Boiler Grants for Grimsby and Cleethorpes Residents
The ECO 4 Boiler Grants scheme is a government initiative aimed at helping low-income families in Grimsby and Cleethorpes improve the energy efficiency of their homes. The scheme allows eligible homeowners to replace their old, inefficient boilers for free, providing them with a new, more efficient boiler that will help reduce their energy bills and carbon footprint.
To qualify for a new boiler on the ECO 4 scheme, you need to meet the following criteria:
- You must be the homeowner
- Your current boiler must be broken or inefficient
- You must receive at least one benefit, such as Income Support or Housing Benefit
This means that the scheme targets those most in need of help with their energy bills.
All newly installed boilers under the ECO 4 scheme must meet certain efficiency requirements. These include:
- Being condensing boilers
- Including a timer, a room thermostat, and thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs) on all radiators outside the room containing the thermostat
- Hydraulic balancing of the central heating system after installation
These requirements ensure that the system is as efficient as possible and that energy is not wasted unnecessarily.
If your property has an inefficient heating system, such as a non-condensing boiler, you may be eligible for additional funding to upgrade to an efficient boiler. This will help reduce your energy bills and your carbon footprint, benefiting the environment. The EPC rating of your home is a measure of its energy efficiency. If your home has a low EPC rating, you may be eligible for funding for insulation, draught-proofing, or other energy-saving measures to improve its energy efficiency.
