What is a Boiler Grant?

An ECO Boiler Grant is awarded to householders who receive certain means-tested State Benefits to help them replace old, inefficient and faulty central heating boilers. The money comes from an annual levy placed on every UK householder’s electricity bill.

If your boiler grant is sufficient to cover the full cost of your boiler installation you will receive a FREE BOILER, if not you (or your landlord) may be asked to contribute to the cost.  Either way, you will NEVER have to pay back your boiler grant.

What Happens Next?

Once you have completed the Boiler Grant Application Form we will call you back to discuss your application. We should be able to immediately tell you whether you qualify for a boiler grant or not.

If you qualify, you will be referred to a local ECO Scheme approved boiler installation company.  They will arrange a free survey of your heating system and officially apply for a boiler grant on your behalf.

Once your application for ECO funding to replace your boiler has been approved, a date will be arranged for the installation.

How Can We Help?

The Affordable Warmth Scheme website was launched at the same time as the Government’s ECO Affordable Warmth Scheme itself, back in January 2013.

We work closely with a national network of ECO Approved boiler installation companies who have been awarded Affordable Warmth Scheme Boiler Grant funding.

Once we have confirmed that you satisfy the Affordable Warmth Scheme Boiler Grant qualifying criteria we will refer your enquiry to an ECO Approved installer to process your application.

What is the FREE BOILER GRANT Scheme?

The Government is committed to reducing greenhouse gases in an attempt to slow down the effects of climate change and it is also committed to tackling fuel poverty.  In an effort to deal with both of these problems the Government is offering a free boiler grant to qualifying households so that they can have an energy efficient gas central heating boiler to replace an old faulty boiler.

Boiler Grant Qualifying Criteria

To qualify for a boiler grant with the Affordable Warmth Scheme and get a brand new gas central heating boiler installed, you must satisfy all of the following criteria: 

1. You live in a private property (either owned or privately rented, not social housing)

2. You receive certain state benefits, such as Guaranteed Pension Credit, Working Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, Income-related Employment and Support Allowance, Income-based Job Seeker’s Allowance or Income Support. 

3. Your existing central heating boiler is rated at ‘C’ or below in terms of efficiency (that is, less than 86% efficient) and is faulty OR your existing boiler is A or B rated, is faulty and would cost more to repair than to replace.

The Government’s Affordable Warmth Scheme will offer a boiler grant to all householders who satisfy the above criteria. Boiler Grants are available for gas boilers, oil boilers and LPG boilers throughout England, Scotland and Wales.

If, instead of a central heating boiler, you have electric night storage heaters installed and they are faulty, you can apply for a Storage Heater Grant HERE.

Landlords : Do your tenants qualify for a boiler grant?

Affordable Warmth Scheme

The Affordable Warmth Scheme is part of the Government’s ECO (Energy Company Obligation) initiative which started in January 2013.  The original ECO scheme ended on 31st March 2017 but a new ECO scheme started on 1st April 2017 and will initially run for 18 months.

During this period, a consultation will take place to establish the details of a revised ECO scheme which is intended to run for a further four years.

The purpose of the Affordable Warmth Scheme is to reduce fuel poverty for low income households by offering a Boiler Grant or a Storage Heater Grant to replace inefficient and faulty heating appliances.
