- You must be the homeowner in the United Kingdom.
- Your boiler must be at least seven years old. This is due to the scheme assumption that it will be more beneficial to repair the newer models than replace them with the new boiler grant.

What is the benefit of a government boiler scheme?
Numerous households across the UK have taken advantage of the free boiler grant for single parents. It has helped many replace their old and inefficient boiler with a brand-new A-rated and energy efficient boiler that will have helped them save up to £300 pounds per year on heating costs. This is because many boilers that have been in operation for more than 7 seven years tend not to be particularly energy efficient. Many older boilers of this age may operate at around 65% of full efficiency, whereas a new and energy-efficient boiler usually operates at more than 90% full efficiency.
The saving does not end there, as a new boiler with all its associated guarantees and aftercare means that you are not required to pay the cost of maintenance, servicing, repairs, insurance, etc., for your boiler.
