Grants Currently Available for New Boilers

Here at Th!nk Energy here in Yorkshire we are constantly looking for ways in which we can help our customers save on their energy bills.

One way is to install a new 'A' rated condensing boiler which could save you up to £300 each year on energy bills. The good news is that there are grants currently available to cover the full cost of supplying and installing a new energy efficient boiler. These grants are from a government backed scheme called Energy Companies Obligation ( ECO) and in most cases the loans provided do not have to be repaid.

Th!nk Energy can carry out a assessment to find out if your household qualifies for an ECO grant and we are even willing to waive the cost of the assessment. A full assessment is required to access these grants. Grants are currently only available to cover installation and supply of new boilers- not for full central heating systems. New boilers typically cost between £1,500 and £2,500 but installing a full central heating system would cost more. Upgrading to a new central heating system could save even more money on fuel bills.

Even if you don't qualify for a grant Th!nk Energy can arrange a variety of finance packages/ loans so you can spread the cost of your new boiler over a number of years. Indeed a new energy efficient boiler could be yours for as little as £20 a month.
