A boiler grant is a non-repayable free or subsidized boiler replacement. This is part of the Government (ECO) Scheme set up to help with home improvements for low-income households. It provides qualifying homeowners with access to improving home efficiency in order to reduce the cost of energy bills, as well as carbon footprints when heating their homes.
If you receive means-tested benefits and your boiler is a minimum of 6 years old, you may be eligible. Once you determine if you qualify, you will be asked to complete a short survey and a local, approved company will install your new boiler.
The boiler grant is decided by how efficient your home is and is determined by an energy assessment. In some cases, a small fee may be required. The funding is offered for oil boilers, gas boilers, lpg boilers as well as electric storage heaters.
