This map shows which areas are most likely to have no mains gas supply and therefore where householders are more likely to rely on electric storage heaters to heat their homes.

The darker the shading, the higher the percentage of homes with no access to mains gas and therefore the more householders who have to rely on electric storage heaters.

We process Government Grants for Electric Storage Heaters for home owners throughout mainland England, Scotland and Wales, plus Anglesey.

Grants for Electric Storage Heaters from the Government's ECO Scheme

Grants for electric storage heaters help to replace broken electric storage heaters with energy efficient electric storage heaters so that low income householders can reduce their energy bills.

The value of your electric storage heater grant depends on the type of home you live in, how many bedrooms it has and how well insulated it is. Sometimes, electric storage heater grants don’t cover the full cost of replacing all of your broken electric storage heaters and a contribution may be required towards the cost.

ECO3 - The Government's ECO Scheme 2018 to 2022

Grants for Electric Storage Heaters from the Government’s ECO Scheme are available for home owners to help replace broken electric storage heaters.

Under ECO 3 you must receive one of the qualifying State Benefits, Tax Credits or other allowances.  This is because ECO 3 has been designed to focus the funding towards low income households only.

Grants for Electric Storage Heaters from the ECO Scheme

The ECO Scheme is a Government initiative which is designed to help low income households to replace broken heating systems with new energy efficient heating systems.

Major changes to the ECO Scheme were introduced in October 2018 and now, only home owners will qualify for grants to replace broken heating systems. The Government has introduced legislation to make landlords of privately rented homes responsible for providing a working heating system in homes they rent out.

Consequently, grants for electric storage heaters are not available for tenants of privately rented homes. Neither are they available to tenants in council or housing association owned homes or to those living in shared ownership homes.

The other major change was to limit grants for electric storage heaters to householders who receive one of the qualifying State Benefits, Tax Credits or other Allowances.  However, the number of qualifying benefits has been increased to include Child Benefit, DLA, PIP and other DWP administered or MOD administered allowances.
