Free Boiler Scheme for Homeowners
If you’re a homeowner in need of a new boiler, help could be available to you today. You only need one person living permanently in your household to be in receipt of one of a range of benefits in order to potentially qualify under the Government-backed ECO Scheme.
As part of this boiler scheme for homeowners initiative, the ‘Big Six’ energy suppliers – 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.
Why apply to the boiler scheme for homeowners?
Applying for a boiler grant is easy and the benefits of doing so, if you are successful with an application, are many. The installation of a brand new ‘A’ rated boiler will bring, first and foremost, huge savings that homeowners will be able to start enjoying immediately. A new oil, gas or LPG boiler could save households as much as £300 per year on their energy bills.
Additionally, a new boiler installed as part of the boiler scheme for homeowners, will also mean homeowners won’t face all the usual costs of running their old boiler including servicing, maintenance, repairs, insurance and other related costs. With installation and aftercare handled by us, homeowners will have peace of mind that they have a quality trustworthy boiler for many years to come.
Other advantages of using the free boiler scheme for homeowners include the environmental benefits of an energy-efficient boiler, which will see an individual household’s carbon footprint reduced massively. Additionally, any home with a new boiler installed will be a more attractive option to buyers should they wish to sell at some point in future.
How do I join the free boiler grant scheme for homeowners?
Free Boiler Grants have supplied over 60,000 residents across the UK with new energy-efficient boilers. If there is anyone living permanently in your household in receipt of any of the following income-related benefits, then you could be eligible to join the free boilers for homeowners scheme too.
Child Tax Credit
Income related Employment Support Allowance
Income based Job Seekers Allowance
Pension Guaranteed Credit (excludes Savings Credit)
Working Tax Credit
Disability Living Allowance
Personal Independence Payment
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
Many of the qualifying benefits have more recently been replaced by Universal Credit, so if you are in receipt of that, then there is a very large chance you will qualify for a boiler grant for homeowners.
As well as owning your home, and receiving at least one of the qualifying benefits mentioned above, there is one other factor which must be met in order for you to fully qualify for the free boiler grant scheme. Your boiler must be at least seven years old, as before this point, it’s seen as more worthwhile to repair a boiler rather than completely replacing it.
To determine whether you’re eligible under the boiler scheme for homeowners, just enter the postcode of your property on our site and then fill out our 60-second application form.
What happens once I qualify for a boiler grant for homeowners?
It only takes moments to find out if your household qualifies for our free boiler replacement grants for homeowners. You could qualify for enough to fund the entire installation but in some cases you may need to make a contribution to the costs.
Once we have determined this, the grant application, survey, installation and aftercare will all be taken care of by us, so you have a single point of reference for anything related to your boiler installation rather than having to deal with multiple third parties. Don’t delay, save on breakdown and repair costs, insurance cover and future energy bills by applying today.
What if I don’t qualify for the free boiler scheme for homeowners?
If no one within the household is in receipt of any benefits, then this does not mean you have to miss out entirely, since Free Boiler Grants can still offer a number of beneficial discounts and subsidies for many applicants who don’t fully qualify. To find out what level of discount you may be eligible for, just visit our ‘Get a Quote’ page and fill out a brief discount quote form.
It is also possible that you could qualify for assistance under local authority ECO Flex rules which can provide boiler grants for those households not in receipt of qualifying State Benefits or Tax Credits. These help households who are living on a low income and are considered vulnerable to the effects of living in a cold home and could therefore be eligible for assistance under the Affordable Warmth Scheme. Each local authority has its own criteria for eligibility so contact them if you find you are not eligible for boiler grants for homeowners.
