Free boilerGovernment grants for free boilers in the UK
Free gas combi boilers are currently available in the UK via a new Government heating grant scheme.The free boiler scheme (Energy Companies Obligation, or ECO) provides Government funding for home energy efficiency improvements including free boilers, free loft insulation and free cavity wall insulation.

Free boiler grants are available for two reasons –

  • Energy efficient boilers use less fuel and reduce the levels of harmful Carbon emissions being released into the environment.
  • Applying for a free boiler grant as well as a home insulation grant can mean energy savings of up to £600. That’s £600 deducted from your domestic gas bill every year.

Why are there Government grants for free boilers?

Government grants for free boilers have been put in place for two reasons:

  • Installing energy efficient boilers helps the environment by lowering levels of harmful CO2 emissions
  • All boilers installed via the free boiler scheme are A grade gas condensing boilers. These boiler are more energy efficient. Therefore it costs less to heat your home. A rise in domestic fuel costs has seen many homes struggle to pay high gas / energy bills. The Government have now demanded that the energy companies help reduce the cost of heating homes across the UK by helping to pay for new boilers and home insulation products.
