Reducing Your Carbon Footprint with Eco-Home Network
As a responsible citizen, it is crucial to take steps towards reducing our carbon footprint and contribute to the UK's target of achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. One of the most effective ways to do this is by upgrading to modern, low-carbon heating systems such as Air-source and ground-source heat pumps. At Eco-home Network, we are committed to helping homeowners transition to more sustainable and energy-efficient heating solutions.
Through the ECO 4 scheme, we offer Air-source and ground-source heat pump grants to eligible homeowners and tenants across the UK. These grants are available to people who claim an eligible benefit, are on a low income, or have an illness that is affected by the cold. The grants are only available for properties with an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of G, F, or E.
Eco-Home Network is working with homeowners in Bournemouth, Poole, and Christchurch in Dorset to claim ECO 4 grants using the Government's ECO scheme. Suitable households can now obtain an ECO 4 grant, depending on their current circumstances, property type, and EPC rating.
Air-source heat pumps are a low-carbon heating solution that extracts heat from the air outside and uses it to heat your home. They are a highly efficient heating system that can reduce your energy bills and carbon footprint. Ground-source heat pumps work in a similar way, but they extract heat from the ground instead of the air. They are a more expensive option, but they are also more efficient and can provide a more consistent level of heating.
If you are eligible for an ECO 4 grant, you could receive up to 100% funding towards the installation of an air-source or ground-source heat pump. The grant covers the cost of the installation, including the heat pump unit, the installation, and any necessary upgrades to your heating system.
To be eligible for an ECO 4 grant, your property must have an EPC rating of G, F, or E. If your property has a higher EPC rating, you may still be eligible for a grant, but the amount of funding you can receive will be lower. You must also be a homeowner or tenant and claim an eligible benefit, be on a low income, or have an illness that is affected by the cold.
To apply for an ECO 4 grant, you will need to contact a registered installer who is accredited under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS). The installer will assess your property and provide you with a quote for the installation of an air-source or ground-source heat pump. They will also help you to apply for the ECO 4 grant.
At Eco-home Network, we are committed to helping homeowners in Bournemouth, Poole, and Christchurch in Dorset to transition to more sustainable and energy-efficient heating solutions. We believe that Air-source and ground-source heat pumps are an excellent option for homeowners who want to reduce their carbon footprint and save money on their energy bills.
