This company was extremely easy to deal with. The staff I had dealings with were very helpful, especially Carlo. When there was a slight hiccup with the first installation company assigned to us, Carlo got on the case immediately and reassigned another company. The company they used were extremely professional. Overall I am very pleased with the whole process.

Another heating company in let me down and said they could not proceed with my heating conversion at the kast minute due to the fact i had a coal fired back boiler. I spoke to a few firms nobody would do it.i phoned Warm Front and spoke to Carlo, we can do that mate! 1 month later i have a new combi boiler , hot water on demand and a warm house for the first time in 13 years. I am over the moon and can't thank Carlo and his lads enough. They are true professionals who know exactly what theyre doing , very tidy and will be done before you know it. Incredible service and lovely people .Thank you so much Carlo and team. I will never forget what you have done .

Great service from Carlo who was there from start to finish helping my mother save at least £4000 on a full central heating system Carlo helped us get a very good company that was brilliant and installed the system within the week of coming to survey the job and only taking one day to install Would definitely recommend this service as when I was phoning up companies myself they either wasn’t turning up or telling us we wasn’t eligible or turning up and then hearing nothing from them again Once again 5 stars for this company

What Is The Grants For Wales Scheme?

The Wales Scheme Is part of ECO 4  fourth stage of the government’s Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme.

The main goal of this fantastic free grant is to support low-income households to upgrade their home  heating systems and insulation levels.

This will help vulnerable people to heat their homes cheaply and also to help the UK to reach its net zero goal by 2050.

If you are claiming a qualifying benefit , you should make an application for 1 or more of the  grants available below.

 

What Is The Benefits Of The Scheme?

  • You will save money on utility bills-  Help save the planet – You can get better heating,
  • Free loft and wall insulation- Smart thermal controls – Solar panels – Free air source heat pump –
  • All will be 100% funded by the ECO4 Scheme.

Are There grants for people Not On A Benefit?

There is a scheme called LA Flex that some UK councils are signed up to which allows people to apply for a grant without having to be on a benefit. The scheme is very sparse though and your council will have its own criteria. We recommend you make an application and we will try to assist you.

who pays for The Wales Scheme

All the Energy efficiency improvement measures on this website such are funded by all the large energy companies that are signed up to the ECO4 scheme.

In reality it is the fuel bill payer that is really paying for Eco Grants via a small levy that is placed on every fuel bill.

Do Back Boilers Qualify For A Grant too?

A free back boiler removal  grant is also available.

This grant scheme aims to encourage the removal of outdated back boilers and promote the adoption of more energy-efficient heating systems.

Please See Our BACK BOILER REMOVAL GRANT page

What Boilers are Fitted On The Wales Boiler Scheme?

Depending on your installer, there are many excellent models being fitted on this scheme.

All boilers that are fitted as part of the Boiler Grant Scheme come with a minimum 2 Year parts & Labour Warranty.

In some cases, you will get a 5 year warranty but you need to confirm this with your installer.

In most cases , for a small fee you can pay to extend your warranty to 5 or even 10 years.

What Is The Wales Scheme Eligibility?

The  Scheme eligibility for any property is dependent on the EPC rating.

Only  properties with an EPC grade of  E, F or G are accepted on the scheme.

This is because the Government only wish to upgrade the worst efficient homes.

Do you have to pay back any grant?

This is grant funding meaning you won’t have to pay it back if you’re eligible.
 
It is difficult to get a grant now but we recommend you put in an application.

Any Grants For Park Homes?

NO – We have been waiting for a couple of years for Park Homes to be included in the Free Eco Grants Scheme to no avail.

It seems the Government have no interest in helping people who reside in Park Homes.

I cannot see there being any in the future too probably because of their size and minimal carbon saved by insulating these homes.

Why do I need to have ventilation measures installed in my property?

 
When insulating a property it’s important to have adequate airflow throughout the property.
 
Eco 4 Funding requires that all installers install ventilation measures. These include mechanical ventilation such as extractor fans to the kitchen and bathrooms, trickle vents to windows, and under door cuts.
You will not get a grant if you refuse to have ventilation measures unfortunately.

Insulating homes

The scheme takes a fabric-first approach, which means it focuses on improving the building itself before installing new heating systems.

In fact, any home with an efficiency rating of ‘E’ or below will have to install loft, roof, and exterior-facing cavity wall insulation before improving any existing heating systems.

ECO4 Insulation Measures - Stop Heat Escaping.

A typical home without insulation can lose 33% of its heat through its walls and 25% through the roof?

Insulating your home properly can improve keeping the heat in and reduce heat loss.

Adding insulation to your loft, walls and floor will help you keep your home warm, wasting less energy and lowering your home’s carbon emissions.

 

 

WHY IS INSULATION SO IMPORTANT?

Consumer protection magazine Which? found that installing loft insulation can reduce your energy bills by up to £215 per year.

As heat rises, and in most houses more than 25% of the heat inside the home escapes through the roof, which makes loft insulation and room in roof insulation vital to improving your home’s energy efficiency.

An Eco4  survey involves the inspection of existing loft and wall  insulation. All loft insulation will be increased to 270 mm in order to improve the energy efficiency.

Loft insulation is effective for an extremely long period of time, with some loft insulation remaining effective for at least 40 years.

The Benefits Of Insulation

Well-insulated homes are much better for your health too.

There is no question that living in a cold home can cause health issues, and heighten pre-existing ones.

Insulating your home to the latest guidance also means that you can prevent damp, which can cause mould and mildew.

What Is The recommended thickness for loft insulation

The recommended thickness for loft insulation in the United Kingdom is 270mm.

 Topping up the loft insulation to 270mm allows you to benefit from reducing your heating costs and effectively increasing the energy efficiency of your home.

Can you get solar panels on scheme?

There are grants for free solar panels on this scheme.

Homeowners must meet income and property requirements to receive a 100 % grant for free solar panels.  In some cases a free heat pump installation is available too.

Only properties that are Off Gas and have an EPC of F or G will qualify. These properties represent the worst efficient homes which are prioritised for grant funding.

Under the ECO4 scheme, you may be eligible for free Solar Panel installation which can help you generate your own electricity and save you up to 70% on your energy bills.

How do I qualify for free solar panels ?

  1. On a low-income, vulnerable and a fuel poor household.
  2. Property owner or landlord.
  3. An inefficient heating system that has a E-G energy efficiency rating.
  4. Off Gas Home  that runs entirely off electricity  / Oil  / LPG 

Are There Grants For Landlords?

As a landlord, you may be eligible for an ECO4 grant if your tenants are in receipt of qualifying benefits.

They must be deemed to be on a low income, suffer from a health condition impacted by living in a cold home or are experiencing fuel poverty.

Your property will also need to be E Rated.

Are There Grants For Roofs / Windows & Doors ?

There are currently no grants or help towards the cost of replacement windows or doors either as both measures do not save any carbon.

However many private companies do offer scrappage schemes  which will discount your doors and windows  by a few hundred £ .

This is usually a marketing ploy and you are best advised to shop around to get the most efficient price.

We do find that local companies will give you the most cost efficient quotations for replacement windows or doors.

What is the nest scheme in Wales?

The Nest Scheme in Wales is a Welsh government-supported initiative that has been put in place to help reduce household carbon emissions and provide more energy efficiency measures to all Welsh homes. There is a scheme called Eco 4 which also covers Wales as well as the rest of the UK.

It Is Aimed Mainly at Homes That Are Claiming a Benefit.

The Nest Grant Scheme provides FREE home insulation, PLUS  upgraded boilers & renewable heating systems such as solar and heat pumps.

Is Nest Wales means-tested?

Yes- You need to be claiming a qualifying benefit to be able to get a grant. See above

Free Boiler Wales

What Is The Nest Scheme Eligibility?

The ECO4 Scheme eligibility for any property is dependent on the EPC rating.

Only  properties with an EPC grade of  E, F or G are accepted on the scheme.

This is because the Government only wish to upgrade the worst efficient homes.

Can I get a grant for a new roof in Wales?

Grants for a new roof are usually given providing your home falls into the category of being below living standards and the occupants of a property being at serious risk. You can apply for the Home Repair Assistance Grant but it is discretionary, so there’s a chance you could apply and be turned down.

Is there a grant for windows in Wales?

Currently, there isn’t a specific grants for double glazing or doors covered under the Nest Scheme in Wales.

You should take advantage of grants to improve your energy efficiency.

Can I get free insulation in Wales?

Yes but you will have to have your heating upgraded too.
 
Free insulation grants as a single measure have now ended in favour of a whole house approach.

Are privately rented properties eligible for energy efficiency improvements

Householders who own or privately rent their property are eligible for Nest energy efficiency home improvements.

For tenanted homes, signed landlord permission will need to be received prior to any work going ahead.

Are There Any Eco 4 Grants For Park Homes?

NO- We have been waiting for a couple of years for Park Homes to be included in the Free Eco Grants Scheme to no avail.

It seems the Government have no interest in helping people who reside in Park Homes.

I cannot see there being any in the future too probably because of their size and minimal carbon saved by insulating these homes.
