Plumb-Line contracted to Affordable Warmth project

As part of the Energy Company Obligations (ECO) to reduce heating bills, Plumb-Line is now working with Vaillant, the UK’s number one heating manufacturer, to help people with lower incomes to have warm and efficiently-heated homes.


This new Government scheme, known as Affordable Warmth, is helping people on low incomes by replacing or repairing, old, broken and inefficient boilers free of charge.


Adrian Brown, Managing Director of Plumb-Line comments: “The scheme aims to tackle some of the issues around rising energy prices by providing more effective and efficient heating. It is an excellent opportunity for people who need to replace their boiler but can’t afford the cost.”


To be eligible for the scheme, you need to live in your own or a privately rented property and receive certain benefits. For example, State Pension Credit or Child Tax Credit with relevant income below £15,860. Alternatively, if you receive a combination of benefits then you may also be eligible. All repairs and replacements are subject to surveys, which will be completed free of charge and e vidence of the benefits received will need to be provided at the time of the survey. This scheme does not apply to people in council or housing association properties.
