We all know that the best way to cut your energy bills, minimise your carbon footprint and keep cosy in winter and cool in summer is to have a well insulated, energy efficient home. But making 'green' improvements to your home can be costly.

ECO4 Flex is a UK Government backed scheme, supported by East Ayrshire Council which could help you with free or subsidised installation of:

  • microgeneration such as electricity generating solar panels
  • replacement heating systems such as a new condensing boiler or air source heat pump
  • insulation measures such as cavity, loft, internal/external wall insulation


You could be eligible if you own a home with an energy rating in band D, E, F or G (priority given to E, F, G) and one of the following:

  • combined household income is less than £31,000
  • someone in your household has a severe or long term health condition that is adversely affected by living in a cold home
  • your household qualifies for other reasons relating to income and health

If you meet the criteria for the scheme, you will be able to use an accredited approved ECO installer and you will have the peace of mind of knowing that all work carried out through the scheme is guaranteed.

Not eligible but still want to reduce the carbon footprint of my home

If you're not eligible for ECO4 Flex grants you can still get help and advice on how best to upgrade your home to increase energy efficiency and cut your carbon footprint.
