A growing number of families on low income, who are some of the UK’s most vulnerable households, don’t have the money to adequately heat their homes. The Government is attempting to address the issue with the Energy Company Obligation. Often shortened to just ECO, it’s a scheme that will help UK households lower their energy bills by becoming more energy efficient. We’ve put together some of the most important things to know when applying for a Free Boiler with Eco World.
Free boiler scheme is funded by the Government and the big energy companies
To help households on low income energy suppliers like e-On, British Gas, EDF Energy and Scottish Power have introduced ECO scheme through which they help families become more energy efficient by installing a A rated energy efficient boiler completely free of charge.
This grant is for both homeowners and private tenants.
If you do live in privately rented accommodation you will need to get permission from your landlord. Unfortunately you cannot claim the grant if you are living in a council property.
In order to qualify for free boiler, your boiler has to be more than 5 years old and you will need to be in receipt of specific benefits (and possibly meet additional criteria). You can find all of the details about this on Government’s qualifying criteria page.
