Boiler Grants

Boiler Grants

What is it?

Boiler grants are part of the Energy Company Obligation (ECO); a government scheme funded by utility companies including the 'Big Six'.

This grant helps low income households in England, Scotland and Wales to become more energy efficient and lower heating bills. Eligible households can apply for a grant to install a new A-rated boiler for free using a Gas Safe Registered Boiler Grant Installer.

Can I get it?

As long as you own your own home or you are a tenant living in privately rented accommodation (and you have your landlord's permission) you might be eligible for a 100% boiler grant to replace your old boiler.

When you apply for a free boiler grant you'll be contacted to check you meet all the necessary criteria. They'll check what benefits you receive (in the case of Working Tax Credit or Child Tax Credit they'll need to make a note of your annual household income too) and confirm your status (whether you're a private tenant or own your own home). You will also be asked for the make and model of your current boiler, how old it is and whereabouts it's located.
