What is the ECO4 scheme Scotland?

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) Scheme, also known as the ECO4 scheme, is a government-led initiative commonly referred to as the “free boiler scheme”. It requires major energy suppliers like British Gas, EDF, and SSE to support low-income and vulnerable households by replacing inefficient or broken boilers and improving insulation.

To take advantage of the government’s ECO4 scheme, it is crucial to determine your eligibility before it’s too late. If you qualify, this scheme offers a wide range of energy efficiency measures at significantly discounted rates or even for free. These measures include boiler replacement, external wall insulation, cavity wall insulation, and more.

Will my free boiler Scotland come with warranty?

Your newly installed boiler, regardless of the chosen brand (whether it’s free or contributed), will come with a standard two-year warranty. If you desire an extended warranty, you can contact the supplier directly to discuss the nominal cost of a five-year warranty.

How much will a government funded boiler replacement cost me?

In general, there are only two situations where a small contribution might be required. Firstly, if you decide to opt for a Worcester Bosch or Vaillant boiler instead of the Ideal Logics that we install, a small contribution may be discussed due to the higher cost associated with these premium brands.

Secondly, if your household’s current boiler fails to meet gas safety regulations, certain modifications may be necessary to pass the checklist. However, rest assured that each situation is unique, and any required contribution will be discussed with you directly.

What will happen if something gets damaged?

We take great pride in our exceptional craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail, and all of our skilled workers are fully insured. In the rare occurrence of any damages caused by our contractors, we will promptly replace the affected items.

How long will I wait from initial contact to the installation of my new boiler?

Our main objective is to complete the installation with utmost speed and efficiency. From the moment you reach out to us until our dedicated team completes the installation at your doorstep, we will work seamlessly with you. You can speed up the process by ensuring you promptly provide us with the necessary information we need to complete the installation.

Will the replacement be like for like?

Although the brand may differ, rest assured that the replacement boiler will match the performance and power of your existing one. Moreover, the new boiler will offer enhanced efficiency, resulting in substantial 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.
