FAQs

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1
What is the Energy Company Obligation (ECO)?

The so-called ‘Big Six’ energy companies have made funding of £1.3 billion per year available as part of the Green Deal scheme. This funding is available to make energy-efficient improvements to most properties.

2
Why should I make my property more energy efficient?

The more energy-efficient your home is, the less energy you use. This means you will save money on your energy bills while reducing your carbon footprint and helping to reduce the impact on the environment.

3
Why should I replace my boiler?

If your boiler is old it can be very inefficient and you could be wasting up to half the gas you pay for! Get it professionally replaced by using the funding available to you and make sure it is an A-Rated appliance for the very best in energy efficiency. See if you qualify for a FREE Boiler and Installation or Contact Us today for a Free Survey.

4
Is ECO a loan?

No. ECO is a grant to provide funding which can be used for improvements to the energy efficiency of your home and does not need to be paid back. ECO is not available for all energy efficiency work and will sometimes depend on certain eligibility criteria. If you have any questions please contact us on 01254-505095 however, please be aware that as part of their job, your DEA/GDA (Domestic Energy Assessor/Green Deal Advisor) needs to show you what ECO funding you qualify for during the assessment.

5
Do I have to pay for my free boiler to be installed?

No. The ECO funding used for your free boiler also covers the installation of the boiler and the removal of your old one. You do not have to pay for anything.

6
How do I apply?

If you choose the Eco Grants UK Company to carry out your assessment we will carry out any required technical surveys and application forms for the funding. All of our qualified DEA/GDAs are equipped with iPads that have the full Green Deal Application software installed. This means that you can see exactly what is available to you and what application is being made for funding, all from the comfort of your own home. There is no obligation or charge for this service.

7
Is it only for people receiving State Benefits?

No. There are three main parts to ECO and the Eco Grants UK Company will ensure that you can access the correct ECO funding. Typical energy efficiency measures that anyone can apply for are those which are particularly expensive or more specialized than standard improvements, such as loft and cavity wall insulation. The Eco Grants UK Company is concentrating on improving standards and efficiency in those properties that are most in need of insulation. If you know your property has solid walls or is known as a System Build or ‘non-Traditional’ please get in contact.

8
What does a condensing boiler do?

A condensing boiler is far more efficient than older boilers. It not only uses less fuel, but it makes more efficient use of the fuel it does use. Older boilers might only use 60% of the fuel it uses to produce heat, whereas a condensing boiler is designed so it can efficiently use more than 90%.

9
Can customers who recieve ECO Funding still switch energy suppliers?

Yes. You can still change your energy supplier at any time.
