Considering applying for a free boiler?
By now most people should have heard of the free gas boiler scheme right? If you haven’t or need to know a bit more about it here is the deal.
If you own your own home or rent privately, and your boiler is old, broken or inefficient, you may qualify for a new high efficiency gas boiler which is supplied and installed free of charge. To qualify for a free boiler you must also meet certain income / benefit related requirements. More info on grant eligibility can be found here, Free Boilers - Grant FAQ’s.
Applying for a free boiler
If you think you may be eligible for a free boiler grant here’s how to apply. It is a simple process with no complicated terms & conditions.
Step 1 - Free boiler online application form
The first step is to follow our easy online application form. You will be asked a few simple questions with regards to your existing boiler and heating type, your current situation including your home ownership status and which type of benefits or tax credits you currently claim, if any.
You will not be asked to provide any personal details unless you qualify for a free boiler or home insulation grant.
Step 2 - Free boiler survey & check
A member of our team will contact you (normally straight away) to confirm the details of your free boiler application and pass your details on to a local approved boiler installer.
The boiler company will send an energy assessor to survey your boiler and confirm its suitability for replacement. He / she will do a quick check to confirm your boiler type and suitability for the grant scheme.
The assessor will help you fill in a grant application form and inform you regarding any documentation you should provide.
Step 3 - Free boiler install
You will then be given a date for your new boiler to be installed free of charge. There are no complicated terms & conditions.
Your replacement boiler will be an A rated condensing gas boiler. This type of boiler uses less energy to heat your home & central heating.
This means your heating bills will be lower and you will also help the environment by lowering carbon emissions.
