Thanks to the government’s energy efficiency goals, people all over the country may be able to have a new boiler installed in their home free of charge or at a heavily discounted rate.
Essentially, the newer the boiler, the more efficient it’ll be, so it’s in the government’s best interests that your home is an energy-saving machine!

What is an ECO grant?
Free, and heavily subsidised replacement boilers are available via ECO, a Government Scheme which has been set up to help low-income households access home efficiency improvements to reduce the cost of heating their homes, and to reduce their carbon footprints. If you meet the benefits related criteria, and your current boiler is at least 5 years old (not condensing), you could qualify. It’s as simple as that.
Boiler Grants are non-repayable, this means you do not have to pay any money back at any time. There are no complicated terms and conditions. If you qualify for a grant, you can have a new boiler installed along with new heating controls (where necessary). The amount of funding you get is determined by the efficiency of your home, so an energy assessment will be carried out free of charge. In some instances a small contribution may be required.
Grant funding is currently available for gas boilers, oil boilers, lpg boilers and electric storage heaters. Free oil/lpg boiler funding is due to end in September 2019, apply now!
Who Qualifies For a Free Boiler?
If you receive the correct combination of income-related benefits, including tax credits, income support, Universal Credit, ESA or JSA, 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, oil or LPG boiler must be at least over 5 years old. If it is less than 5 years old, the scheme makes an assumption that is is more cost effective to repair your old boiler, than it is to have it replaced on the 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.
