What are free boiler grants?
Free boiler grants are part of a government programme to provide low income households with a new boiler for free. They are available under the government’s ECO scheme, designed to help households improve their energy efficiency, reduce cost and live in a warmer, healthier home.
Qualifying home owners and private tenants throughout the UK who claim means tested benefits could have their old and in-efficient boilers replaced completely free of charge, or heavily subsidised.
Reduce your heating bill for free!
- Receive a brand-new boiler completely free of charge
- Reduce your energy bills
- Promote occupant health
- Never pay a penny back
- Installation costs covered
Old boilers may only be operating at 65% efficiency resulting in as much as 35p of every pound you spend on energy being wasted. Replacing your old boiler with a brand new one could save you £300 a year.
Support your health
A warm home is about more than just comfort. Maintaining a healthy temperature in your house will also help to support your overall wellbeing.

There are a few requirements that you’ll need to meet to be eligible for a free boiler. Firstly you need to be a home owner and your boiler needs to be over 8 years old.
