Could you be eligible for ECO4 funding?

ECO4 funding is designed to help people most affected by rapidly rising energy costs and make homes more energy efficient, while reducing carbon emissions.

The UK government has recently extended its grants to improve energy efficiency in houses up and down the country.

Who can apply?

The ECO4 scheme is open to anyone receiving certain income-related benefits. You must also live in a property with low energy efficiency or a less efficient heating system. 

  • Homeowners or private tenants receiving benefits, including:
    • Child tax credits
    • Universal credit
    • Income-based jobseeker’s allowance (and income support)
    • Employment and support allowance
    • Working tax credit
    • Housing benefit
    • Pension credit 
  • Properties with a low EPC rating (energy efficiency score) of D, E, F or G
  • Properties with inefficient heating systems

Year-round home comfort for years to come

Daikin’s heat pumps are a more energy efficient alternative to traditional central heating systems – and ECO4 funding can be used to pay for them. The grant can be used to replace your existing fossil-fuel based system or otherwise improve your home, for example with new insulation measures.

Why choose a Daikin heat pump? 

  • Enjoy efficient heating and hot water all year round
  • Save on running costs throughout the year
  • A variety of discreet and space-saving options 
  • Ideal for homes of all shapes and sizes, even  older homes

Maximise energy efficiency and home comfort

Daikin and IZ Energy are working together to spread the word about ECO4 funding. Ask IZ Energy about their home surveys and explore what other energy-saving measures you could be eligible for, alongside Daikin’s ever-popular heat pumps.

What is the ECO4 scheme?

ECO means the Energy Company Obligation – it’s the government’s way of ensuring energy companies are supporting homeowners and private tenants to improve energy efficiency (and costs) in these challenging economic times.

Alongside the opportunity to install a more energy efficient heating system – with the added peace of mind that brings, there are countless other advantages.


Loft, wall, and floor insulation measures are offered under this scheme to provide an insulating barrier, preventing heat from escaping and making homes more energy efficient. This should contribute to reduced energy bills and improved quality of life. 


As well as helping reduce energy costs, ECO4 also targets issues of damp, mould and mildew that may lead to health issues in some households. IZ Energy has a ventilation strategy to combat this.


If you’re a landlord, it’s in your best interests to inform tenants of the grant and encourage them to apply (providing the tenant qualifies for the grant and has your approval to proceed). 


For those who do, the grant is generous with some of the lowest EPC-rated properties receiving up to £20,000, depending on the measures needed following a home survey.
