Heating Controls

A Brief Overview

Programmable thermostats are becoming commonplace in houses. Many people are discovering that simply switching to a programmable thermostat provides several financial benefits.

How does this Work?

  • In addition to being an excellent smart home gadget, programmable thermostats offer various benefits to heating systems.
  • Perhaps the most important advantage of a programmable thermostat, and the primary reason why many customers convert to one, is the cost savings.
  • With growing energy expenses, the best method to combat them is to reduce energy use.
  • Temperature adjustments are possible with programmable thermostats.
  • Depending on the season, you may save roughly 2% of your energy cost for every degree you adjust your thermostat.
  • You may also design a timetable that stays in place even while you are not at home.

Your Eligibility for this Grant

  • The loft must be accessible through a hatch and not be boarded. If currently boarded then it must be only a small area of the loft and you may wish to lift the boarding you have to proceed with the FREE grant.

  • The property should be located in England, Scotland or Wales and be heated by a gas, oil, LPG, electric boiler or electric storage heaters (ESH).

  • You must be the Homeowner, Landlord or a Private Tenant. Private Tenants must have their Landlord permission. Landlords must have an eligible ECO3 Tenant living in the property that requires insulation.

  • Also, Housing Associations can claim insulation grants if their properties are heated by any type of electric heaters and they have eligible ECO3 Tenants.
