Free Boilers For Veterans

Free Boiler Grants for UK Veterans

Both veterans who own their own homes or are private tenants could be in line for a free boiler grant which could help them heat their home more efficiently. Under a Government-backed ECO Scheme, if you are a veteran in receipt of certain qualifying benefits you may be eligible for help to get a new boiler for the property you own, or to even have central heating fitted for the first time if you are currently living in private rented accommodation.

As part of the boiler scheme, the ‘Big Six’ energy suppliers, which includes SSE, EDF Energy, British Gas, npower, E.ON UK and ScottishPower, are obliged to provide funding for grants towards the installation of new energy efficient boilers for those households who have boilers that are at least 7 years old. And these grants are open to veterans, or anyone living permanently in your household who is in receipt of one of a range of eligible benefits.

Even if you don’t own your own home, there is still an opportunity to apply for funding as a tenant if you live in privately rented accommodation which does not have, and has not previously had a central heating system. As a veteran in receipt of one of the qualifying benefits, you would be the applicant rather than your landlord, although you would require the landlord’s permission in order to proceed with a first time boiler grant application. As a tenant in council owned properties, housing association homes, or other local authority run social housing, you would not be eligible for the scheme.

Why apply to the boiler scheme for veterans?

The installation of a brand new ‘A’ rated boiler will bring you huge savings on your energy bills – you could save as much as £300 per year. With a new boiler you’ll also avoid all the costs of

servicing, maintenance, repairs, insurance and other related costs that come with keeping an old boiler running. 

All installation and aftercare is handled by us, so you will have peace of mind about your boiler for many years to come. Use of an energy-efficient boiler will also reduce the carbon footprint of your household, bringing overall benefits for the environment.


How do I join the free boiler grant scheme as a veteran?

Veterans, people serving in the Armed Forces and their dependents may be able to claim a range of benefits in the UK, any of which could make them eligible for a free boiler grant. These include:

  • Child Benefit
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment
  • Personal Independence Payment
  • Jobseekers Allowance
  • Tax credits
  • Ministry of Justice Benefits (administered by Veterans UK)
  • War Pensions Mobility Supplement


Free Boiler Grants have supplied thousands of UK residents with new energy-efficient boilers. If there is a veteran living permanently in your household in receipt of any of the benefits mentioned above, then you could be eligible to join the free boilers scheme. The scheme could be open to you if you, or anyone permanently living with you, receive any of these other benefits:

Many of the qualifying benefits have more recently been replaced by Universal Credit, so if you are a homeowner and receive Universal Credit, then there is a good chance that you will qualify for a boiler grant. There is also the other prerequisite for boiler grants and that is the fact that your boiler must be at least seven years old. 

Alternatively, if you are a veteran living in private rented accommodation, and in receipt of one or more the benefits mentioned above, plus you live in a property that has never had central heating, you could be eligible for help.

How much will a new boiler save me?

If we consider an old boiler may only be operating at 65% of its efficiency you could literally be wasting 35p of every pound you spend on energy.

The good news is that new boilers with an ‘A’ rating can operate at around 90% + efficiency which translates into less than 10p wastage. So, you could save as much as £300 per year by replacing your old and inefficient boiler with a brand new one with an ‘A’ rating. Imagine what you could do with that money!

If you are in receipt of any of the benefits mentioned, just fill in your postcode to confirm whether you are eligible or not for a FREE boiler grant.

How is the boiler grant free?

Under the government boiler scheme, it is the leading energy companies who are under the obligation to provide the grants for replacement boilers to those who qualify.

Our fees for removal, installation and aftercare are sourced through the scheme and its grants, so you won’t have to pay out to cover our costs during the process.

This allows you to get your brand new boiler at a fraction of the cost.

What is the ECO scheme?

The Government-backed Energy Companies Obligations (ECO) scheme places an obligation on the largest energy suppliers – including npower, E.ON and British Gas, SSE, EDF and Scottish Power – to help make British households more energy efficient and help reduce their energy bills.

The ECO scheme offers free boiler grants, insulation grants, air source heat pump grants, solar panel grants & more.

By offering free grants towards new energy efficient boilers to eligible households helps reduce the cost of heating the home and contributes towards the overall drive to reduce carbon emissions. Those who benefit from the ECO scheme with a free boiler grant could save several hundred pounds on their heating each year.

Does the boiler grant have to be repaid?

Boiler grants are free and do not have to be repaid at any time. There are no hidden terms and conditions to worry about.

The scheme aims to help low income households improve their home energy efficiency and any grants are non-repayable. Those eligible for a grant will either get a free or a subsidised boiler replacement. In some cases a contribution may be required towards the cost of the new boiler, but this will be made clear from the outset, following a free assessment at your home.

How long does installation take?

We understand that many of our clients will be eager to know exactly how long it takes for their new boiler to be fully functional in their home, particularly if your current boiler has issues.

Specific schedules can vary a little depending on availability of staff and equipment in your region at a given time, but in general, it should be no more than 2-3 months from the moment you apply through to completed installation.

What type of boiler can I get fitted?

Under the ECO scheme, you can have a brand new A-rated, energy efficient combi or system boiler fitted which will have an efficiency usually in excess of 90%.

We offer a range of boilers including Baxi, Worcester Bosch, Vokera and Ideal.

Will the boiler come with a warranty?

If you receive a new boiler through a boiler grant,  your installation will be covered by the same warranty you would receive from that boiler manufacturer.

The length of any warranty varies between brand and different boiler models but would usually be anything from 2-7 years. All aftercare will also be provided as part of the service to you.
