If you receive certain benefits or your household earns less than £31,000, reliable energy experts at Efficient Homes can help you to get a free heating upgrade this winter, which will save money on bills and add value to your home.

The family-run company can help home owners to make the most of the Government’s ECO4 scheme and receive your share of a £4 billion funding pot from energy suppliers.

Managing Director Sam Jobling said: “It is natural to think that you can’t get something for nothing – but we are trying to get the message out to local homeowners, so they can make the most of these free heating upgrades. They just need to get in touch.”

What’s included?

You can get funding for:

- Solid and cavity wall insulation

- Loft and room in roof insulation

- Gas boiler upgrades

- Underfloor insulation

- Smart heating controls

- Solar PV

- Air source heat pumps

What customers say

“From start to finish the service was brilliant. John is always ready to help with cheerful information. I was always kept up-to-date with timelines. The boys that came to my home to do the jobs were very polite, helpful and informative. I’m very happy with the service.” Moira

“Wow, we would highly recommend Efficient Homes. We work with homeless 16 to 25-year-olds and our heating has been a huge issue for the last three years as it is far too expensive for our clients to use. We have had 36 heaters replaced in our hostel and cavity wall insulation in our dispersed accommodation.” Emma

“I applied for replacement electric heaters for a tenant using a grant. The process was speedy, thorough and efficient. The fitters that arrived were extremely polite, tidy and helpful. Such a smooth process, I am extremely impressed. Thank you.” Abi
