The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is a government energy efficiency scheme in Great Britain to help reduce carbon emissions and tackle fuel poverty.
There are a wide range of energy efficiency measures that can be installed under ECO such as Oil Boilers (HHCRO only) and loft and cavity wall insulation (CERO and HHCRO).
Who is eligible?
Who pays for it?
Under ECO, larger energy suppliers fund the installation of energy efficiency measures in British households.
Each obligated supplier has an overall target based on its share of the domestic energy market in Britain.
The obligated energy suppliers work with installers to introduce certain efficiency measures into your home, such as loft or wall insulation or heating measures.
What are the main obligations?
Carbon Emissions Reduction Obligation (CERO)Under CERO, obligated suppliers must promote ‘primary measures’, including roof and wall insulation and connections to district heating systems. Some CERO must also be delivered in rural areas.
Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation (HHCRO)Under HHCRO, obligated suppliers must promote measures which improve the ability of low income and vulnerable household to heat their homes. This includes actions that result in heating savings, such as the replacement or repair of a boiler.

I engaged LMG to help re-render the front of my property, they arrived on time, finished the job pretty quickly and were clear and upfront about the project throughout. I would definitely recommend them.
Very happy with the external wall insulation work LMG has provided and at a reasonable price too. The boys were very friendly and hard working,reliable and the quality of the work is excellent. I was always kept in the loop. I will definitely be contacting them in the near future for work on the inside. Brilliant company!!
Very happy with the work done. Very clean no mess couldn’t fault this company. Recommend LMG Home Improvements to anyone.
After 2 weeks cooling off period, the boys were here the following week, had my house hacked off to bare brick, soffit wall ties done, weather boards replaced, facias and soffits and an acrylic honeysuckle render put on. Looks really good, very happy with the price as Carmarthen builders were much more expensive. In total it took them a whole 7 days to complete the job. My neighbours are very impressed with their work. The only downfall was that I had to keep them in bacon and egg sandwiches, coffee and biscuits. 🙂 Would definitely recommend them.
Recently had some insulation render put on our 2 bed terraced house. After the 2 week cooling off period the chaps were on site & had the job done relatively quickly & for a very competitive price. We’re very happy with our Ardente colour which has set off a mini trend on our street.
I would definitely recommend LMG. We’ve got them back on site in a week to render our extension (which we couldn’t do at the same time due to works on our shed)
Want to say a massive thank you to all the guys at LMG Home Improvements! I’m extremely happy with the outcome! The guys on site have been fantastic throughout and a real credit to your company. Will happily recommend to anyone.
LMG provided a good, reliable quotation for the works that was in line with other quotes obtained. The quality of the insulation and rendering work completed is excellent; including the detailing around windows, pipes and roof line.
Communication with LMG was excellent throughout, with regular updates at each stage of the work. The professionalism of the communication was greatly appreciated, long with helpful advice on the technical points of the insulation system.
We are very pleased with the finished rendering to the front of our house, so we are planning to have LMG do the back next year.
The workmen were very friendly, easy to talk to and listened to our requirements, telling us what would happen, why and when. We felt they had pride in their work.
Very happy with the work done. Very clean and no mess. Couldn’t fault the company. Recommend LMG Home Improvements to anyone.

External Wall Insulation
If you have a property built before 1940, the chances are it is built from stone or solid brick and is poorly insulated. As well as making your home cosy and warm, External Wall Insulation provides a brand new finish to your house in a choice of colours.
Rendering & Facades
Give your property a facelift and prevent any nasty damp from penetrating into your brickwork through cracked render. We offer a range of options for rendering and facades for terraced, semi detached and larger properties.
Cavity Wall Extraction
If your property has had cavity wall insulation in the past, the chances are your home is suffering or is at risk of suffering from damp and mould. We specialise in the removal of cavity wall insulation, eliminating the causal factors of penetrating damp.
In addition to providing EWI, Rendering and Facades, we are often asked to renew fascias & soffits and gutters. We also provide a cavity wall clearance service and install remedial wall-ties for cavity walls with a chequered past.
