As part of the Ryedale Energy Saver Scheme, Margaret Hazel and her husband received a fully funded brand new A-rated combi-boiler and full central heating system to replace their old inefficient 30-year-old boiler.
The capital for the Hazel’s fully funded upgrades were secured by YES Energy Solutions from the Government’s ECO Scheme, with the shortfall made up by Ryedale District Council providing additional funds from their Energy Efficiency Grant.
Margaret said: “We’ve noticed a big difference, it’s just lovely to have hot water and heat there all the time, it’s just marvellous.
“We were very pleased when we found out it was fully funded because we wouldn’t have been able to pay for it, so it was just fantastic.”
Mr Hazel was delighted with the install and told us:
“I’ll never look back now, I couldn’t wish for anything better. Now we don’t need to turn the thermostat up, you can’t touch the radiators they’re so hot and now the whole house is warm.”
The scheme helped qualifying residents save money on their energy bills as well as cutting CO2 emissions from homes in the area, with many householders now benefiting from a warmer, cosier home.
Mr Hazel said:
“Our old boiler had to be serviced often, and when we were looking at the gas bills, the boiler was using a lot of gas, which wasn’t necessary. We’ll have to wait for what our next gas bill will be but I’m sure they’ll be a big saving in it.
“You couldn’t wish for a better team, they were all really helpful and went through the boiler with us and showed us what to do. I’m going to send them all a box of chocolates they were all that good!”
The Ryedale Energy Saver Scheme is delivered by YES Energy Solutions on behalf of Ryedale District Council.
The Ryedale Energy Saver Scheme funds a range of energy efficiency measures to be installed in homes of qualifying residents, which include the install of boiler upgrades as well as insulation measures funded through the Government’s ECO scheme with supporting capital from the Council’s Energy Efficiency Grant and the Property Improvement Loan.
