  • Receive Income Related Benefits
  • Oil, Gas, LPG or Electric Supply
  • Boiler 7+ Years old

You can be in receipt of any 1 of 6 benefits to qualify for a free oil, gas, LPG boiler or electrical heating grant. Do you receive any of the following income-related benefits including, universal credit, working tax credits, pension credits, child tax credits, income-related ESA and income-related JSA. If so the chances are you qualify for a FREE A-rated boiler grant.

Under the current scheme your boiler must be over 7 years old to qualify automatically for a FREE boiler grant. Boilers under 7 years old are excluded as the scheme makes the assumption that it will be more cost effective to repair your current boiler, than to have it replaced under the scheme.

Don't Claim Any Benefits?

Don’t worry if you or anyone in your household is not in receipt of benefits you could still qualify for a discounted boiler, click for a quote.

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?

If you are a homeowner living in your property, with a 7+ year old boiler and current receipt of one or more of the listed benefits, you qualify to apply.

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.

Thank you so much!

Without boiler grants it would have been a very, very cold winter for me and my family. I cannot recommend the service enough.

How do I qualify for a free boiler grant?

Qualifying homeowners, and tenants in private rented property (but not those in council run properties), who claim one or more of the listed benefit types could be entitled to a free replacement boiler grant under the Government’s ECO3 Scheme. If you qualify, then the process will be handled end-to-end by our team of professional energy advisors. Don’t worry if you don’t qualify for a free boiler grant; you may still be entitled to a subsidised boiler or a discount off a new boiler installation.

Free boiler grants are provided by the ‘Big Six’ energy suppliers – Scottish Power, British Gas, E.ON, EDF, SSE and nPower – through the Government ECO3 Scheme, delivering you a brand new boiler for free at a fraction of the price. The scheme is open to UK homeowners and some tenants, and you could take advantage, just like many households already have. To find out if you qualify, simply enter your postcode; it won’t take more than 60 seconds.

There are a few requirements that you’ll need to meet in order to qualify for the government ECO3 scheme. First of all, you must be a homeowner (or private tenant) . As well as this, it’s vital that your boiler is at least seven years in age, since it is deemed to be more worthwhile to repair newer boilers rather than completely replacing them. Lastly, you must be in receipt of one or more of the listed benefit types to qualify for the homeowner boiler scheme:

  • Child Tax Credit
  • Income related Employment Support Allowance
  • Income based Job Seekers Allowance
  • Income Support
  • Pension Guaranteed Credit (excludes Savings Credit)
  • Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit
  • Disability Living Allowance
  • Personal Independence Payment
  • Attendance Allowance
  • Carer’s Allowance
  • Severe Disablement Allowance
  • Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefits
  • Ministry of Justice Benefits (administered by Veterans UK)
  • War Pensions Mobility Supplement
  • Constant Attendance Allowance
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment
  • Child Benefit

If you or anyone within your household receives one or more of the above listed benefit types provided by the UK government, then it’s highly likely that you’re in line to receive a free boiler grant through the government boiler scheme. All you need to do is take a few moments to find out whether you’re eligible today, and then we’ll handle the rest.

Even if you aren’t in receipt of any benefits, there are alternative options for example “Buy now, pay later” with discounted costs, please contact us for further information.

What are the benefits of the free boiler grant scheme?

The homeowner boiler scheme was initiated in order to provide eligible occupants across the UK with efficient and affordable heating. Our research has shown that boiler models that are over seven years in age only operate at around 65% of their full efficiency. This means that as much as 35p of every pound spent on heating costs is being wasted. As a comparison, your new A-rated boiler would run at no less than 90% efficiency, meaning a loss of 10p per pound at most.

Aside from the financial benefits, having a new boiler installed can also be extremely beneficial to the environment. Using a new energy efficient boiler means that less energy is required to heat a home and therefore less carbon emissions are produced. This has the impact of reducing an individual household’s carbon footprint, in the process aiding the government’s overall aim of drastically reducing carbon emissions across the UK.

There are clearly a range of benefits to this free boiler grant scheme in the UK, so if you qualify through having a boiler older than seven years, by being a homeowner/private tenant, and by currently receiving one or more of the major government benefits listed on our site, then it is well worth beginning the application process. Even if you do not qualify for a boiler grant, there may still be helpful access to a discount on your next boiler, which could still be of great financial benefit in terms of having a brand new energy efficient boiler installed, as well as major energy cost and environmental savings.
