Free boiler grants

Free boiler grants are now available throughout the UK. 

Grants for replacement gas boilers are now available in the UK. The A Grade condensing boilers which are energy efficient and lower the cost of gas central heating are being installed via the Government boiler upgrade & replacement grant scheme.

The free boiler 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 the UK. It is Government-backed and funded by the 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.

Free Cavity Wall Insulation

Free Cavity Wall Insulation

Free cavity wall insulation grants

Free cavity wall insulation has been re-introduced in the UK as part of a new home energy saving government insulation grant scheme. Currently cavity wall insulation is free for everyone in the UK for a limited period.

The cavity wall insulation that is installed as part of the free insulation grant scheme is not foam or wet it is a man made fibre similar to loft insulation, but finely chopped so as to fit in between your walls. This acts as a protective layer against the cold. It is moisture proof and cannot pass dampness from wall to wall via the cavity.

Installing wall insulation is like putting a coat on your house. The insulation keeps the heat in, meaning that you can have your central heating on for less time, or turn in down to a lower level. This costs you less in gas / fuel bills and reduces harmful emissions which are released into the environment. Cavity wall insulation also keeps your home cooler in the summer.
