Affordable Warmth scheme offers

As the winter weather begins in earnest, I have been contacted by E.ON who are encouraging people to check if they are eligible for free loft and cavity wall insulation and discounted boiler replacements under the Government’s Affordable Warmth scheme. 

To take advantage of these offers, you must own your own home and either you or someone else living at the property must be receiving one of the qualifying benefits listed here.  You do not need to be an E.ON customer in order to apply. 

If you are eligible then you may be able to:

  1. purchase a replacement A-rated gas boiler for only £240 (including VAT) if their current boiler is faulty or broken, a saving of around £2,000 off the typical cost of a new fully installed gas boiler.
  1. apply to E.ON for free cavity wall and loft insulation which can save a typical household a further £275 a year on their heating bills.
  1. Get up to £1,000 towards the cost of replacing your old inefficient gas boiler if your boiler works, but is inefficient.
