At Union Technical, we have direct access to government grants and funding that will help towards the full or part cost of your new boiler and/or insulation.
What is the Green Deal Scheme?
The funding we have access to is part of the flagship Green Deal scheme. Home owners and tenants of private landlords could be eligible for this government funding.
The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme was introduced throughout the UK as part of the Green Deal scheme to help reduce energy consumption and help those who are facing fuel poverty. This funding supports vulnerable households who do not have the financial means to install energy efficient improvements in their home.
As part of this government scheme, you could be eligible for a free boiler, loft insulation, external wall insulation, internal wall insulation or cavity wall insulation. While some funding will cover the entire costs of these energy efficiency methods, you may be required to pay a contribution. You can speak with our team to discover exactly what funding is available to you in your situation.
What Funding is Available to Landlords?
New government legislation means that all privately rented housing properties must achieve a minimum EPC Band E by 31st March 2020 or face a fine of up to £5000. For landlords of social housing, a minimum EPC Band C rating is required by 2030, and in Scotland, properties must meet a minimum EPC Band D by 2020. As the landlord of a property, this responsibility lies with you to ensure that all energy EPC band ratings are met.
Don’t be caught out and get prepared now for these new minimum energy efficiency standards. We can work in partnership with you to access Green Deal scheme, ECO funding and other funding schemes to help you improve your energy efficiency ratings.
