Free Boiler Scheme for Tenants
The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is a scheme which began in April 2013 to help tackle fuel poverty and greatly reduce carbon emissions.
The ECO scheme was not created to just support homeowners. If you are a tenant and feel your home is not as efficient at keeping you warm, then you could qualify for external wall insulation or loft insulation under this scheme. With your landlord’s consent we could insulate the home you live in.
The criteria remain the same for tenant’s as well as homeowners. Qualifying customers could have their homes insulated free of charge. This scheme simply 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
You are not required to repay any money back for this scheme. 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 piece of mind that replacing of your boiler will be completed to the highest standard.
