Eco-home Network - Air-source and ground-source heat pump grants
Transition to Sustainable Heating Solutions with Eco-home Network
As the UK continues to strive towards achieving its target of net zero carbon emissions by 2050, it is important that we all take steps to reduce our carbon footprint. One of the most effective ways to achieve 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, and we are pleased to offer Air-source and ground-source heat pump grants to eligible homeowners and tenants across the UK through the ECO 4 scheme.
The ECO 4 scheme is designed to help eligible households in Northampton, Kettering, Corby, Wellingborough, Rushden, Daventry in Northamptonshire claim grants towards the cost of installing an air-source or ground-source heat pump. To be eligible for the grant, you must claim an eligible benefit, be on a low income or have an illness which is affected by the cold, and your property must have an EPC rating of G, F or E.
Depending on your current circumstances and property type, and EPC rating, you may be eligible for a grant of up to £10,000 towards the cost of an air-source or ground-source heat pump.
Air-source heat pumps work by extracting heat from the air outside your home and using it to heat your property. Ground-source heat pumps work in a similar way, but instead of extracting heat from the air, they extract heat from the ground. Both types of heat pumps are highly efficient and can help you to significantly reduce your carbon footprint, while also saving you money on your energy bills.
To apply for an ECO 4 grant, you will need to contact Eco-home Network and provide us with some basic information about your property and your current heating system. Our team will then review your application and let you know if you are eligible for a grant. If you are eligible, we will work with you to help you choose the right type of heat pump for your property and arrange for it to be installed by a qualified installer.
At Eco-home Network, we are committed to helping homeowners in Northampton, Kettering, Corby, Wellingborough, Rushden, Daventry in Northamptonshire make the transition to more sustainable and energy-efficient heating solutions.
