What kind of boiler do you need to have?
What kinds of insulation are available through eco grants in St Helens?
with the transition from eco2t to eco3, there has been a big shift in focus from replacing older boilers and central heating systems to insulating homes as much as possible in an effort to reduce the carbon tonnes used in the uk. If you or someone in your home is in receipt of any of the qualifying government credits, you could be entitled to have your home insulated with any form of insulation it could benefit from – for example if your St Helens home does not have loft insulation or internal wall insulation you would be entitled to both under this funding.
The good news is everyone in St Helens qualifies for some kind of help. There are just certain improvements, such as replacement boilers, that are only available if you meet certain criteria based on income, receipt of benefits and tax credits. For a brand new boiler, you’d probably need to either live in a low-income or vulnerable property, receive pension credit or receive child tax credit with a yearly income of £15,860 or less.
What can I do if I have problems with my insulation?
Loft insulation is one of the simplest and most cost-effective methods of conserving heat in your St Helens property. It is an effective insulator for at least 40 years and when properly installed, could save you up to £225 per year in energy bills. Generally, loft spaces that are easily accessible and that do not have damp or condensation problems are best suited for loft insulation. If your loft has these issues, they will need to be corrected before insulation can be installed.
Not all St Helens properties are suitable for cavity wall or loft insulation; however most providers conduct a free survey. Homes won’t be suitable if…
you live in a flat and can’t co-ordinate with all the other tenants. Your home is timber or metal-framed, or made from natural stone or concrete. If your home has damp problems, these need to be rectified first.
Up to 35% of heat lost from poorly insulated buildings escapes through the walls. External wall insulation significantly reduces this heat loss, leading to a reduction in annual fuels bills by as much as 25%. External wall insulation systems also protect the building structure, prevent deterioration, and overcome thermal bridging and condensation problems. Newbuild in a newbuild instance ewi systems are the most cost effective way of achieving the current & future thermal performance requirements for the building regulations, achieving an internal environment with low temperature fluctuations and low heating requirements.
