Find out if you could get help with a new boiler
Heating your home is not cheap, and with an inefficient boiler, it can be even more costly. However, if you’re on a low income, or struggling to pay your heating bills. You could get a grant for a new A-rated boiler.
As part of the 2016 Governments ECO Scheme, grants for new boilers are being allocated to low-income households throughout the UK in a drive to improve heating efficiency and reduce heating bills. It aims to reduce fuel poverty in low-income households by ensuring that heat is generated as efficiently as possible and fuel wastage is kept to a minimum.
The ECO scheme will fund the installation of free or subsidised boilers in place of inefficient boilers to those who are most vulnerable including qualifying private homeowners and tenants who receive certain means-tested benefits.
If you qualify, you could have your old and inefficient boiler replaced by a new, energy-efficient, condensing boiler, with an A-efficiency rating. This means that your home and water would be heated much more efficiently. It will use less fuel and will therefore significantly reduce your home energy costs. In addition to saving on your heating bills, you will also reduce your carbon emissions and therefore your carbon footprint, and so you’ll be doing your bit for the planet too.
