Wolseley plumb centre logoWorking in partnership with Wolseley Plumb Centers, we are in certain circumstances, able to offer a new boiler for free to households in South Wales.

Under the Government’s recently launched Energy Companies Obligation (ECO) which runs alongside the Green Deal, accredited installers have funds provided by the big six energy companies, to cover the cost of a free boiler or free home insulation.  The ECO Affordable Warmth Scheme has been introduced to fight fuel poverty and reduce carbon emissions and if you qualify, you could have an ‘A’ rated energy efficient boiler, loft insulation or cavity wall insulation installed in your home…………… FREE OF CHARGE!

The ECO Affordable Warmth Scheme may be better for you than the Green Deal!

Under the ECO Affordable Warmth Scheme the FUNDING COVERS THE FULL COST of all products and labour required for the installation, as well as a FREE SURVEY to establish whether you qualify.

But unlike the Green Deal there are no loans to repay, so you get the full benefit of any savings in energy bills as a result of a better insulated home or a more efficient central heating boiler.

ECO Affordable Warmth Scheme eligibility criteria

To qualify for a free boiler or free home insulation with the Affordable Warmth Scheme, you must: Live in your own home or a privately rented one, Social housing is excluded from the Affordable Warmth Scheme but other Government sponsored schemes may be available.

Receive certain state benefits

Qualifying benefits under the Affordable Warmth Scheme include state pension credit, child tax credit, income-based job seeker’s allowance, income-related employment and support allowance, income support and working tax credit.  Some of these state benefits have conditions attached such as also having parental responsibility for a child under the age of 16 or being in receipt of a disability allowance.

Modern condensing boilers are very efficient and in broad terms the Affordable Warmth Scheme covers practically every other type of central heating boiler including back boilers.  If your boiler is more than ten years old or has a square external flue, or if the pilot light stays on even when the boiler isn’t operating, it is likely that your boiler qualifies under the Affordable Warmth Scheme to be replaced free of charge.  Some of the faults with boilers which are covered by the Affordable Warmth Scheme are: problems with the pilot light or the boiler not lighting properly, the boiler making banging noises, leaking gas or water and if your boiler is corroded – but there are many other faults included and a free technical survey can determine this.

To see if YOU qualify for a free boiler , just contact our help line.  It takes just a few minutes to find out if you are eligible.

Affordable Warmth Scheme for Landlords

If you are a private landlord you can also enquire about a free boiler or free insulation as your tenant may be eligible under the ECO Affordable Warmth Scheme.  This means that you could have a new ‘A’ rated, energy efficient central heating boiler or energy efficient insulation fitted in your property completely free of charge.  What’s more, there is no limit to the number of properties for which you can apply as long as the tenant qualifies and other criteria are met.
