Get The Boiler YOUR Home Deserves for FREE
The scheme is open to a number of different qualifying resident types (including homeowners and some eligible pensioners). So it is important to us that our heating experts have the skills and experience to be able to fit your boiler to suit your home with the minimum of disruption. Through the scheme, the government are trying to help customers save hundreds of pounds on their annual heating bills by replacing your old boiler with a better performing one. This ensures more energy-efficient and cost-effective heating to every household that succeeds in getting funding from the free boiler scheme. The new boiler can affect your home insurance too as it is deemed much safer than an older unpredictable one.

Why is the Scheme Free?
The UK government has an obligation to reduce the carbon footprint and aid the reduction of global warming. Old and inefficient boilers are contributing to the amount of energy being lost because they take longer to heat your home. This means your bills are higher than they would be if you had a “greener” boiler.
To remedy this situation the government have introduced a scheme which provides grants for new installations of more environmentally friendly boilers, regardless of your ability to get credit if you have applied for a boiler privately in the past..
Not only will this save you money but it will also help save the planet so it really is a good initiative.
The ECO Scheme Could Provide You With A New Energy Efficient Boiler
It has fallen to the main energy companies to provide the removal of the older boilers and replace them with more energy-efficient boilers because the work must be carried out by qualified heating engineers.
We are a part of the grant distribution process and can help you through the necessary steps to have your older boiler safely removed and replace (with minimum fuss due to our professional and experienced team) with a more up-to-date boiler.
How do I qualify for a free boiler?
Qualifying homeowners, who claim one or more of the listed benefit types could be entitled to a free replacement boiler grant under the Government’s ECO4 Scheme. If you qualify, then the process will be handled end-to-end by our team of professional energy advisors. Don’t worry if you don’t qualify; you may still be entitled to a subsidised boiler or a discount on a new boiler installation.
The grants are provided by the ‘Big Six’ energy suppliers – Scottish Power, British Gas, E.ON, EDF, SSE and nPower – through the Government ECO4 Scheme, delivering you a brand new boiler for free or at a fraction of the price that it would usually cost. The scheme is open to UK homeowners, and you could take advantage, just like many households already have. To find out if you qualify, simply enter your postcode; it won’t take more than 60 seconds.
There are a few requirements that you’ll need to meet in order to qualify for the government ECO4 scheme. First of all, you must be a homeowner. As well as this, it’s vital that your boiler is at least seven years in age since it is deemed to be more worthwhile to repair newer boilers rather than completely replacing them. Lastly, you must be in receipt of one or more of the listed benefit types to qualify for the homeowner boiler scheme:
Child Tax Credit
Income related Employment Support Allowance
Pension Guaranteed Credit (excludes Savings Credit)
Disability Living Allowance
Personal Independence Payment
Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefits
War Pensions Mobility Supplement
Constant Attendance Allowance
Armed Forces Independence Payment
If you or anyone within your household receives one or more of the above-listed benefit types provided by the UK government, then it’s highly likely that you’re in line to qualify through the government scheme. All you need to do is take a few moments to find out whether you’re eligible today, and then we’ll handle the rest.
Even if you aren’t in receipt of any benefits, there are alternative options for example “Buy now, pay later” with discounted costs, please contact us for further information.
So Is My Boiler Costing Me More Money To Run Than It Should?
The homeowner boiler scheme was initiated in order to provide eligible occupants across the UK with efficient and affordable heating. Our research has shown that boiler models that are over seven years in age only operate at around 65% of their full efficiency. This means that as much as 35p of every pound spent on heating costs is being wasted due to an inefficient boiler. As a comparison, your new A-rated boiler would be expected to run at no less than 90% efficiency, meaning a loss of 10p per pound or less.
Aside from the financial benefits, having a new boiler installed can also be extremely beneficial to the environment. Using a new energy efficient boiler means that less energy is required to heat a home and therefore fewer carbon emissions are produced. This has the impact of reducing an individual household’s carbon footprint, in the process aiding the government’s overall aim of drastically reducing carbon emissions across the UK as a whole.
There are clearly a range of benefits to this scheme in the UK, so if you qualify through having a boiler older than seven years, by being a homeowner, and by currently receiving one or more of the government benefits listed on our site, then it is well worth beginning the application process. Even if you do not qualify for a boiler grant, there may still be helpful access to a discount on your next boiler, which could still be of great financial benefit in terms of having a brand new energy-efficient boiler installed, as well as the major energy cost and environmental savings that would follow.
