Boiler Grants – Discounted

Apply Now

Fancy a new boiler and controls but don’t require any insulation? You’re at the right place!

 

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

PLEASE NOTE: The amount of your grant is based upon a scoring system known as ‘Deemed Scores’. A number of indicators including but not limited to i) the type of property you reside in e.g. detached, semi-detached, terrace etc., ii) how many bedrooms it has iii) wall type i.e. cavity or solid plus other factors are used in the calculation. In most cases the grant will not cover the total cost of installing a new boiler and a contribution is required.

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.

Affordable Warmth Scheme

The scheme is part of the Government’s ECO (Energy Company Obligation) initiative and facilitates low-income households improving the energy efficiency of their home via a grant.

For those homeowners on qualifying benefits grants are provided for the replacements of broken central heating boiler or electric storage heaters.

The Energy Companies Obligation was introduced to help reduce energy consumption for qualifying householders who are living in fuel poverty.

Affordable Warmth Scheme funding starts in the form of a levy on everyone’s electricity bill and the money collected is directed into an ECO Fund. This money is distributed in the form of ECO Grants to accredited installation companies once they have completed the boiler or storage heater installation.

Boiler Grant Qualifying Criteria for qualifying benefits was extended on the 1st October 2018 so that more households can take advantage of the ECO Scheme. Unfortunately, private tenants no longer qualify for ECO grants to replace broken boilers.

The best way to see if you qualify is to click on the ‘Apply Now’ button at the top of the page and spend no more than a few seconds answering the questions.

  • Income Based Job Seekers Allowance

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 inspecting the working order and age of the existing boiler, controls and discussing any existing water pressure issues you may have.

From here we will arrange a mutually convenient time for the installation to take place.

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 model/manufacturer, a contribution may be required and this would need to be paid prior to works commencing.

Also, if you qualify for a boiler replacement grant but wish to upgrade your existing boiler and tanks to e.g. a combi boiler (upgrade from a conventional boiler and tanks) this can be accomplished with a contribution for extra materials and work required. 

After our technical heating survey of your property is completed, a competitive no obligation quote will be provided for this extra work.

Most installations are completed within 1 day and we will explain what is involved and answer any questions you may have.
