Do I qualify for a free boiler grant?


In order to qualify for a free boiler grant you need to meet certain eligibility criteria. You can find out if you’re likely to qualify or not by clicking here. You’ll then need to answer a few simple questions.


Here is some information about the criteria you’ll need to meet, the questions we’ll ask you and why


About Your Home

Firstly we’ll ask you about your current living situation. As long as you own your own home or you are a tenant living in privately rented accommodation (and you have your landlord’s permission) you might be eligible for a boiler grant to replace your old boiler.


Unfortunately, people living in social housing are unable to apply but it’s possible your local authority may have other support schemes available.


Your Benefits

For this reason, you must be in receipt of one of the following benefits to apply:

Your Boiler

The scheme applies to non condensing gas boilers or condensing boilers which are under 86% efficient. Currently, grants are not available for electric boilers and funding for Gas is limited but there are grants available for LPG and Electric Storage Heaters.


How does the process work?

After you’ve applied for a boiler grant by completing our online form we will need to give you a quick call to confirm that you meet all the necessary criteria. It will only take a few moments to assess your eligibility. We’ll need to check what benefits you receive, your annual household income, how many children are living in your home and confirm your status (whether you’re a private tenant or own your own home).


We will also ask you for the make and model of your current boiler, how old it is and whereabouts it’s located. If you can have all of this information to hand when we ring we’ll be able to get your application processed a lot quicker.
