The consultation proposed the introduction of the TrustMark Government Endorsed Quality scheme into ECO3 to provide extra customer protection and guarantees.
Additional proposals revolved around the way first-time central heating was treated in the scheme.
It has been recommended that the lifetime of first-time central heating should be increased from 12 years to 20 years, to recognise the lasting benefits of the whole system.
There may also be a lift on the restrictions to the private rented sector that state ECO funding is not available for properties in EPC band F and G.
This is a result of research from BEIS indicating that the cost of installing measures such as first-time central heating is over the current spending cap outlined in the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard, giving landlords exemption from installing the measure.
Also proposed is the extension of the LA Flex route to ECO funding, allowing first-time central heating to be part of in-fill schemes.
