eco boiler funding 2020
Under the Governments ECO Scheme 2020, qualifying home owners could have their old in-efficient boilers replaced free of charge or subsidised.
No doubt that if you’re reading this you are already aware of the heating and energy efficiency grants available on the Government led ECO3 Grants Scheme. If not then hopefully we can give you a little information to help you better understand the scheme and all that it has to offer. There’s some exciting changes coming to the scheme for 2020 including Full Central Heating Grants.
DO I QUALIFY?
BOILER OVER 8 YEARS
who qualifies ?
To qualify for the funding available then you must meet the qualifying criteria set by the scheme.
Let us explain,
Funding is available to Homeowners across the UK who are in receipt of one of the qualifying benefits OR live with somebody who is in receipt of one of the qualifying benefits. We would need to install separate energy efficiency measures alongside the central heating system such as insulation measures. Please see below a list of the current qualifying benefits on the ECO3 Scheme.
Child Tax Credits
Working Tax Credits
If you receive the correct combination of income-related benefits, including tax credits, income support, ESA or JSA, DLA, PIP, Universal Credit (& others) then you could have your old boiler replaced with a brand new boiler for little, to no cost.
As well as receiving the correct combination of benefits, your current GAS boiler must be at least over 5 years old. If it is less than 5 years old, the scheme makes an assumption that is is more cost effective to repair your old boiler, than it is to have it replaced on the boiler grant scheme.
Some of the benefits mean that you will qualify for a boiler grant automatically, with no other requirements. Some others you may need to have an extra qualifying component such as being responsible for a child under 16, be of a certain age etc.
FUND MY BOILER
Do not recieve benifts, no problem. You may qualify for a free boiler from us as long as you take out our homecare plan. The only criteria is that you must be a homeowner and your boiler is atleast 8 years old or over.
