Boiler grants for families on low incomeGrants are currently available for low income families with qualifying criteria to put towards replacing old, broken or inefficient gas boilers. If you own your own home or privately rent a property (with your landlord’s permission) you can apply for a boiler grant.

Applying is completely free of charge and can be started by entering your postcode on this page. Once you have submitted your application, one of our friendly customer service team will contact you promptly to talk you through the process and verify your qualification to proceed.

How is it funded?

The ECO (Energy Company Obligation) scheme is a government led initiative to help low income households reduce their energy bills. There is a legal obligation on larger energy companies including the “Big Six” to meet targets of improving fuel efficiency.

Single parents or guardians and low income families are finding it increasingly hard to heat their homes  – so get in touch today if:

  • Your gas boiler is over 8 years old or not in working condition
  • You are in receipt of one of the following benefits:

    • Child Tax Credit (with an income of £16,010 or less)
    • Working Tax Credit (with an income of £16,010 or less)
    • Income Support
    • Income-based Job Seeker’s Allowance
    • Income-Related Employment Support Allowance
    • Universal credit with a monthly earned income of £1,250 or less in any assessment period in the last 12 months.
  • You are permanently resident in England, Scotland or Wales.  (Northern Ireland operates a separate grant to replace your boiler.)

Further criteria apply and you can see the full list of qualifying criteria here.

You will need to have details of the make and model of your boiler and its approximate age. You will also need the paper work for your tax credit or income related benefits to confirm your eligibility.

Once this is confirmed, the ECO scheme approved company assigned will send a qualified surveyor to view the property and finish the final qualifying checks before the grant is approved. The installation will then be carried out by a Gas Safe registered and approved installer.

Your new highly efficient condensing gas boiler will start saving you money on your energy bills helping you to heat your home more affordably.

Please note that even if you qualify, you may be required to make a contribution towards the new boiler but savings on your ongoing energy bills should offset that.
