Boiler Grants – background
Boiler grants are available via the Government-backed Energy Companies Obligation (ECO). The ECO free boiler grant scheme is aimed to address fuel poverty in vulnerable sections of society across the UK.
In addition the boiler grant scheme is designed to reduce levels of carbon emissions being released into the environment by providing energy-efficient gas condensing boilers, which use less energy to heat your home and hot water.
Boiler Grants – energy efficiency
Installing an energy-efficient boiler is one of the most effective ways ways to cut down energy consumption in the home. Up to 60% of your gas bill is spent on powering your boiler and central heating system. Older boilers are often less energy-efficient and cost more to heat.
All new boilers installed via the ECO boiler grant scheme are gas condensing boilers which have been A Graded by SEDBUK, the UK’s boiler energy rating advisors.
Boiler grants – benefits and savings
Boilers account for 55 – 60 % of your annual heating or energy bills, so installing an energy efficient boiler can mean great energy savings on top of reductions in household bills.
- Boiler grants help reduce the cost of energy bills meaning significant savings
- Boiler grants reduce harmful Carbon Dioxide emissions helping reach the Government’s environmental targets

Your existing boiler must also be either over ten years old or must have a low energy efficiency rating.
The boiler survey will only take a short time. The assessor will also ask you to provide verification of your address. This will be via your mortgage statement or your tenancy lease. He will then fill in your details in the boiler grant application form.
