What is the Eco-Boiler Scheme?

Tenants and homeowners alike stand to benefit from a nationwide free boiler scheme thanks to the government’s most recent Warmth Allowance legislation. Free Boiler Grants are a one-stop Green Deal installer who receive government funding to replace old and inefficient boilers with more eco-friendly models.

If you qualify for a free boiler replacement, then our team will ensure that the process is fully taken care of on your behalf. We’ll install a new A-rated boiler in your home that’s efficient enough to save you up to £300 per year on heating costs, as well as providing any future aftercare completely free of charge. Over the past 15 years, more than 60,000 occupants have benefitted from the Government boiler scheme, and you could be eligible too!

How do I qualify for the Eco-Boiler grant?

The two initial points of qualification are that the grant is open to homeowners and private tenants, with the additional requirement that their boiler must be over 7 years old, as before that point it would be viewed as more cost-effective to maintain and repair the boiler rather than replacing it.

If you qualify for those two points, the free eco-boiler scheme is open to recipients of six different government benefits:

  • Child Tax Credits
  • Working Tax Credits
  • Pension Credits
  • Income Related ESA
  • Income Related JSA
  • Universal Credit

Anyone who receives one or more of these six benefits has a strong chance of qualifying for the current boiler grant, but even those who don’t may have an opportunity of interest.

Those who don’t qualify for a free boiler may still qualify for a significant discount on a replacement model. As well as handling the free boiler replacement process from start to finish, here at Free Boiler Grants we can also provide quotes to individuals looking at a potential discount. You can do this by entering your postcode here.

What are the benefits of applying?

It’s estimated that boilers over 7 years of age only operate at 65% of their full efficiency. This means that you could literally be wasting 35p of every pound you spend on energy. The good news is that newer boiler models with an A-rating are able to operate to at least 90% efficiency, which means less than 10p wastage per pound. Over the course of a year, this would mean some incredible savings for you as a bill payer.

The free boiler grant application on our site is both quick and easy. It will only take 60 seconds to check whether you’re eligible for the government Warmth Allowance. All you need to do is enter your postcode and then you’ll be directed to a brief 3-step process. Once you’ve answered a few questions about the type of house that you live in and any income-related benefits that are received by your household, our team of professionals will do the rest of the work.

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.
