What Happens After You Qualify For The Free Boiler Scheme?
The costs of heating your house can be huge, and if you are on a tight budget or limited income, then getting a new boiler can be a worry. Thanks to the government-backed free boiler scheme, now you can reduce the cost of heating your home by replacing the old inefficient heating system.
Under the government boiler scheme, it is possible that you could qualify for a grant to have the old inefficient boiler replaced without any charge and then begin to enjoy savings of up to £300 a year.
What is the free boiler grant scheme?
Under the scheme, the major energy firms are obligated to provide grants for replacement boilers to those who qualify for the free boiler grants. The ‘Big Six’ energy suppliers offer the grants through the Government ECO3 Scheme, delivering you a brand-new boiler free or a subsidised cost.
This scheme is open to UK homeowners, and you can also benefit from it just like many already have. The government boiler scheme could see you provided with a provided a new central heating system installed, including a central heating boiler and control panels, radiators and associated pipework.
Under the current scheme, ECO3, the criteria for qualifying for the free boiler is that your existing boiler must be seven years old. Boilers under seven years old are excluded as the scheme regulations will be more cost-effective to repair the current rather than replace it under the scheme.
