About the ECO3 free boiler grants and schemes – Free Boilers Redditch

The scheme is part of a government initiative called the Affordable Warmth Obligation – (HHCRO) and part of the ECO directive.

It provides numerous types of improvements including new and replacement boilers, heating systems, and insulation improvements to householders throughout the country. Qualifying for the scheme is easy; if you or anyone who lives at the property receive certain benefits and you have an old or broken boiler you could qualify. You may also be able to get a grant if you do not receive benefits under a discretionary scheme. To qualify under this criteria, you will usually be either elderly, have young children or have a serious illness, and be on a limited income, or have little or no savings.

The scheme is open to both owner-occupiers and tenants although not all improvement types are available to certain householder groups. Please contact us if clarification is required.

The current scheme runs until March 2022 although funding may be limited for some improvements.

It also ensures that improvements comply with ventilation and suitability requirements and that the property is improved in line with expectations. A retrofit survey will be carried out as part of the application and can be arranged by contacting your local installer or ourselves ensuring total satisfaction for all.

Free Boilers Redditch – General Summary

The schemes are a central government initiative and are primarily designed to help us. They help to keep us warm as well as helping to reduce the carbon emissions that are produced when we heat our homes.

The government has committed to reducing the UK’s total carbon emissions under ambitious targets. So, we will be one of the first countries in the world to achieve net-zero carbon emissions.

Reducing pollution and carbon emissions has had cross-party political support for many years with subsequent governments increasing the overall commitment to reduce fuel poverty and protect the environment.
