Could I qualify for a FREE heating grant?

Is your home heating system currently inefficient? Your electric heating system could be replaced free of charge, thanks to free heating grants through the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) Scheme. The ECO Scheme is part of an ongoing objective to improve energy efficiency across the UK, particularly for those in low income or vulnerable households.

Free grants are available to cover the cost of replacing electric room heating or to offer a replacement and upgrade to aged and inefficient electric storage heaters. UKEM (NE) Ltd install high heat retention, fully programmable electric storage heaters which work on an off peak rate through the night reducing costs whilst heating your property more effectively throughout.

ECO 3 Government Funding

With the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) Scheme, you could be eligible for a grant from an energy supplier to upgrade your heating system or insulate your home. The scheme was launched in early 2013 and currently has an extension, ECO3, available for customers in receipt of a qualifying benefit.


We can access funding from utility companies to help low income and vulnerable households across the UK, in both private rented and owner occupied properties. Get in touch with us today to see if you qualify for a free heating system upgrade.
