Dacorum ECO scheme

Summary

YES Energy Solutions is working in partnership with Dacorum Borough Council to provide funding towards heating system upgrades and insulation installs to residents in the area.

Scheme in detail

The scheme aims to improve the energy efficiency of Dacorum homes to help qualifying residents keep warmer and save money on their energy bills.

Measures in the scheme are fully funded in some cases by the Government’s Energy Company Obligation (ECO) Scheme and there is additional support for those on disability related benefits.

The following measures are available for eligible customers:

  • Boiler replacements
  • First time central heating systems
  • Loft insulation
  • Cavity wall insulation
  • Under floor insulation
  • Room in roof insulation

Safety is our main priority and the scheme is following the latest government guidelines in regards to coronavirus safety. Our friendly customer advisors can explain the procedures our installers have put in place to ensure safety of residents and staff.
