Grants are currently available for low income families with qualifying criteria to put towards replacing broken or inefficient boilers (please note that currently we can only accept applications for broken boilers).

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 homesĀ  – so get in touch today if:

  • Your gas boiler is not in working condition
  • You are in receipt of one of the following benefits:
    • Child Tax Credits
    • Child Benefit *
    • Pension Credit Guarantee Credit Element
    • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
    • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA)
    • Income Support
    • Working Tax Credits
    • Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)
    • Attendance Allowance
    • Carer’s Allowance
    • Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
    • Severe Disablement Allowance
    • War Pensions Mobility Supplement
    • Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit
    • Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
    • Constant Attendance Allowance
  • You are permanently resident in England, Scotland or Wales. (Northern Ireland operates a separate grant to replace your boiler.)

*If you claim Child Benefit we will need to ask some additional questions to check if you qualify.

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, if we are able to find an installer with funding in your area, 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 (or an OFTEC registered installer for oil boilers).

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.
