Free Oil Boiler Grants - How does it work?

The Affordable Warmth Scheme is a Government initiative and there are several checks to ensure that only those entitled to assistance will receive an oil boiler grant.

The stages through to a new A Rated oil boiler to replace your existing inefficient one are as follows:

  • Complete the form on this page and we’ll telephone you to discuss your free oil boiler grants application and to arrange a free survey of your heating system.
  • Your ECO Approved Surveyor will require proof of address and may take copies of your current State Benefit award letters.
  • The installation company will apply for an oil boiler grant on your behalf from an ECO Approved Funding Organisation.  The value of free oil boiler grants for householders is based on the type of property, how many bedrooms it has and several other factors.
  • Once free oil boiler grants are approved, the amount of the grant is compared to cost of installing a new oil boiler in your home. You will know then whether a contribution to the cost is required, or not.  If you do not want to proceed once you know the amount of any contribution you can withdraw your application and there will be no cost to you.
  • A technical survey is then arranged to properly plan your new oil boiler installation.
  • A convenient time will be arranged for your new oil boiler to be installed…….leaving you with a warmer home.
Free Oil Boiler Grants - What does the grant cover?
Free oil boiler grants are only granted to householders who satisfy Affordable Warmth Scheme Qualifying Criteria.

The scheme only replaces heating systems on a ‘like for like’ basis, so you must have an old, faulty oil boiler installed in your home, to qualify for the free oil boiler grants scheme.

The free oil boiler grants scheme covers the cost of a new A rated oil boiler and the installation, in the same location as your existing oil boiler.  Your old oil boiler will be taken away.

Although a small amount of new pipework and any electrical work will also be included, it does not include any new radiators or thermostatic valves.

Will I have to contribute to the cost of a new oil boiler?

The value of Free Oil Boiler Grants depends on the type of home you live in, how many bedrooms it has and many other factors. Your ECO Approved surveyor will need to carry out a free survey to determine how much your free oil boiler grant is.

The ECO Approved Installation Company then needs to calculate the cost of installing a new oil boiler in your home and compare that to your oil boiler grant.

If you oil boiler grant is sufficient to cover the cost of installing your new oil boiler, there will be no charge. If not, you (or your landlord if appropriate) may need to maker a contribution.

If you (or your landlord) are not prepared to make the contribution required you can withdraw your free oil boiler grants application and there will be no cost.

Free Oil Boiler Grants never have to be repaid, even if you move house.

FREE OIL BOILER GRANTS and the Green Deal

If you qualify for Free Oil Boiler Grants but you have to make a contribution to the installation cost and you can’t afford to, the Green Deal may be able to help.

The Green Deal energy efficiency scheme was introduced by the Government in 2013, was withdrawn in July 2015 and has been relaunched in June 2017.

How does the Green Deal work?

Green Deal Loans are available to fund energy efficient home improvements, with loan repayments covered by savings made from reduced heating bills. Green Deal can work in two ways:

I qualify for Free Oil Boiler Grants but it doesn’t cover the full cost of installation.

If your oil boiler grant does not cover the full cost of your oil boiler installation you may be able to use a Green Deal loan to pay for your contribution. This way you have no deposit to make and the Green Deal loan repayments are added to your electricity bill.

However, your electricity bill will not go up because the Green Deal Golden Rule ensures that any repayments will be less than the savings made due to improved energy efficiency.

I do not qualify for Free Oil Boiler Grants

If you do not qualify for Free Oil Boiler Grants you can apply for a Green Deal loan to pay for a new oil boiler. You do not have to pay a deposit and your Green Deal loan repayments will be added to your electricity bill.

However, your electricity bill will not go up because the Green Deal Golden Rule ensures that any repayments will be less than the savings made due to improved energy efficiency.
