Free Boiler Grants Scheme


Boiler Grants - Who We Are And What We Do

We have many years experience helping individuals, landlords and families in their journey to securing a new boiler. Our dedicated team offers assistance from the very start of the journey with the initial application, to helping you secure a Gas Safe Installation from approved installers.

Because we work alongside a network of approved UK installers, we can help you to access the grants much more efficiently than others and in usual circumstances, you can expect to have a replacement boiler installed from start to finish in less than four weeks.

Each installer on our network has the necessary certifications required in order to carry out the work, we regularly monitor your feedback to ensure that the highest levels of service are being achieved. Funding for the free boiler scheme will vary between properties, a free EPC (energy performance certificate) will need to be carried out in order to determine this.

Remember, this service is 100% free to use. We do not charge you for the application, there is no obligation to proceed.

Boiler grant funding is currently available for gas boilers only. Those with Oil/LPG should contact their local councils.

Why is the Scheme Free?

Due to climate change, the UK Government is attempting to drastically cut carbon emissions and replacing old, inefficient boilers with modern, A-rated models is just one way they can make a considerable reduction.

In addition, the efficiency of modern boilers means they are cheaper to run, drastically helping to reduce the heating bills of low-income households and those at risk of fuel poverty.

However, for many households the cost of acquiring a new boiler can be significant and it’s for this reason the Government and some of the largest energy companies in the UK provide boiler grants. These enable households to acquire a subsidised boiler and in some cases, a completely free boiler.

Energy Companies Obligations Scheme (ECO Scheme) Boiler Grants

Although there are various forms of financial assistance available, the ECO Scheme remains one of the most popular and widely used forms of boiler grants.

The scheme is funded by the energy companies including British Gas and Eon and is available to households that meet the specified eligibility criteria.

We are part of the grant distribution process and can help you navigate through all of the essential steps so that you can have your old boiler safely removed and replaced with a modern, efficient boiler.

2021 ECO3 Grant Update

Unfortunately, grant funding is no longer available for landlords/private tenants under new ECO3 rules. If you require a new boiler for a tenanted property, we'd recommend visiting heatable.co.uk where you can get a fixed online quote for a new replacement. You can even spread the cost with low monthly payments.

Free Boiler via Government in 2015

If you want to learn more about the ECO boiler scheme, please visit the GOV.UK website. Free boilers are funded by the 'Affordable Warmth' part of the energy company obligation.

How Do I Qualify for a Free Boiler?

If you receive the correct combination of income-related benefits, including tax credits, income support, ESA or JSA, DLA, PIP, Universale Credit (& others) then you could have your old boiler replaced with a brand new boiler for little, to no cost.

As well as receiving the correct combination of benefits, your current GAS boiler must be at least over 5 years old. If it is less than 5 years old, the free boiler scheme makes an assumption that is is more cost effective to repair your old boiler, than it is to have it replaced on the free boiler grant scheme.

Some of the benefits mean that you will qualify for a boiler grant automatically, with no other requirements. With some others you may need to have an extra qualifying component such as being responsible for a child under 16, be of a certain age etc. You can view the full criteria here.

If you don't claim any benefits, you could consider paying monthly for your new boiler. Visit heatable.co.uk to get a fixed online quote.

How is my New Replacement Boiler Free?

Because we are part of the EU, the UK has been set very large targets to reduce the carbon footprint of its housing stock. ECO, or, the Energy Company Obligation plays a huge part in hitting this target. Built in to everybody's bills is a small percentage of money which is paid towards ECO, the Green Tax. This money is controlled by the Big Six energy suppliers and they are now obliged by the UK Government to fund the installation of free boilers and home insulation in to low-income households and those who are most vulnerable. If you do not currently receive benefits, and your boiler needs to be replaced, you could consider getting a boiler on finance.

Reduce Your Gas, Oil & LPG Bill For Free

By replacing your old, in-efficient or broken boiler with a brand new, a-rated boiler you could reduce your energy bills by up to £300 per/year. Think of it like this - If your current boiler is 65% efficient, this means that for every £1 you spend on your heating, 35p is quite literally being wasted. By comparison, modern boilers are 90% + efficient. This means that a new boiler will have wastage of less than 10p for every £1 which you spend. If you receive the correct combination of benefits, you could have your old gas, oil or LPG boiler replaced for free via the ECO boiler grant scheme.

Boiler Scrappage Scheme

The boiler scrappage scheme was a program which used to run and gave customers cashback for replacing their old, in-efficient boilers. Unfortunately, that scheme is now no longer available and applications are closed. If you claim benefits, apply for the ECO scheme. If you don't get any benefits, considering paying monthly for your new boiler.

How Much Do New Boilers Cost

This depends on the type of installation you need. A typical combi boiler swap or regular/system boiler should cost no more than £1,500-£2,500. If you require a more complex conversion, your new boiler will cost somewhere in the region of £3,000 and sometimes higher.

What is the Best Boiler?

It's hard to say exactly, but, if you're after a reliable boiler with a long warranty, you can't go too wrong with a Viessmann. They're German engineered and are growing in popularity. If you're obtaining a new boiler via the ECO scheme, you may not get a choice on the boiler model or brand. Read Heatable's guide on the best combi boilers.
