A staggering 26 million homes in the UK need to be upgraded when it comes to energy efficiency.
The Government recognises that fuel poverty is a major issue in the UK. To help residents to make their homes more comfortable and energy efficient, they launched their Eco 3 funding programme.
This Green Deal Scheme aims to help homeowners and landlords to make properties more energy efficient, therefore reducing fuel poverty and improving the country’s housing stock.
Those in fuel poverty or from low income homes can access Eco 3 funding – access to free grants to provide cavity wall insulation, new boilers, loft insulation, under floor insulation and central heating.
The funding is covered by the energy companies.
