Get a boiler grant from your energy supplier
July 29th, 2013
In the UK there are a number of boiler grants and schemes to help the most vulnerable households with their expensive bills. Vulnerable households are often classified like this because of a low income or inefficient boiler which is wasting money every year.
And the nation’s biggest energy suppliers, including the ‘big six’ of British Gas, Eon, EDF, Scottish Power, SSE and Npower, are obliged to help homeowners in the UK reduce their carbon emissions.
This scheme is all part of the Energy Company Obligation (ECO), which was launched in line with the Green Deal.
Under both the Green Deal and ECO scheme, homeowners have the opportunity to receive boiler grants or loans to improve energy efficiency in the property. This can come in a number of ways, including loft insulation, double glazing, cavity and solid wall insulation or a replacement boiler.
Each of these improvements must be completed by a contractor to get the best results and maximum energy saving potential. This is even more so with a replacement boiler, because tampering with gas appliances yourself can lead to major hazards such as an explosion or fire. You must speak to a Gas Safe registered engineer.
What energy-saving offers are available?
Boiler grants under the ECO scheme are subject to you meeting the eligibility criteria. To find out if you’re eligible to receive a grant, ensure to complete our quick form and an advisor will be able to process your application.
You can also receive a loan or a boiler grant under the Government’s flagship energy efficiency scheme, the Green Deal. With the Green Deal there are no upfront costs and instead you can receive a loan for the full installation.
Payback is made with the money you save on energy bills and the scheme’s Golden Rule is that you won’t payback more than you’re saving.
