Is your old boiler costing you too much in order to keep your home warm? Under the government boiler scheme you could be eligible to change your old boiler for free or at subsidised cost. Read the article below to learn more about the Free boiler scheme.
What is the Free boiler scheme?
Under this scheme – ECO (Energy Companies Obligation) – households with low income are potentially eligible to qualify to upgrade their old boilers to an energy-efficient boiler for free, or at the very least, heavily subsided. The eligibility for free boiler grants is available to homeowners but no longer applies to private tenants..

The primary goal of the scheme is to tackle fuel poverty and help vulnerable families lower their gas bills. Old boilers can prove to be inefficient and a drain on household expenses. Installing an energy-efficient gas boiler could help reduce gas bills for a household by up to £300 a year.
Will I be able to replace or repair my old boiler?
The Free Boiler Scheme is open to homeowners who are in receipt of at least one of a number of the applicable government benefits. By applying to the scheme, eligible applicants could receive a completely new A-rated boiler.
The free boiler scheme does not provide funding for boilers less than 7 year old as it is usually considered more economical for boilers of that age to be repaired rather than replaced, and the scheme is not able to fund repairs only boiler replacements.
What are the criteria for being eligible to replace your old boiler?
The Government-backed boiler scheme is designed for low-income families who might struggle with the cost of heating their homes. It aims to reduce their annual heating bills as well as their overall carbon footprint.
The criteria for acceptance of free boiler grants are:
- Your old boiler must be at least seven years old
- Your income must be £20,000 or less
- You must own your home
- You must claim at least one government benefit
