Do you need help with a broken or inefficient heating system? Do you need help with insulation?
If you answered yes, you could get help through the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme. It's a government scheme, led by the private sector, not the council.
Details of companies in Middlesbrough who might be able to help are listed below. Please contact them directly.
Please note, not all boilers or insulation measures are free of charge, and we recommend getting quotes from more than one company.

Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme
The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme aims to help residents who are living in fuel poverty, on low income, and vulnerable to the effects of living in a cold home.
Councils are now able to determine which homes are eligible by using a new 'flexible eligibility' mechanism (ECO Flex).
The measures deliverable through ECO Flex are as follows:
- cavity wall insulation
- loft insulation
- inefficient heating replacements
- solid wall insulation
Warm Homes Fund
Councils across the Tees Valley, led by Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council, have secured nearly £6.1 million from a national fund. It’s invaluable support to households who do not already have central heating and may be struggling to afford to stay warm.
The scheme is expected to run until 2021 but operates on a first-come, first-served basis and will close to new applications once all the funds have been allocated.
