ECO4 Grant Scheme
The government has put an obligation to the energy companies to invest back into UK households to make them more energy efficient. In partnership with Energy Saving Trust, such schemes have been running from quite a few years helping thousands of households get new, better and more energy efficient boilers. We are an approved installer from the Energy Saving Trust, OFGEM and GasSafe. We are also PAS 2030 accredited which ensures all installations are compliant to Building Regulations and of very high standard.

Smart meters - helping you save energy
A smart meter is a newer type of electricity or gas meter. All energy suppliers are installing them as a part of an upgrade to energy system.
Smart meters also provide automatic meter readings. You get one meter for gas and one for electricity. The meters then automatically send your usage to your supplier.
Smart meters come with a handy in-home display called an IHD. Here you can see how much energy you're using and what it costs.
What is EPC rating and how to improve it
Find out all about Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) and how you can improve your home’s energy efficiency
An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is valid for 10 years and shows you how energy efficient a home is. It’s key to buying, selling or renting a property as it gives you an idea of:
- Energy bills
- Carbon emissions
- What you can do to improve its energy efficiency
Even if you’re not moving, it’s worth having a look at your home’s EPC to find out what you can do to reduce your energy bills and carbon emissions. Once you’ve made improvements to your home, make sure to have a new EPC issued. You can access any home’s EPC through the government’s website.
How to improve your EPC rating
Improving your EPC means improving your home’s energy efficiency. It also means you could reduce your energy bills, make your home warmer and more comfortable and increase its value and reduce your carbon footprint. Here are some of the ways to improve your EPC:
- Double glazing: Upgrading your windows and doors won’t just improve your home’s energy performance, it can reduce noise too.
- Loft insulation: It’s easy to install, inexpensive and can make a huge difference to your bills. Install loft insulation that’s at least 270mm thick.
- Wall insulation: Whether your home has cavity or solid walls, insulating them can improve your EPC rating and you might qualify for help with the costs.
- Replace your boiler: You can cut your energy bills with a new, energy-efficient boiler.
