Under the Governments ECO Scheme in 2017, qualifying home owners and private tenants throughout the UK who claim the correct combination of means tested benefits could have their old in-efficient boilers replaced completely free of charge, or heavily subsidised.
The grants are funded by the 'Big Six' energy suppliers and are non-repayable which means you do not have to re-pay the money back at any time in the future. Millions of home owners throughout the UK have already taken advantage of the free boiler scheme, and millions more could still claim. You can see if you could qualify using our simple online application form.
All of the free boiler installations are carried out by approved, qualified and fully insured gas safe registered companies and what's more, they will also guarantee the boiler and its install for years to come.
Only those in receipt of certain benefits will fit the criteria to claim a free boiler grant. Also, the boiler which is hoping to be replaced must be at least 8 years old (non condensing), or, be between 5-8 years old but carry a fault which effects its overall efficiency and operation. It must be deemed by an engineer to be beyond 'economical' repair.
The style of property in which you live is also taken in to consideration to, the older and more in-efficient your property is, the more funding it will yield to go towards the grant. If you have a very efficient property, you may need to contribute a small amount to cover the cost of the install.
Finally, you must be on a mains gas, oil or LPG supply. Free Boiler grants are now available to those in off gas areas.
Our simple 2 minute online application which will determine if you could claim a free boiler through the 2017 ECO scheme. If you do, we can put you in touch with an approved member of our network who can assist you with the installation. The service is 100% free to use and we've already helped over 60,000 happy customers.
The amount of funding which can claim for your grant is determined by how efficient your property currently is. If you qualify online, a free survey will need to be completed of your home which will look at things like your current boiler type and insulation levels etc. In many cases the boilers are free of charge.
Older boilers are very in-efficient in comparison to their modern day equivalents, they waste much more energy and require a lot more fuel in order to generate the same level of heat and/or hot water. Typically, by replacing an old boiler, you could save up-to £300 a year on your bills. By using funding which is available through the ECO scheme in 2017, you could your old boiler replaced free of charge.
It's all well and good getting a brand new, free a-rated boiler. But, if you can't control how and when it heats your home you may not feel the full benefits. With all free boiler installations, you will also be provided with new heating controls where necessary which will allow you to time, program and change its functions so that it's only switched on when you actually need it.
Because we are part of the EU, the UK needs to reduce the 'carbon footprint' of its housing stock dramatically. The Energy Company Obligation has been put in place to make the 'Big Six' energy companies fund the installation of home efficiency measures such as free boilers, and insulation.
Grant applications can be very complicated, so, we've built a super easy online system which will determine if you could claim within a matter of minutes. We've also build an approved, qualified and insured network of free gas, oil & LPG boiler installers who will be able to assist you with your install.
