All the big energy companies like British Gas, EDF, E.ON, Npower and Scottish Power are required by the government to help you save money on your heating if you meet the scheme criteria. The easiest way they can do this is to provide better insulation and more efficient heating for your home.

If you’re eligible, the ECO government boiler scheme may provide funding towards a brand new, energy-efficient boiler. You won’t get a cash payout, but you may get a significant contribution towards a new boiler that will help you heat your home a lot more efficiently, and cut your energy bills.

If you don’t qualify, you can always get 3 FREE quotes to replace your boiler from Boiler Guide.

Can I get a boiler grant under the
Government’s ECO boiler scheme?

Yes, if you live in England, Scotland or Wales and meet the ECO scheme criteria set out by the government.

Boiler Grants Qualifying Criteria

  • You will need to be in receipt of a means tested benefit (for example, Child Tax Credit or Income Support). For some of these benefits, such as Child Benefit, you may also need to have a household income below a certain threshold (our handy online form will guide you through this part!)
  • Your current boiler is also considered – if your boiler is broken you can apply for a boiler grant to install a brand new A-rated boiler using a Gas Safe or OFTEC Boiler Grants installer.
  • Finally, we can only help with ECO scheme applications for homeowners (however private tenants and those living in social housing may be able to apply for the grant through other providers). If you have a different living situation, for example if you live in a council property, please contact your local council or the Energy Saving Advice Service for more information on help available to you.
