Free boiler grants are now available throughout the West Midlands and the UK. The A Grade condensing boilers which are energy efficient and lower the cost of gas central heating are available via the Government boiler upgrade & replacement grant scheme.
The boiler replacement grant scheme comes under the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) - Affordable Warmth energy savings initiative. The central heating grant scheme was developed to lower gas bill and address harmful CO2 emissions across Scotland and the UK.
It is backed by the Government and major power companies including British Gas and Scottish Power.
Boiler Grants and funding for loft and cavity wall insulation are available for those on benefits, on low income or who live in fuel poverty areas. If you meet the grant qualification criteria for low income households and your existing gas boiler is not of the condensing boiler type - you can have a new, ECO friendly and energy efficient gas boiler installed for free, saving hundreds each year on domestic energy costs. New ECO Boilers can be installed in a matter of a few weeks.
Energy efficient boilers are one of the main ways to cut down energy usage in the home. Up to 80% of your gas bill is spent on powering your boiler. If your boiler is old there is a chance that you are wasting a huge chunk of your money.
Replacing your old boiler with an A-rated high-efficiency boiler and using heating controls can reduce your home's emissions - and could save you as much as £300 a year
The main advantage that modern boilers have over older models is that they are condensing boilers. Well maintained boilers burn fuel very efficiently.. A condensing boiler recovers more heat and sends cooler gases up the flue and is more efficient. Boiler replacement>>
