THIS IS A GOVERNMENT BACKED SCHEME
If you want to learn more about the ECO boiler free grant, please visit the GOV.UK website. You can read more about what the energy company’s obligations provides for Free boiler funding.
WHAT ARE THE ENERGY COMPANIES OBLIGATIONS (ECO)?
In an attempt to reduce the number of carbon emissions produced by energy companies, the UK Government has set targets for energy companies to meet. Under the Energy Companies Obligations (ECO) agreement, energy companies are obliged to provide UK homeowners with ‘primary measures’ to use less energy.
WHAT IS A FREE BOILER GRANT?
The free boiler scheme was launched in January 2013 with an aim to reduce the UK’s energy consumption and provide grants to low-income households in order to help them improve the energy efficiency of their homes.
Under the Governments 2020 ECO Scheme, qualifying homeowners could have their old in-efficient boilers replaced completely free of charge, or heavily subsidised via a new boiler grant. If you qualify, we will contact you to complete the installation of your new boiler.
OUR BOILER AND HEATING RANGE INCLUDES:
Worcester Bosch, Vaillant, Baxi and many Eco Free Boiler exclusives. All our new boilers are A-rated for energy efficiency and tested.
Boiler Plus is a part of new government legislation that affects all homes in the UK from April 6, 2018. Launched by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, Boiler Plus looks at encouraging energy efficiency to meet the EU’s 2020 targets.
WHAT DOES BOILER PLUS MEAN FOR ME?
Alongside a range of other measures, this policy requires that all newly installed boilers must have an energy efficiency rating of 92% (ErP). Therefore, aiming to phase out poorly performing products and reduce carbon emissions across Europe.
All boiler installations must also have time and temperature controls fitted, allowing homeowners to save energy and money on unnecessary heating.
COMINATION BOILERS ON BOILER PLUS
In addition to these requirements, the new legislation will require all those fitting new combination (combi) boilers to include one of the following in their system:
1. Flue gas heat recovery systems= Incoming cold water is circulated around the top of the boiler, pre-heating water to use less fuel.
2. Load compensation= A system that allows the temperature of water in the boiler based on the actual room temperature.
3. Weather Compensation= Similar to load compensation, this feature changes the heating temperature based on the outside temperature.
4. Smart Controls= This feature offers intelligent, internet-connected heating control, providing automation and optimisation of your boiler usage.
Eco free Boiler UK works under the Government backed ECO scheme, making it more than easy to claim your free grant towards a brand-new energy efficient boiler.
