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.

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.
