Government Eco Boiler Replacement Grant Scheme

Homeowners in the UK, can gain a range of benefits from the government eco boiler replacement scheme. This scheme sees to it that big energy companies fund a portion of the UK with eco-friendly and economical home heating options. Labeled ECO – which is short for Energy Company Obligation – the scheme, available to be facilitated by Free Boiler Grants in your area, replaces a range of old inefficient boilers with new A-Rated boilers from known manufacturers. We can help you get a replacement boiler, as well as future maintenance, through a  free grant.

Here at Free Boiler Grants, we have been offering our services under the government eco boiler replacement scheme for 15 years now. We have gathered a wealth of experience in installing a broad range of boilers. You can enlist us to replace a gas, oil, electric or combi boiler, as well as other central heating types. We’ve helped thousands of clients replace their gas boilers, so you could be next to enjoy the benefits of the Government Warmth Allowance programme if you’re eligible.

How Do I Qualify for the Government Eco Boiler Replacement Scheme?

You must be a permanent UK resident, a homeowner, with an older inefficient boiler, in this case one over 7 years old since their efficiency is considerably lower after this point. Any boiler before this point is judged to be cheaper to repair than to replace. You also need to be a recipient of any of the following government benefits to be eligible for a free boiler grant:

  • Child Tax Credits
  • Working Tax Credits
  • Universal Credit
  • Pension Credits
  • Income Related JSA

If you don’t qualify for a free replacement boiler grant, you may still be able to get some level of discount on your boiler replacement.

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.

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.

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.

Who is eligible for a 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.

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.
