Government Eco Boiler Grant Scheme

Shortened to ECO, eco-boiler scheme refers to the Energy Company Obligation, a government-backed scheme that sees big energy companies in the UK provide a variety of families and individuals with a replacement boiler. Getting an Eco-Boiler for families will help to lower their energy bills, since they’re using more energy efficient boilers in their homes.

Both homeowners and tenants can benefit from the free government eco boiler. This is a programme that allows you to enjoy a free, more eco-friendly boiler. If you are eligible for the free eco boiler grants, our team of experts here at Free Boiler Grants will take on your project, and ensure the process is taken care of for you. With the eco boiler scheme, you’ll get an energy efficient boiler that will save you around £300 on heating costs per year.

Not only will we install a boiler absolutely free of charge, but also offer future aftercare. You might want to look at the reasons below that can make you eligible for an eco-boiler scheme grant. You will be joining the over 60,000 occupants who are beneficiaries of the government’s boiler scheme over the past 15 years.

What Makes Me Eligible for The Eco Boiler Scheme?

Two of the very first points that qualify you to receive a free replacement boiler include being a homeowner or a privately-rented tenant, as well as having a boiler older than 7 years. It would be more cost-effective to maintain a boiler younger than 7 years instead of replacing it. If you qualify for the above points, then you can get a boiler if you receive the six different government benefits below:

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

You have a high likelihood of qualifying for the eco-boiler grants if you’re a recipient of one or more of the six government benefits. However, non-recipients may have a chance of interest. You may still get a replacement boiler, not for free but for a discounted price if you don’t qualify through the above requirements.

Obviously, by having this government eco-boiler, you’ll experience huge savings on energy bills.

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.

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.
