ECO3 Boiler and Underfloor Insulation Grants

Apply Now

Fancy a new boiler? Do you have suspended floors (floor boards) / non-solid floors?

 

As part of the Government’s ECO3 Grant Scheme, within a few weeks you could have an up-to-date, highly efficient heating system consisting of a new boiler and underfloor insulation.

ECO3 – Makes this possible

Set up by the Government in 2013 with the aim to make UK homes more energy efficient by installing dual energy saving measures, The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) directive means that the main energy suppliers; British Gas, SSE, EDF, E-on Next and alike, are obligated to invest in these measures for householders who qualify under the ‘affordable warmth’ bracket and are in receipt of certain benefits.

ECO3 is the third round of this Government Grant aided scheme and the final phase 4, runs from 1 April 2021 to 31 March 2022.

The two current measures we can help you benefit from are;

  • Boiler Replacement
  • Underfloor Insulation

*Please note that Underfloor Insulation is the primary measure that can then enable the boiler replacement measure.

Measures throughout the various rounds of the scheme since its inception have also included;

  • External Wall Insulation
  • Loft Insulation
  • Electric Storage Heater Replacement
  • Room- in- roof Insulation
  • Cavity wall Insulation
  • First Time Central Heating
  • Internal Wall Insulation

  • Income Based Job Seekers Allowance
  • Universal Credit
  • Pension Guarantee Credit
  • Working Tax Credit

So you Qualify for the Grant – Next Steps

Upon qualifying for the grant we will arrange a free survey to identify the energy efficiency of the property.

This will include ensuring that the flooring is suspended so that underfloor insulation can be installed and we will look at the age and working order of the existing boiler.

From here we will arrange a mutually convenient time for the installations to take place; the underfloor insulation takes place first followed by replacement of the boiler.

We will clarify the boiler manufacturer and model that you qualify for but please note that in the event of you wishing to upgrade to another, a contribution may be required and this would need to be paid prior to works commencing.

Most installations are completed within 3 days and we will explain what is involved and answer any questions you may have.

If you are the tenant then it is important that the landlord of the property is also notified of the upgrades as not only is it beneficial to you – in the way of increased energy efficiency and reduction of associated energy bills – but it can also increase the value of the property.
