What is the Great British Insulation Scheme?
The Government’s initiative known as the Great British Insulation Scheme focuses on enhancing the insulation of residential properties. It operates in conjunction with another governmental program dedicated to energy efficiency, namely ECO4.
Residences that are prone to drafts experience rapid heat loss, leading to higher expenses to maintain warmth. According to certain reports, housing in the UK ranks among the least energy-efficient in Europe. This fresh initiative, backed by a budget exceeding £1 billion, aims to provide support to approximately 300,000 households across the nation, assisting with the expenses associated with the installation of new home insulation.
If you qualify for insulation under this scheme, you may be eligible to receive it at no cost or at a reduced expense. The extent of this benefit will hinge on the specific insulation requirements of your dwelling and its structural characteristics.
The Great British Insulation Scheme encompasses two categories of eligibility: a standard group and a low-income group, each offering distinct levels of assistance.
If you have a current Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) then you can check it via the UK government website.
If your certificate has expired or you do not have one, you can contact us directly to carry out a survey to provide you with one.

Again, the time that home insulation takes depends on whether you choose to handle the installation yourself or trust our fully accredited installation experts to take care of your home’s insulation needs. With expert installation from Eco Systems, installation of an average loft can be finished inside half a day, whereas, if you choose to install your loft insulation – this could become an entire weekend job! Cavity wall insulation should always be carried out by a trusted expert.
Along with your loft/roof and walls, heat is also lost from your home through your floors, as well as your windows and doors. As your energy-saving partner, Eco Systems can supply and fit this full range of services for your home to accompany your home insulation. Complete a full refurbishment of your home with solar panels, masonry coating and a brand-new heat pump to save on your energy bills each month.
The government introduced the ECO3 (Energy Company Obligation) scheme which means that energy suppliers must promote the installation of energy-saving measures for your home. Under the ECO scheme, you could have the complete cost of home insulation covered by a grant – providing you meet the criteria for the ECO scheme by being on certain benefits and are recommended by your local authority. For more information on the ECO grant scheme, see our dedicated grant page.
Home insulation is beneficial for many different reasons and because of this, the government are continuously releasing initiatives and grants to help homeowners benefit. Some reasons are:
- Save Money – Insulation helps reduce energy bills every month by up to 30%. Cavity wall and loft insulation are major contributors to these savings.
- Eco-friendly – Insulation helps to reduce energy consumption which reduces the release of carbon emissions, which is one of the main atmospherical issues.
- Prevents damp – Insulation protects against dampness and rot to your structure.
- Health benefits – Insulation improves indoor air quality by blocking pollutants, dust and toxins from entering your home.
Over the years we have met standards and levels of expertise that reflect in our accreditations and accolades.
