Storage Heater Grants from the Government's ECO Scheme

Storage Heater Grants are available from the Government’s ECO Scheme throughout England, Scotland and Wales. Northern Ireland has it’s own separate scheme.

The Storage Heater Grants Scheme is a ‘like for like’ replacement scheme. This means that you must have faulty or inefficient electric storage heaters installed in your home at the time of your Free ECO Survey. New electric storage heaters can only be installed if the old ones can be removed.

This helps you to save money on your heating bills whilst reducing carbon emissions from your home.

You may qualify for Storage Heater Grants if you must:

  1. Live in your own home or one you rent from a private landlord, AND
  2. Receive certain State Benefits (full details HERE), AND
  3. Have faulty or inefficient electric storage heater installed in your home.

Storage Heater Grants 2018 to 2022 - ECO3

Storage Heater Grants are provided by the Government’s ECO Scheme and the current version is due to end on 30th September 2018.

However, the Government has announced that it intends to introduce ECO3  sometime after 1st October 2018 and this is expected to run until March 2022.

Changes to the ECO Scheme

When ECO3 is introduced, it is expected that the qualifying criteria as regards State Benefits and Tax Credits will be extended to include a much wider range of Government Allowances. For example, householders in receipt of Carer’s Allowance, Disability Living Allowance (DLA), Personal Independence Payment (PIP) and some MOD administered allowances are expected to qualify for Storage Hear Grants under the new ECO3 Scheme.
