Electric Storage Heaters - Areas Covered

Currently these are the towns and locations we assist with Electric Storage Heater Funding in:

ECO3 stands for the Energy Company Obligation – It’s a scheme set up by the government that takes the profits from the main energy companies in the UK and puts them back into the homes of the UK population. In a nutshell, the big Energy Providers such as British Gas, SSE, EON etc. all have to provide funding to Alnwick homeowners living in low performing housing in regards to energy retention and energy creation. The funding covers free boilers, wall insulation as well as electric storage heaters. 

Because the major companies have to foot the bill, you’ll typically pay nothing and we get paid afterwards by the energy companies. You might have seen the term “affordable warmth” throw around, this is the section of ECO that’s responsible for looking after people’s homes. Those Alnwick homeowners that fall into the bracket of “Fuel Poor” or are at risk of Fuel Poverty are the homeowners the ECO3 scheme is set up to help. 

The “Free Electric Storage Heater” scheme is part of this overall ECO3 scheme, where you can receive new, more efficient electric storage heaters to replace your existing ones. It’s only appropriate to swap out like for like, so if you’re currently using Electric Storage Heaters to heat your home, this is the route for you. Alternatively, if you have an existing central heating system such as a boiler with radiators, then you can also apply for a new boiler too. 

Typically, the more benefits we can provide to your home, the more funding you’ll be eligible for. So if we’re only replacing the electric storage heaters and your house is one of the few in Alnwick  that’s already great at retaining heat and you’ve got all the insulation measured already installed there could be a small charge that’s heavily subsidised.

However if your property could benefit from Cavity Wall insulation, external wall insulation, under floor insulation or loft insulation then it’s likely that we can install that too and you wouldn’t have any costs at all. We should mention that if you’re only getting the electric storage heaters, there’s usually not any costs associated – it’s only in some cases where we’re going above and beyond the requirements for ECO3 measures. 

In order to qualify for a free electric storage heater and insulation grant in Alnwick you need to meet certain eligibility criteria. You can find out if you qualify or not by filling out the form at the top of this page and a member of our team will be in touch to guide you through the application process.
