What’s the story behind A&D Carbon Solutions?
A&D Carbon Solutions is a company with a long and successful history. They started out as a small operation, but through hard work and dedication, they have become one of the most successful businesses within the heating and insulation industry whilst successfully reducing many clients’ carbon footprints.
The company was founded by two entrepreneurs, Alan Thomas and Dean Holloway. Their partnership began by providing heating solutions in 2001. They worked hard from the start to be standouts in their industry, so much so that other companies started head-hunting them for new opportunities. Their strong work ethic and commitment to perfection is unrivalled and it has led to their brilliant success.
As a result, A&D Carbon Solutions was born out of Alan and Dean's shared passion for helping others and making a difference. Their years of experience in the heating industry have given them the knowledge and expertise to provide the best possible solutions for their clients.
We're proud to be one of the leading eco-friendly heating companies in the UK and we're always looking for ways to improve our services. The energy industry has moved the focus from un-economical boilers and heating to more fabric-first retrofit insulation, a transition that A&D predicted quite a few years before it became legislation.
They started the company with the goal of providing high-quality installations and measures to individuals. Through their innovation and commitment to customer service, A&D Carbon Solutions has become one of the leading providers of renewable heating installations.
What is the ECO4 Scheme?
The Energy Company Obligation (ECO4) Initiative is a government-backed grant scheme available for individuals on benefits and low-income families (Under £30,000). All properties with an EPC rating of E, F and G can receive funding to install insulation measures and heating to increase the EPC rating.
Under the ECO4 initiative, applicable properties could have multiple measures done to ensure the EPC rating increases. Properties with an E rating can be supported to achieve a C rating. Properties with an EPC rating of F & G can be aided to raise their EPC rating to a D. The ECO4 initiative is applicable for both private homeowners and the private rented sector.
What is the LAD Scheme?
The Local Authority Delivery Scheme is a council-run scheme to upgrade the energy efficiency of your home, all properties with an EPC rating of D, E, F and G can qualify for both insulation and renewable measures. Homeowners, who can receive these fully funded and privately rented properties will have two-thirds of the costs covered under this grant.
The below measures are available for the customer to choose from:
Air Source Heat Pump
Cavity Wall and Loft Insulation
Internal and External wall insulation
Room in Roof Insulation
New Heating Controls
What is the BUS Scheme
Boiler-Upgrade Scheme (BUS) is a government-backed grant where customers can get support to partially fund a percentage of an Air Source Heat Pump installation within domestic properties. Homeowners can qualify for this scheme and can receive a £5000 voucher as a rebate from the government, although, any additional charges will need to be funded by the customer.
What sort of household qualifies for these schemes?
Private homeowners and privately rented properties can qualify if a member of the household receives a qualifying benefit or if the Local authority takes part in the LA Flex scheme. Although, it does depend on which grant you would like to apply for as the criteria of eligibility can differ within the different schemes.
What can A&D Carbon Solutions do to help?
A&D Carbon Solutions takes the stress out of the whole process, you would speak to one of our friendly advisors who will take all the relevant information. We would then send one of our in-house surveyors to the property to complete a retrofit assessment. We would then book out the installs with our teams, you deal directly with A&D throughout the whole process.
How do I apply for these schemes?
The funding for the free home energy improvements is paid for by Leading Energy Companies such as British Gas, SSE, Scottish Power, N-Power and so on. There is a quota they must fill for improving the energy performance of UK homes or they can end up facing large fines if they miss their targets. The main target is to reduce the UK’s household’s energy use on average, to improve this they aim to make generating heat cheaper (with new boilers) and maintaining heat easier (with insulation). The funding doesn’t come from the Government in the same way as Universal Credit does. The money for the home improvements comes from the profits of companies everyone is contributing to monthly, in our energy bills.
What other ways can I raise finance energy costs?
If you do not meet any of the eligibility criteria for the funding but still would like to have your EPC rate improved, then we do have a private service available where we offer 0% finance plans. Just contact us directly to discuss this in further detail.
