Here are some of the measures which will make up a package under ECO4
Poor insulation in UK homes is a prevalent issue that affects millions of people across the country. In fact, research shows that around 38% of homes in the UK have inadequate insulation, with many of these being older properties that were built before modern insulation standards were introduced. This lack of insulation leads to significant heat loss, with poorly insulated homes losing up to 40% of their heat through the walls and roof. As a result, heating bills can be high, and many households struggle to keep their homes warm during the winter months.
First Time Central Heating Eco Grants Direct sare available to any household (homeowner or private renter) who currently have electric heating, gas/electric storage or no heating at all. If you receive one of the qualifying benefits you may be eligible.
To qualify for a First Time Central Heating Eco Grants Direct your home MUST HAVE an existing mains gas supply from this date. IF you do not have a gas line then we can install an Air Source Heat Pump.
Before replacing a heating system, the scheme mandates that the fabric of a property, including walls, floors, and roofs, must be assessed. Upgrading an old boiler with a more efficient one can significantly enhance the energy efficiency of your Eco Home Grants.
Boilers are categorised by efficiency ratings of A-G, similar to other domestic appliances. In their literature, modern boilers must have an A-rating, indicating their high efficiency.
