Generous funding for oil boilers, LPG and night storage heaters

31 August 2017

Do you have an oil, LPG boiler or night storage heater that needs upgrading? Or could your house benefit from cavity wall or loft insulation? If so and you are on low income or receive a means-tested benefit, you may be entitled to funding towards a new heating system or insulation.

Under the Energy Company Obligation (often called ECO), some low income households can get grants to cover the whole cost of cavity wall or loft insulation, and significant grants towards other improvements like new boilers. This part of ECO is called 'Help to Heat'. For the first time there are good offers available for homes heated with oil, LPG boilers and electricity.

You may still be entitled to help with the cost of these measures even if you don't qualify as a 'low income' household.

If you live in Bristol, Somerset, Wiltshire, Dorset or South Gloucestershire and think you, or someone know could benefit give the Home Energy Team a call on 0800 082 2234 to find out more.
