The government have high energy efficiency goals which in turn means its in the best interest of them to have all homes to be more energy efficient. People all over the country may be able to have a new boiler
installed in their home free of charge or at a heavily discounted rate.
Essentially, the newer the boiler, the more efficient it will be, so it’s in the government’s best interests that your home is an energy-saving unit!
Grants for boilers are amounts of money awarded to allow you to replace your current boiler without having to pay out for a new one all by yourself.
The grants are there for those with reduced access to the kind of cash needed for a new boiler
to help them save both money and energy when their current model isn’t as energy-efficient any more.
It’s all down to the government’s Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme
, which is an energy efficiency initiative that aims to reduce fuel poverty and decrease carbon emissions. Big energy companies have been told they have to help British homes improve their energy efficiency. Boiler grants are one of the ways they are doing this.
You could qualify for a free boiler grant or money towards a new boiler, depending on your combined your household income.
If you are eligible for a grant you don’t have to worry about paying the grant back either – there are no repayments and no confusing terms and conditions to catch you out.
