Someone has to pay for it, right? Boiler grants are funded by the 'big six' energy suppliers who are now obliged to fund the installation of energy saving improvements in to vulnerable homes throughout the UK. The grants have been running for a couple of years now and millions have already been installed.
If you want to learn more about the ECO scheme, please visit the GOV.UK website. Free boilers are funded by the 'Affordable Warmth' part of the energy company obligation.
Millions of home owners and private tenants throughout the UK have a daily struggle to keep their homes heated, especially as they move in to the colder months. For those in low income households and those will small children, the thought of winter coming can be particularly daunting.
To replace a boiler, you could be looking at anywhere in the region of £2000-£4000 for a typical installation, which for many families is completely out of reach. The ECO scheme has been set up to help those who are most vulnerable by funding the installation of free boilers and home insulation to help reduce their carbon footprints and slash their energy bills. By replacing an old G rated boiler with a new modern A rated one via a government grant, you could save up-to as much as £350 per year.
You must be on a mains gas supply, be the home owner or private tenant (with the landlords permission) and meet the benefits related criteria in order to qualify.
We've helped over 60,000 families throughout the UK access grants to improve the efficiency of their homes and to reduce their bills. We work alongside a nationwide network of installers who are fully insured, checked and vetted to ensure that you are in safe hands.
