Government Boiler Scheme in Sunderland

Free Boiler Grants is an organisation that operates a government-backed scheme that enables lots of families and individuals to acquire a completely free replacement boiler in the UK. If you are looking for access to the Government boiler scheme in or around Sunderland, we might be of assistance to you.

If you should qualify for this scheme, then no removal, equipment or installation fees will be required from you. We will handle the arrangement of your grant and proceed to offer a full installation with the help of our fully-certified home heating experts. It is under the provisions of ‘Affordable Warmth’ that energy companies committed to offering funding of free boilers for a portion of the UK population. The Government is pursuing this obligation by ensuring those who qualify receive the free boilers. Here’s where we fit, bringing this commitment to qualifying individuals.

How Do I Know if I Qualify?

For you to begin the application process for the Government boiler schemes in or around Sunderland, there are some simple considerations for you to take into account. You must be a homeowner or a private tenant with a boiler that is at least 7 years old or more. Any boiler before this point is judged to be more cost-effective to repair instead of replacing it.

After meeting the above requirements, you then qualify by currently receiving any of these six government benefits:

– Working Tax Credits

– Pension Credits

– Child Tax Credits

– Universal Credit

– Income Related ESA

– Income Related JSA

Being a recipient of one or more of the six government benefits types does not give a confirmation of a free A-Rated boiler grant, but it allows you the chance to apply for one. Simply enter your postcode on our website and we can then start the application process for your free boiler in or around the city.

What if I Don’t Qualify?

Not being a recipient of any of the six government benefits does not completely disqualify you from receiving a replacement boiler. You may be able to get one through a discount offer, as the Government’s Boiler Scheme allows other individuals to apply for a discounted boiler replacement. Just visit our Get a Quote page for details on how much you could actually receive as the discount.

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.
