Could You Qualify For 100% Boiler Replacement Grant?
Right guys listen up, I’ve stumbled upon an amazingly big deal which I know so many of you are going to benefit from! There’s a strong chance that you could be eligible for a 100% boiler replacement grant to replace your old boiler, and the best bit is its unbelievably easy to apply!
The boiler grant is part of the Energy Company Obligation, a government scheme funded by utility companies, and has basically been put in place to help low income households in England. So if you qualify, and have a boiler that is 8 years old or more, you can apply to have a brand new boiler fitted for free!
To qualify you need to have your own home, or you should be a tenant living in privately rented accommodation. You must also be in receipt of one of the following benefits:
- Pensions Credit
- Child Tax Credit (with an income of £15,860 or less)
- Working Tax Credit (with an income of £15,860 or less)
- Income Support
- Income – based Job Seeker’s Allowance
If you fit the criteria then all you have to do is fill in a short online form which you can find here http://www.boilergrants.co.uk/qualify-boiler-grant.php. The next step is to arrange your free grant survey and you’re good to go!
Boilers are one of the biggest contributors to your energy bills, but the more efficient your boiler is, the less energy it takes to produce heat. Ultimately a shiny new boiler replacement could save you between £130 and £300 a year! Now that sounds like a good saving to me.
For those of you who don’t quite meet the criteria, then all is not lost. There’s an alternative solution for you too and its called the Green Deal Finance Scheme. It has been described as a ‘loan against your home’ which you can use to carry out approved and recommended home improvements.
The idea behind this government scheme is to provide homeowners with the opportunity to become more energy efficient. But we all know what that translates to. Yes thats right, cheaper bills!
Benefits of taking out the Green Deal Finance include:
-There’s no upfront cost
– It’s open to everyone
-You’ll save money on your energy bills by becoming more energy efficient
– The loan will be paid back through bill savings
– You won’t pay back any more than you make in energy bill savings.
If this sounds like something you would be interested in, then go ahead and request a visit from a Green Deal assessor to get your property assessed. You will then be advised on which home improvement measures are eligible for Green Deal Finance.
If you don’t qualify for a boiler replacement grant then this is definitely your best bet! I hope you guys find this useful and I’ll keep my eye out for any other similar deals out there.
