Free storage heater grants are provided by the Government’s Affordable Warmth Scheme.
This is a part of ECO, (the Energy Companies Obligation) which has been set up to reduce the UKs carbon footprint and provide home heating grants for uk homes
Affordable Warmth Scheme
The Affordable Warmth Scheme was introduced in 2013 to reduce the heating bills for Low Income Households on qualifying benefits.
This scheme focused on :
- Replacing old inefficient electric storage heaters with FREE new modern, energy efficient storage heaters.
- Insulating homes to a minimum standard with FREE Wall & Loft Insulation.
- Replacing old or broken Gas boilers for a A Rated boiler for a third of the cost.
Free Storage Heaters – New for Old
You may qualify for free storage heaters under this scheme if :
- you receive certain benefits AND
- you have faulty or inefficient storage heaters in your home.
You can enjoy up to 4 Heaters replaced in your property completely Free of Charge
How are Free Storage Heaters Grants calculated?
The size of your storage heater grant is based on the type and size of your home, how many bedrooms you have, how many external walls it has and several other factors.
Do all Properties Qualify for FREE?
Larger properties usually qualify for free storage heaters, but flats and others smaller ones may have to contribute to the cost of installation.
This is especially true if you have a high number of heaters relative to the size of your home.
Our installers will only know the size of grant awarded after your free no obligation survey has been carried out.
If you are not happy with the amount of any contribution, you can withdraw your application without cost.
Remember though, any contribution you make will be offset by lower heating costs in future.
