Heat Pump Grants in Plymouth
It is our shared responsibility as members of society to reduce our carbon footprint. One of the most effective ways is switching to energy-efficient heating systems such as air-source and ground-source heat pumps, which have a low carbon footprint.
If you live in Plymouth or Devon, the Eco-Home Network provides an excellent opportunity to make this transition smoothly and affordably through the ECO 4 scheme.
ECO 4 scheme: A Boon for Plymouth and Devon Homeowners
The ECO 4 scheme is a government initiative aimed at helping eligible homeowners and tenants across the UK, including Plymouth and Devon, to install low-carbon heating systems. The scheme offers grants that can significantly reduce the financial burden of installing these systems. Not only will you be contributing to a greener planet, but you'll also see a substantial decrease in your energy bills.
Who Can Benefit?
- Individuals claiming eligible benefits
- Low-income households
- People with health conditions worsened by cold temperatures
- Properties with an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of G, F, or E
- Grants can go up to £10,000
- Costs of heat pump installation and associated works like insulation and heating controls upgrade
How Do Air-Source and Ground-Source Heat Pumps Work?
Air-source heat pumps draw heat from the ambient air, while ground-source heat pumps extract heat from the ground. Both systems are highly efficient and can lead to significant energy bill savings.

- Own or rent a property with an EPC rating of G, F, or E
