If you’re a homeowner with a boiler over seven years old, and are receiving an income-related benefit from the government, you could be eligible for a new energy efficient boiler through the free boiler scheme. Our experienced team at Free Boiler Grants are on hand to guide you through the entire process, from the initial assessment to see if you qualify for a new boiler, to the installation of the boiler (and removal of the old one), plus a complete aftercare to ensure you’re happy and keep things as simple and smooth as possible.
Why is the free boiler grants scheme in place?
The government introduced the ECO scheme in order to help reduce global warming and the UK’s overall carbon footprint. Older boilers are less efficient and contribute to the amount of energy being lost as they take longer to fully heat your home. This means that you are paying significantly more for your energy each year than you would if you had a “greener” boiler.
To help the situation the government-backed scheme saw the offer of grants as part of the ECO scheme, making it cheaper and easier for homeowners to get more environmentally friendly boilers. The grants are provided by the ‘Big Six’ energy suppliers – British Gas, Scottish Power, EDF, EON, nPower, and SSE – who are obligated to provide the funding.
How do we help?
We are part of the grant distribution process, meaning we can help determine whether you qualify for a free boiler. From there we can take care of the entire process for you, from the application for the funds to installing your new boiler, and safely removing the old one. As you are only dealing with us and no other third parties, the process is handled easily with no disruption, and you can enjoy your new boiler straight away with no fuss.
Also, as we provide the complete service package, you will benefit from a professional and experienced team who are fully trained, accredited and certified to guarantee that all work carried out is done so to the highest possible standard. It is because of this that we have become a leading supplier in the industry, as our customers trust us to provide them with the best advice and a high-quality installation.
How to tell if you’re eligible for a free boiler grant
To qualify for the free boiler grants scheme, you must be a homeowner, be in receipt of one or more of the listed benefits, and your boiler must be more than seven years old, as it would usually be more cost effective to replace it at this age than to attempt to repair it. It is always worth putting your details in and finding out if you qualify as even if you don’t, you could still be entitled to a subsidised boiler or a discount on a new boiler installation.
The scheme is open for you to take advantage of, as many homeowners have done already. If you or someone in your household receives one of these benefits you are part of the way there to being eligible for a free boiler grant.

Is your boiler costing you more money than it should?
Research has shown that boilers that are over the age of seven operate at only around 65% of their full efficiency. This means you could be losing as much as 35p of every pound you spend on your energy bills due to heat being wasted by an inefficient boiler. By contrast, your new boiler that you could receive through the free boiler grants scheme would usually run at no less than 90% efficiency, meaning you would only waste 10p or less of every pound spent.
