Eco4 is a government-backed scheme aimed at helping homeowners reduce their carbon footprint and improve energy efficiency in their homes.
One of the key ways to achieve this is through insulation measures, which can significantly reduce the amount of heat lost from a property and therefore lower energy bills and carbon emissions.
There are a variety of insulation measures available that are eligible under the Eco4 scheme, including
Loft Insulation, Cavity Wall Insulation,
and solid wall insulation.
Loft Insulation involves installing a layer of insulation material in the space between the ceiling and the roof, while Cavity Wall Insulation involves filling the gap between the inner and outer layers of brickwork with insulation material. Solid wall insulation is suitable for homes without a cavity wall and involves adding insulation to the inside or outside of the wall.
By improving the insulation in a home, homeowners can significantly reduce the amount of heat lost through the roof, walls, and floors,
and therefore reduce their energy consumption and costs.
Not only does this make homes more comfortable and environmentally friendly, but it also increases the value of the property and can make it more attractive to potential buyers.
In addition to insulation measures, there are other ways to improve energy efficiency in the home that are also eligible under the Eco4 scheme. These include upgrading to more efficient heating systems such as air source heat pumps and improving the energy efficiency of windows and doors.
Overall, insulation measures are an effective way to reduce energy consumption and costs, and make a home more comfortable and environmentally friendly. With the help of the Eco4 scheme, homeowners can access funding and support to make these improvements and enjoy the benefits of a more energy-efficient home.
