Grants for Free replacement boilers.
You do not need to be in receipt of benefits to qualify for a free boiler scheme for pensioners.
The government’s Energy Company Obligation scheme helps to reduce carbon emissions and tackle fuel poverty.
A new part of the scheme called ‘flexible eligibility’ enables local authorities to set targets for energy suppliers to help fund the installation of energy-efficiency measures in qualifying households.
You can apply for support if you live in a property that is expensive to heat, or if you or somebody living with you are vulnerable to cold.
Qualifying criteria include:
- Someone in your home receives a qualifying benefit
- Your Household is on a low income – less than £31,000 per year.
- Your property has an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of E, F or G, or provides a qualifying score through our assessment
- You or somebody living in your property have a health condition that can be exacerbated by the cold
- You or somebody living in your property are pregnant or have a child aged under 5 or somebody living in your property are aged over 65

This is all part of the Governments Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme.
There are still grants available for free boilers throughout the UK. We can install a free replacement, energy efficient boiler in qualifying households. Grants are limited and in some cases may require a contribution.
Grants are available for free replacement energy-efficient, condensing boilers with a full set of heating controls. This will reduce carbon emissions and can save around £300 per year on your fuel bills. This is part of the Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation (HHCRO) scheme or “Affordable Warmth” which was put in place to reduce fuel poverty across the UK.
All installed boilers will be high efficiency
A rated boilers which will reduce your heating bills and your carbon footprint, helping the environment as well.
You are more likely to get a free boiler if insulation is installed at the same time. We have to check that your home has the right level of insulation. It is important that any heat that you pay for is kept in your home. This will help to cut your bills even more.
Grants are designed to pay for a free replacement boiler. If you need a conversion e.g a conventional to combination boiler or you need your boiler moving then a contribution will be required. You will still get a grant towards this saving you £100,s.
