Home insulation is one of the best ways of maintaining a desired temperature throughout the year. It is also an efficient way of reducing energy bills and reducing the carbon footprint. Depending on the size and age of your house, you may need to insulate some or all areas. Typically, everything from the roof and loft to the floor and walls will need insulation to retain maximum heat inside the house. Although they understand the importance of insulation, homeowners are often sceptical about spending a large sum on it. But it is an investment worth making as it pays back quicker than you may think. And with special incentives like the EcoHome Insulation grant, it is even more convenient and cost-effective to install insulation in your house.
The EcoHome Insulation Scheme – What is it?
There are several insulation incentives for homeowners to help make their homes more energy-efficient and keep them warm during winter. One of the most popular ones is the EcoHome Insulation Scheme. It is available under the Energy Companies Obligation (ECO) that is part of the UK Government’s new Green Deal Energy Efficiency program. ECO is an obligation on Gas & Electricity suppliers to pay for Energy Efficient improvements such as insulation in households that are more likely to be fuel poor. Qualifying homeowners eligible for an insulation grant can make their property more energy efficient and save money on their heating bills.
