Affordable Warmth Scheme To Be Opened Up Even Further
The new stage of the ECO3 Funding scheme went live on October 1st, 2018, bringing with it new funding which will focus on improving the energy efficiency of domestic properties. This includes funding towards the cost of replacing inefficient or broken Gas, Oil and LPG heating systems for properties experiencing fuel poverty.
As part of the ECO3 funding allocation, 15% of the total amount has been set aside for rural properties, primarily aimed at individuals and families who are off the national gas-grid. So, households with old, inefficient oil boilers could potentially benefit massively from the scheme.
With the introduction of ECO3, even more people are now eligible to access the funding. If any of the criteria on the list below of qualifying benefits are met, you will be eligible for funding:
- Child Tax Credit
- Working Tax Credit
- Universal Credit
- Pension Guarantee Credit (not eligible if the customer only claims Pension Savings Credit)
- Income Support
- Income-based Job Seekers Allowance (JSA)
- Income-related Employment & Support Allowance (ESA)
- Disability Living Allowance
- Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
- Attendance Allowance
- Carer’s Allowance
- Severe Disablement Allowance
- Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefits
- War Pensions Mobility Supplement
- Constant Attendance Allowance
- Armed Forces Independence Payment
- Child Benefit
Since launching in April 2013, the ECO funding scheme has been responsible for funding the installation of 2.34 million energy efficiency measures in 1.83 million properties.
The Green Deal Factory Ltd can offer funding from the ECO3 scheme towards a replacement boiler, and as a Worcester accredited boiler installer, they install A-rated Worcester Greenstar 25i ErP and 30i ErP combi boilers, as well as system boilers such as the Worcester Greenstar 24Ri, if you have a hot water cylinder at home.
