ECO & Green Deal - Free boiler, loft insulation and cavity wall insulation

You may have been approached by people direct to your door stating that you could qualify for the above for free because of a free scheme.  They could also say that they are working for Bassetlaw District Council.


  • They do not work for Bassetlaw District Council
  • The scheme is ECOFLEX and is a Government scheme not a Bassetlaw District Council scheme
  • Bassetlaw District Council agrees what contractors can work in Bassetlaw and checks all the paperwork once completed with the customer

What will happen if someone comes to your door

A contractor will contact you direct and complete a questionnaire. This is to see if you qualify for the scheme. They will inform you if you qualify and if there is a contribution to be paid by you or if the work is FREE. This will all be prior to you agreeing to any work being completed.

Current Contractors working in Bassetlaw agreed by the council

  • Max Energy/Four Seasons
  • Darren Louth Heating
  • Effective Energy
  • Urban Renewable
  • Distinction Energy
  • All Season Interiors

This scheme is not the Green Homes Grant scheme just  announced by the Government. The Green Homes Scheme is a grant scheme offering up to £5000 in vouchers to help pay for environmentally friendly improvements such as loft, floor and wall insulation or double glazing to replace single glazing. Find out more on the Gov.UK website (external link). This scheme is nothing to do with the council and the council has no details of the scheme as it is direct with the Government.
