What’s on offer and how do I get a boiler grant Sunderland?
Grants cover the initial outlay of cost for something you would otherwise spend your money on. On most occasions a grant won’t cover the full price, but this is free money after all and not to be scoffed at. Energy grants are offered by the government and national suppliers, to help subsidise the initial cost of implementing efficiency improvements. In the winter there are also payments available to help with the cost of heating your Sunderland property.
What kind of boiler do you need to have?
With the data underneath you can view just how homes are heated within Sunderland and compare this to your own heating system. If you’re using an expensive kind of heating system including oil, maybe you should think about changing to biomass or lpg for efficiency and to cut bills. Even gas and electricity costs continue to rise over the years to come therefore it could possibly be time to swap your boiler for enhanced efficiency or think about another form of heating.
The good news is everyone in Sunderland 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.
Cavity wall insulation ISN’T right for everyone
Cavity wall insulation is easier and cheaper to install than external wall insulation. Ewi is designed only for properties that either a) do not have cavity walls, or b) are ‘hard to treat’ e. G. The cavities are too small to insulate. If your house has cavity walls that can be treated, then you won’t qualify for free external wall insulation. If you’re not sure what type of insulation you need, please get in touch with one of our energy surveyors.
To work out which type of insulation is right for your home, read our guides to loft insulation and cavity wall insulation Sunderland. Before taking up any deal, you’ll need to read the small print for each insulation offer to make sure you and your home are eligible. Companies typically need to be able to insulate at least two thirds of your loft space, and exclude properties with more than 100mm of loft insulation already in place.
