Finance Options

Did you know there are government backed schemes which could mean you’re entitled to FREE or heavily subsidised insulation and boiler replacement services?

It’s true. Thanks to schemes such as Energy Company Obligation (ECO) and Affordable Warmth, help is at hand to ensure everyone is able to stay warm and cut their energy costs.

The helpful team here at Power Switch Energy can help guide you through the application process to ensure you maximise the amount of funding you’re entitled to.

Free Cavity Wall And Loft Insulation And Insulation Grants

Government incentives for insulating cavity walls, lofts and room in roof conversions are available. Depending on your circumstances you could benefit from subsidised costs or even get the work done for free! Getting insulation done properly will also see your energy bills start to tumble. A win-win all round.

Free Boilers And Boiler Replacement Grants

Replacing old or broken boilers can be expensive, not to mention a massive inconvenience. If you feel like you can’t afford a new one, there’s nothing worse than your boiler going “pop” in the middle of winter. We can help advise whether you’re able to benefit from government grants or free installation services to help your family stay warm.


How much you’ll have to fund yourself depends on your exact circumstances. In some cases the grant will cover the entire cost of your boiler or insulation work and you won’t have to pay a thing!

Generally a home will be eligible if certain benefits are being claimed or if the home is a low income household. Our finance partners can talk you through this in more detail.

This will depend on the size of your home and the space available, however all the boilers we install are of the highest standards and will be fit-for-purpose.

This will very much depend on what insulation your house already has, the quality of what’s already in-situ and the areas where new insulation is required. Typically, we help with cavity wall extraction, cavity wall insulation, interior wall insulation and loft insulation.

Whilst this isn’t a conclusive list, the chances are if anyone in your home claims one or more of any of these benefits, you’ll be eligible for a grant:
                – Pension credit
                – Child or working tax credit
                – Universal credit
                – Employment and support allowance (ESA)
                – Job seekers allowance
                – Income support
                – Disability living allowance (DLA)
                – Carers allowance

Depending on what types of benefit you’re on, we may need to review your latest benefit letter or paperwork. We’ll talk you through this though and you’ll have time to get everything in order before moving forward.

No! That’s right, we’ll claim the grant back through the energy supplier once the work is completed. It’s worth noting though that if your grant doesn’t cover the value of the work, you’ll need to pay your portion before work can commence.

Power Switch Energy works with some of the best funders of ECO3 schemes around. We can provide advice and guidance to make sure you get the right funding support for your needs.
