NIA welcomes Government response to ECO Help to Heat consultation

Commenting on this mornings Government response Neil Marshall, Chief Executive of the National Insulation Association (NIA) said:" We welcome the changes that Government has made which will mean thousands more households will receive assistance through free and subsidised insulation.

The Government has listened and responded to the views and evidence provided by industry including the NIA. The principle changes are as follows:

  • An increased 18 month vs 12 month scheme 
  • 75% of the work delivered will be through home insulation 
  • 60% increase in the carbon target 
  • Significant increase in the Solid Wall Insulation minima in addition householders added to the low income group
  • Simplification of the scheme administration which will enable more money to be spent on actual insulation measures
