As part of its policy on climate change, the UK Government has agreed to legally binding international commitments to reduce potentially harmful emissions caused by the production of energy from fossil fuels. Offering Free Boiler Grants will help towards this objective.
Reducing household energy bills
At the same time, the Government has set targets to reduce fuel poverty by helping low income households to reduce their fuel consumption by installing energy efficient central heating boilers.
Under the Affordable Warmth Obligation, if you satisfy certain criteria relating to state benefits and the condition of your existing central heating system, you may qualify for Free Boiler Grants.
Will it cost me anything?
Due to current funding restrictions for the Affordable Warmth Scheme some householders may be asked to contribute to the cost of installation.
Consequently, not every applicant will get a free boiler. The installer not be able to advise you of this until after your free survey has been carried out.
The value of Free Boiler Grants are based on the type of property you live in, how many bedrooms it has and several other factors.
