Free Boiler Scheme
The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is a scheme which began in April 2013 to help tackle fuel poverty and greatly reduce carbon emissions.
This scheme of replacing inefficient boilers are available for any customer who owns their own home and are on the below qualifying benefits to aid them in reducing the cost of heating their home and bringing down their carbon footprint.
Qualifying customers could have their boilers replaced with a more efficient boiler free of charge. This scheme requires you to be on one of the following benefits:
- Child Tax Credit
- Income-Related ESA
- Income-Based JSA
- Income Support
- Guarantee Pension Credit
- Working Tax Credits
- Universal Credit
- Disability Living Allowance
- Personal Independence Payment
- Attendance Allowance
- Carer’s Allowance
- Severe Disablement Allowance
The scheme was simply set up to support the energy company’s customers. All properties are given a lifetime saving score which is worked out on property type, number of bedrooms and wall type. From this calculation the amount of funding can be confirmed which is then allocated towards the cost of your new boiler. Most installs have full funding but unfortunately in some cases a small contribution may be required.
We have been involved with the ECO scheme since it began and have a wealth of knowledge in this sector. If you qualify we will complete everything with you direct from the first phone call all the way to heating your home with the new boiler. All our Engineers are fully qualified, so you can have full peace of mind that replacing of your boiler will be completed to the highest standard.
