How to Get a Free Boiler?

If you’re in need of a new boiler, then you could be entitled to a free boiler grant for the replacement of your old boiler and installation of a brand new one, thanks to government provisions under the Warmth Allowance. While nobody can guarantee a completely free boiler replacement, nationwide, thousands of homeowners have already benefited from the free boiler grant scheme paying for the bulk of the process. There are several routes that you could go down in order to qualify for a free boiler grant in the near future.

The team of professionals at Free Boiler Grants are fully licenced to provide homeowners with an exchange of their old and inefficient boilers. Should you qualify, then our heating experts will take care of the entire process for you, from start to finish. This means that they will carry out the grant application on your behalf before removing your old boiler and properly fitting your new A-Rated boiler.

What do I have to do to apply?

While the government Warmth Allowance has been made available to a wide range of occupants around the UK, there are a number of qualifying factors to determine whether you will be eligible to receive the free boiler grant. Anyone who wishes to benefit from the Government boiler scheme must tick one or more of the following boxes:

  • If there are individuals within your household who receive any of the following income-related benefits:

– Universal credit

– Working tax credits

– Pension credits

– Child tax credits

– Income-related ESA

– Income-related JSA

  • If you’re a homeowner living in the UK.
  • If your boiler is more than 7 years old.

You won’t qualify for the free boiler grant replacement scheme if your boiler is under 7 years old. In these cases, it’s deemed that it’s more cost-efficient to repair your current boiler rather than having it completely replaced. Even if no one within your household receives any of the six income-related benefits, then you may still qualify for some level of discount on a new boiler based on the information that you have provided us with. The Warmth Allowance covers the provision of oil boilers, electric boilers and LPG boilers.

With Free Boiler Grants, you can access everything you need from one single company. It only takes 60 seconds to check if you’re eligible for our free boiler grant scheme. All you need to do is fill out your postcode on our site and then you’ll be taken through a quick series of questions about the type of house that you live in and the age of your boiler. Once we receive this information, our team will begin the process of replacing your boiler.

What are the benefits of the free boiler grant scheme?

In addition to getting a brand new A-rated boiler and saving on any maintenance and removal fees, there are also the ongoing energy efficiency benefits and the reduced costs this brings. It is reported that a boiler that is older than 7 years could already be operating towards 65% efficiency, which means that you’re effectively wasting 35p of every pound spent on heating costs.

In comparison, your new A-rated boiler would be in excess of 90% efficiency, which means less than 10p wastage per pound. When you multiply that out across a year, this can mean the average household saving somewhere in the region of £300 per year on energy costs, all from a process that you were given a free grant for!


Our team of heating experts will take care of the entire process from start to finish so that you don’t have to worry about anything. The free boiler grant is completely government funded and comes with no obligations or hidden costs. The team at Free Boiler Grants have gained more than 15 years of industry experience and provided services to over 60,000 households around the UK during this time.

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.
