Free, and heavily subsidised replacement boilers are available via ECO, a Free Boiler 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 that simple!
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!
2019 ECO3 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 jonesgroupenergy.com where you can get a fixed online quote for a new replacement. You can even spread the cost with low monthly payments which include 0% interest FREE credit.
