What is the ECO4 scheme Leicester?

Commonly referred to as the ‘free boiler scheme’, the official name for the ECO4 scheme is the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) Scheme. This government-led initiative mandates major energy suppliers such as British Gas, EDF, and SSE to assist low-income and vulnerable households by replacing their inefficient or faulty boilers and enhancing insulation.

Now in its fourth phase (ECO4), it is imperative to inquire about your eligibility before it becomes too late. If you meet the criteria, the ECO4 scheme presents a wide range of energy-efficient measures at significantly discounted rates, and in some cases, even for free. These measures encompass boiler replacement, external wall insulation, cavity wall insulation, and more.

Is there any warranty included with a free boiler Leicester?

Irrespective of the brand you select (whether it is free or contributed), your newly installed boiler is accompanied by a standard two-year warranty. Should you opt to extend it, simply get in touch with the supplier to discuss a nominal fee for a five-year warranty.

How much will a government funded boiler replacement cost me?

Generally, there are only two instances where a small contribution might be necessary. Firstly, if you choose a Worcester Bosch or Vaillant boiler instead of the Ideal Logics that we install, there might be a discussion about a small contribution due to the higher cost of these premium brands.

Secondly, if your current boiler does not meet the gas safety regulations of Bradford, specific modifications may be required to fulfil the checklist. However, please rest assured that each situation is unique, and any contribution required will be directly discussed with you.

What if something gets damaged?

We take immense pride in our exceptional craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail. All our workers are fully insured, and in the unlikely event of any damages caused by our contractors, we will promptly replace the affected items.

How long does the entire process take?

From initial contact to installation, we prioritise a fast and efficient process. Since different funding options require specific information, providing it as soon as possible will expedite completion.

Will my new boiler be the same make as my old one?

In terms of performance and power, the replacement boiler will be equivalent to your current one. However, the brand may differ. The kilowatt (KW) rating will be matched, and the new boiler will be more efficient, leading to significant savings on your gas bills.

Do you qualify?

Wondering if you’re eligible? Finding out if you qualify for boiler funding under the government ECO4 scheme is easy. Simply answer the following questions:

  1. Are you a homeowner? 
  2. Is the bottom floor of your household suspended flooring (made up of floorboards and NOT concrete)? 
  3. Does anyone in the household claim benefits/tax credits (please see the list of benefits that qualify and ensure that one is claimed within the household)? 
  4. Is your boiler 7 years old (or older)?

If you answered YES to all of these questions, then you apply for free boiler replacement and installation.
