Over 250,000 free boilers installed via ECO free boiler scheme
The Department of Energy & Climate Change have released the latest figures relating to the level of energy-efficiency measures installed across the UK via the ECO energy-efficiency improvement grant scheme.
The latest figures (released in August 2014) show the amount of individual measures (including free boiler replacements, home insulation products and double glazing) installed in homes throughout Britain up until June 2014.
Over 1/4 million free boilers have been installed since ECO boiler replacement scheme was introduced in 2013. More detailed information on free boiler installation statistics can be viewed on the DECC website at the link below.

Free boilers are still available via the ECO boiler replacement scheme. To qualify for a free boiler your existing gas boiler must be of a certain age or energy-efficiency level. In addition free boiler grants are for those on lower incomes or benefits.
