New Boiler is Installed

Enjoy Instant Benefits

If you are a homeowner and receiving Pension Credit you can apply for a grant boiler.


Grants are available to replace gas boilers that are broken or classed as inefficient. The general rule is that any boiler over 8 years old would most likely qualify.

As long as you meet the following criteria you can apply for a boiler grant:

  • You have a gas boiler over 8 years old or one that is broken.
  • You own your own home or are a tenant living in privately rented accommodation
  • You’re in receipt of Pension Guarantee Credit*
  • Are 60 years old or more and receive Working Tax Credit
  • Live in England, Scotland or Wales.

If you want to learn more about the ECO scheme, please visit the GOV.UK website. Free boilers are funded by the ‘Affordable Warmth’ part of the energy company obligation.

Pensioners – Slash Your Bills With A Boiler Grant

With winter drawing in fast, it’s important to be prepared. If your current boiler is 8+ years old then it’s more than likely going to be unreliable, and expensive to run. All new boilers which are installed via the free boiler scheme are A rated, which in percentage terms is 90%+. By comparison, older boilers can be anywhere from 60% efficient. This means that for every £1 you spend on your heating, 40p is literally wasted. If you qualify for a free boiler via a government grant, your new boiler will waste less than 10p which is a huge saving.

Recent figures taken from the Energy Saving Trust have shown that by replacing your old in-efficient boiler, with a new A rated combi condensing boiler, you could save up-to as much as £350 over the course of a year.
