IMPORTANT NOTICE, PLEASE READ THIS FIRST
Due to current funding restrictions for the ECO Affordable Warmth Scheme, we do not have installers with ECO funding for free boilers in all parts of the UK. The situation is changing weekly so we would ask that you complete the form on this page and if we can help you we will contact your tenant by telephone.
If we do not contact you it is likely that we do not have an installer in your area with current ECO funding for free boilers, however we will telephone you as soon as we do.
We hope that the situation will improve and we will update this website once we have more information.

B, BB, BD, BL, CF, CH, CV, CW, DE, DH, DL, DN, DY, EH, FK, FY, G, GL, HD, HG, HR, HX, L, LA, LE, LL, LN, LS, M, NE, NG, NN, NP, OL, PE (1 – 8 only), PR, S, SA, SK, SR, ST, SY, TF, TS, WA, WF, WN, WR, WS and WV.
Privately rented homes may be eligible for a free boiler under the Affordable Warmth Landlord’s free boiler scheme
We have dealt with over 9,000 applications for a FREE BOILER since the ECO Affordable Warmth scheme started.
Apply for the Landlord’s free boiler scheme today.
To be eligible for the ECO Affordable Warmth Scheme (the Landlord’s free boiler scheme) your tenant must receive certain state benefits and have an inefficient and faulty central heating boiler. What’s more, there is no limit to the number of properties which a landlord can have a new central heating boiler installed in under the ECO Affordable Warmth Scheme, as long as the necessary criteria are met in each case.
Under the ECO Affordable Warmth Scheme funds are provided by ENERGY COMPANIES to cover the full cost of certain energy efficient home improvements, such as a free boiler, free loft insulation, free cavity wall insulation or free solid wall insulation in privately owned properties, including privately rented properties. If, as landlord, you decide to apply for assistance under the ECO Affordable Warmth Scheme (the Landlord’s free boiler scheme) your tenant must also consent to any installation or repair. Similarly, if your tenant applies for assistance under the ECO Affordable Warmth Scheme then your consent is required.
The Green Deal and the Energy Companies Obligation
The ECO Affordable Warmth Scheme is part of the Energy Companies Obligation (ECO) and runs alongside the Government’s Green Deal Initiative which came into force on 28th January 2013. The Electricity and Gas (Energy Companies Obligation) Order 2012 was approved by Parliament in December 2012 and places responsibility on the big six energy companies to provide funds to cover the cost of certain home improvements intended to make private homes more energy efficient. Up to £1.3 billion per year will be made available to cover the cost of these energy-saving home improvements and the ECO Affordable Warmth Scheme (the Landlord’s free boiler scheme) is scheduled to run until March 2015.
Central heating boiler installers accredited under the Affordable Warmth Scheme
We have teamed up with a number of accredited central heating boiler installation companies throughout the United Kingdom who are just waiting for your completed application. Under the Energy Company Obligation which runs alongside the Green Deal, these accredited installers have funds available which may cover the cost of a new energy efficient central heating boiler in your privately rented home, free of charge!
To apply for funding under the ECO Affordable Warmth Scheme (the Landlord’s free boiler scheme) for a new ‘A’ Rated energy efficient central heating boiler in a property you own and rent out, we will require the following information:
The information collected above is only used to determine eligibility to qualify for assistance under the ECO Affordable Warmth Scheme (the Landlord’s free boiler scheme) and your tenant will be asked to provide evidence of any State Benefits they receive, at the time of the Technical Survey.
The free replacement of central heating boilers is subject to a survey by a Technical Surveyor but these are carried out free of charge.
