Free Boiler Grants for Park Homes
Thanks to the UK Governments Energy Company Obligations (ECO) Scheme in 2018, qualifying park home owners and tenants could have their old in-efficient boilers replaced completely free of charge, or heavily subsidised.
If you qualify, we can arrange for a local, approved company to undertake a survey and to complete the installation.
Living in a park home
Often referred to as a static mobile home – living in a park home is a popular lifestyle choice for many older people. Age UK estimate that there are over 100,000 older people living in park homes across England and Wales.
Park homes – especially older park homes – can be less energy efficient than other types of properties. It is estimated that 95% of park homes were built before 2005, when insulation standards weren’t included in the British Standard for Park Homes.
As a result they can be expensive to heat plus, with many sites not being directly connected to the mains gas grid, results in residents having to rely on more expensive fuels such as LPG, oil and electric to heat their homes.
Financial support is available, but you need to act quickly as time may be running out.
What’s on offer
Free grant funding for:
- Replacement of a new energy efficient LPG boiler
- Replacement of a new energy efficient oil boiler
- Replacement of new electric storage heaters
- Upgraded heating controls
These measures vary widely in cost to install and the impact they have on the energy efficiency of the property.
Who can claim a free boiler?
If you are in receipt of the correct combination of income-related benefits, including pension credit, tax credits, income support, ESA or JSA, then you could be entitled to free grant funding to have your old boiler replaced with a brand new A-rated boiler. The grant could cover the entire cost of the replacement, if not, you will be advised if a small contribution is required.
In addition, your boiler or heating system must be over fiver years of age to qualify. if you are not sure, do not worry we can help check the age of your boiler for you.
