Free boilers are available for low-income households via the UK Government ECO free boiler scheme. Pensioners and people on benefits / Tax Credits who are eligible can claim 100% free boiler grants which are non-repayable. Replacing an old boiler helps lower heating bills and carbon dioxide emissions.
Grant eligibility depends on which type of property you live in and the energy efficiency of your current heating system. The ECO grant scheme is designed to reduce levels of carbon dioxide emissions so if your heating system is quite new or already energy efficient a new gas boiler won't make that much difference.
You may qualify for a full or partial Government boiler grant if you claim certain benefits or are on a low income. In addition your gas boiler must be old or unable to heat your property efficiently to make a boiler replacement grant worthwhile.
"When I first heard about the Government energy grant scheme I was a bit dubious. Like many people would I thought that a new boiler and insulation worth £3000 completely free of charge was too good to be true."
"Hovever I applied for a grant and found out that I qualified for a free Government heating & insulation grant because I received Pension Credits. I can vouch that the whole process was easy with no hassle. The energy assessor and the gas engineer who installed my new combi boiler were very helpful and answered any questions I asked."
"I feel that my central heating is now functioning correctly and I am not throwing money away. I am looking forward to seeing a reduction on my gas bill this winter. I can't thank Free-Boilers.co.uk enough." - Paula, London.
"I had a free boiler installed via the Government grant scheme and would advise anyone to take advantage of the free grant scheme. I noticed substantial savings on my gas bills immediately" -
