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.
The problem with many old boilers is that as well as heating your home inefficiently, they are environmentally unfriendly. So, as well as helping you, ECO helps the government meet their targets to reduce carbon emissions.
If you're eligible, the ECO government boiler scheme may provide funding towards a brand new, energy-efficient gas, oil or LPG boiler. You won't get a cash payout, but you may get a free boiler, or a significant contribution towards a new boiler that will help you heat your home a lot more efficiently, and cut your energy bills.
ECO scheme news update - 21st December 2016
Funding for gas boiler replacement is now very limited and may not be available for new enquiries. We expect another announcement from the government in January and will update this page once the details are known.
Oil and LPG grant funding is unaffected.
