Government Backed Scheme

Qualify For a Boiler Grant?

Free Boiler Grants For Private Tenants

Private tenants who rent their property privately, not through a council or housing association, and are in receipt of any benefit including universal credit, working tax credits, pension credits, income-related JSA, income-related ESA or working tax credits may qualify for a free boiler grant. Your landlord won’t have to pay a penny and let’s face it, they probably will be delighted to be able to replace an old inefficient and unreliable boiler for free ‘A’ rated one. If you qualify, then all you’ll need is written permission from your Landlord.

You can tell your landlord that as a part of the Government’s ECO Scheme in 2017 that new boilers are being funded by the ‘affordable warmth’ part of the energy company obligation. All the ‘Big Six’ are involved so no matter where you live, whether you use oil, gas, LPG or storage heaters, your landlord may be entitled to a free boiler grant. For more information and to learn about boilers visit GOV.UK.

So How Do I Qualify?

Here at Free Boiler Grants, we are committed to supplying free boilers for UK tenants who are eligible for the scheme. You’ll have to be either a homeowner or living in rented accommodation as a private tenant to qualify for the scheme. Additionally, you must have a boiler that’s five years or more in age. With newer boiler models, we’ve found that it’s usually a lot more cost-effective to undertake a repair as opposed to completely replacing the unit.

Under the government boiler scheme, it’s highly likely that you’ll be eligible to receive a free boiler if you’re on benefits. As a reminder, the qualifying income-related benefits include:

  • Universal credit
  • Working tax credits
  • Pension credits
  • Child tax credits
  • Income-related ESA
  • Income-related JSA

All private tenants are entitled to a free boiler on benefits grounds. As well as this, it’s essential that your boiler fits within the required age range in order to fully qualify for the free boiler grant.

If you don’t qualify for a free boiler on benefits grounds, then there are plenty more options available to you. As well as providing free boilers for UK tenants, Free Boiler Grants are committed to offering discounts and subsidies to tenants who do not fully qualify. Just head to our ‘Get a Quote’ page and take a few moments to find out what level of discount you could receive from us.

How Does the Scheme Benefit Private Tenants?

Free Boiler Grants are committed to providing free boilers for UK tenants. By replacing your old boiler with a new energy-efficient model, you stand to make huge yearly savings on your energy costs. To put this into context, old and inefficient boilers only run at around 65% of their full efficiency, which would mean that 35p of every pound spent on heating costs is being wasted. With a new A-rated model, this figure will be cut dramatically, providing you with yearly savings of £300. Imagine what you could do with that money!

Whether you’re eligible for a free boiler on benefits grounds or you’re looking for some discounts on our range of boiler repair and replacement services, we encourage you to apply. It only takes 60 seconds to find out if you qualify for the government-backed free boiler scheme today.

Reduce Your Heating Bill For Free

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.
Therefore, 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 benefits just fill in your postcode to confirm whether you are eligible or not for a Free boiler.

How is the Boiler Free?

Under the government boiler scheme, it is the leading energy companies who are under the obligation to provide the replacement boilers to those who qualify.

Additionally, our fees for removal, installation and aftercare are sourced through the scheme and its grants, so you won’t have to pay costs to us at any points.

There really are no costs for you at any point.

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.

Home Owner information

If you are a home owner living in your property, with a 5+ year old boiler and current receipt of one or more of the listed benefits, you qualify to apply.

Also, if you are currently renting out a property with a 5+ year old boiler to private tenants in receipt of one or more of the listed benefits, you as landlord can apply.

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