How to Get UK Boiler Grants

Homeowners & tenants in the UK can get a financial grant toward the cost of replacing an old boiler if they are in the unfortunate situation of having a low income.

The UK Energy Companies Obligation ( AKA ECO Scheme) is made up of 3 obligations that are Affordable Warmth, Carbon Saving Community Obligation,Carbon Saving Obligation and the cash grant for a new boiler is funded by Affordable warmth.

The Home Heating Cost Reduction is available to those persons who meet the qualification criteria – mainly the old boiler has to be around 70% efficient and the claimant should be in receipt of a certain set of state benefits.

There is only a set amount of money available every financial year, so it means that the applicants who apply early are most likely to be successful.

Conservatory  Prices for your home

Orangery Prices in the UK vary significantly, depending on not only on the quality of the product supplied, but also the installer chosen to do the work. Doing your best to find online conservatories prices or cheap double glazing itself is natural, but choosing the wrong installer to do the work could end up wiping out any savings made if there are problems with the project.

If you are thinking of installing replacement uPVC windows or conservatories and are about to start looking for a contractor the choice is massive, with over 9,000 double glazing installers listed on “yell.com” there are an awful lot of contractors to choose from.  Even if you do a local search you may end up with over 100 installers in your area, so how do you choose a competent installer?

One of the first things to look for is whether the company is registered or certified as competent by one or more of the approved trade bodies in the UK. This is essential; using a non-certified or unregistered contractor is not advised, as either the contractor is unable to meet the minimum standards of competence required to become a member or they are not motivated enough to join. Either way, I believe it does not look good for the contractor.

There are four main trade and consumer associations in the UK which cover the Double Glazing / Replacement Window & Conservatory market, all offering high levels of installer regulation and consumer protection.

  • Glass & Glazing Federation (GGF) All Members must demonstrate previous relevant experience.
  • Certification & Self-Assessment (CERTASS) Contractor installations will be subject to annual inspection. This is a “competent person” scheme.
  • Fenestration Self-Assessment Scheme (FENSA) Contractors are independently assessed. This is a “competent person” scheme.
  • Double Glazing & Conservatory Ombudsman Scheme (DGCOS) This is a consumer protection scheme.

Before you embark on any type of installation work for double glazing windows, upvc doors or upvc conservatories make sure you at least look at prices from a general guide and check that your chosen installer is a member of at least one of the trade associations listed above.
