The Government’s ECO Scheme – Free Boiler Replacement
The ECO Scheme already offers measures to stop heat loss through the walls and roof. Now you can make a further saving by installing Free Under Floor Insulation under the ECO Scheme for absolutely NO COST and Receive A Free Boiler Upgrade.
If you receive a qualifying benefit and your boiler was installed before 2013 you may be entitled to a brand new ‘A’ rated boiler. You must be a homeowner.
The grant is funded by the energy companies and you DO NOT need to Re-pay it.
The ECO Boiler scheme was launched in 2013 to provide savings on energy bills for low-income households and reduce the UK’s carbon footprint.
With the new ‘A’ rated boiler we also install 3 temperature room valves were required free of charge. The boiler comes with a Two-Year Parts and Labour Warranty, along with a Gas Safety Certificate and a Minor Electrical Works Certificate. The Underfloor Insulation comes with a Twenty-Five Year Guarantee.
If your home has air bricks or ventilation bricks on the outside walls this may be a sign that you have a suspended floor suitable for Free Under Floor Insulation and as a secondary measure, you will receive a Free or Part Funded ‘A’ Rated Boiler Upgrade.
Combined savings of up to £470 a year are possible according to the Energy Saving Trust.

The insulation is regulated by Ofgem and as a qualifying party, under the ECO guidelines, there will be no charge for the Under-Floor Insulation and The New ‘A’ Rated Boiler, subject to a property assessment.
If your home does not have air bricks or ventilation bricks on the outside walls this may be a sign that you have a concrete floor. Not suitable for Free Under Floor Insulation.
Unfortunately, the scheme has been designed to install both the underfloor and boiler as a dual measure for free.
However, you can still benefit from a Part Funded Boiler, the contribution required is based on the type and size of the property and the current boiler system.
If you are not in receipt of benefits, we can still help through Local LA FLEX Scheme.
The LA Flex Scheme is designed to help those householders who are not in receipt of benefits but who are living on a low income and are vulnerable to the effects of living in a cold home. ... Local Authorities are now empowered to define their own eligibility criteria.
