The Government gas boiler scrappage scheme also known as Warm Front, has been introduced to support households using worn out, less energy efficient boilers and who cannot afford to replace a brand new one.
Statistics have found that there are around 3.5m households in the UK who use sub graded boilers. These don’t just consume more energy, which makes your gas bill higher, but also have high CO2 emission rates. This government free new boiler scheme provides you with a £ 400 voucher which can be used to get brand new high quality A grade boiler.
Viva Eco is an ECO scheme accredited company that will take care of the entire replacement process. All you need to do is fill in a simple form and a member of our company will visit and check if you qualify for this grant or not.
Criteria to qualify for this scheme:
- You can be a residing in your own house or a rented accommodation. In case you are a tenant your owner would need to apply.
- Mostly it is issued for the gas boilers that are over 15 years old and the oil ones that are 25 years old.
- It should be in working condition, but for owners above the age of 60 years this condition is not valid.
- If your boiler is G rated or with no grade, it should have a fuel efficiency of below 70% of the standards.
Once you are found eligible for the voucher, the voucher will reach your home within 10 days. The voucher needs to be used within the 12 weeks of its issue to you and you would be required to send the voucher along with the invoice for installation to the Energy Saving Trust.
As per the regulations, to avoid any fraudulent usage of the fund, both the owner/tenant and the installer need to sign the invoice. Get in touch today by filling simple form and get a high quality boiler for your house.
