meeting the qualifying criteria of the ECO4 scheme​.

So, how do you know if you’re eligible for these benefits? Homeowners and private tenants who struggle financially are likely to be eligible for the ECO4 grant. The scheme is particularly aimed at those with properties having low EPC ratings, and low income. If you receive benefits such as Child Benefits, Child Tax Credits, Income based Jobseekers Allowance, Income related Employment and Support Allowance, Income Support, Pension Credit Guarantee Credit, Universal Credit, Warm Home Discount Scheme Rebate, Working Tax Credit, Housing Benefit, or Pension Credit Savings Credit, you could be eligible for this grant​.

Let’s delve a bit deeper into what these improvements could mean for you and your home. 

Cavity wall insulation improvements

Cavity wall and loft insulation can significantly reduce the amount of heat lost from your home, thus reducing your heating bills and carbon emissions. The ECO4 scheme covers a wide range of home improvements, and if you qualify, you could be entitled to free loft insulation and cavity wall insulation grants​.

But what if your home has solid walls? Don’t worry, ECO4 has got you covered too. With the ECO4 scheme, you can avail of free solid wall and internal wall insulation. Around 35% of heat escapes from homes through their exterior walls, so if your home is constructed with solid walls, insulation can make a significant difference​.

For those with a room-in-roof, fully funded room-in-roof insulation is also available. This can significantly improve the energy efficiency of your dormer or pitched roof​.


The ECO4 scheme isn’t just about free home improvements; it represents an invitation to participate in a larger movement towards a more sustainable future. With each insulation fitted, each energy-efficient heating system installed, and each home better equipped to save energy, we are all contributing to saving the planet one step at a time.

When you take part in the ECO4 scheme, you’re not just lowering your energy bills and making your home more comfortable, you’re also playing a crucial role in the broader picture of climate action. You’re reducing your carbon footprint, conserving resources, and helping the UK reach its ambitious carbon reduction targets. And the best part? You can do all this without dipping into your pocket.

So, don’t let this opportunity pass you by. Find out if you’re eligible today and join the ECO4 revolution. Become a part of this green movement and take a concrete step towards a more sustainable future for yourself and for the planet. Remember, every bit of insulation, every energy-efficient upgrade counts. Together, we can make a big difference. One insulation, one home, one neighbourhood at a time, we can collectively fuel the ECO4 revolution.
