ECO4 Boiler Scheme
Welcome to the ECO scheme, Boiler upgrade measure, a government-backed initiative designed to improve the energy efficiency of homes across the United Kingdom.
The scheme not only helps homeowners reduce their carbon footprint but also leads to substantial savings on energy bills.
The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is a government scheme to reduce the UK's carbon emissions and tackle fuel poverty. The latest iteration, ECO4, continues this mission by providing boiler grants to eligible homeowners. These grants help upgrade older, inefficient, non-condensing boilers to modern, energy-efficient models.
Features of the ECO4 Boiler Scheme
All boilers installed under the ECO4 scheme come with the following:
- A-rated (combi) condensing boilers
- A timer to optimise heating schedules
- A room thermostat for precise temperature control
- Thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs) on all radiators, except those in the room containing the thermostat
After installation, hydraulic balancing optimises the central heating system and ensures efficiency.
To qualify for the ECO4 Boiler Scheme, you must meet the following conditions:
- You own a home with a broken or inefficient non-condensing boiler
- You receive at least one type of benefit, such as Universal Credit or LA Flex (For households without benefits)
How to Get Started
If you meet the Eligibility criteria, the next step is to determine the extent of your boiler's inefficiency and the potential for energy savings. This can be done through a quick assessment by a qualified professional.
- Initial Assessment: A certified installer will visit your home to assess your current heating system.
- Approval: Once approved, you will receive detailed information about the grant and the type of boiler you qualify for.
- Installation: An ECO4-approved installer will replace your old boiler with a new, A-rated condensing boiler.
- Post-Installation Checks: The system will undergo hydraulic balancing to operate at peak efficiency after installation.
Benefits of the ECO4 Boiler Scheme
- Reduced Energy Bills: An efficient boiler can significantly reduce your energy bills.
- Environmental Impact: Lower energy consumption means reduced carbon emissions.
- Improved Comfort: Modern boilers operate more effectively, providing consistent heat and improving the comfort of your home.
