How to get a free boiler for pensioners

Who is eligible for a free boiler?

If your older relative owns their own home or is a private tenant, they will be eligible for a free replacement boiler, if they are also either:

  • A pensioner receiving State Pension Credits
  • Over 60 receiving Working Tax Credits
  • You do not currently have a condensing boiler, or is over ten years old or is no longer working and are receiving one of the above benefits

What are government free boiler grants?

  • These are available in the UK as part of the Energy Companies Obligation (ECO) replacement boiler grant scheme and is funded by the big six energy companies: British Gas, Scottish Power, Npower, EDF, SSE and E.ON
  • New boilers will be a Grade A condensing boiler.

What are the advantages of the boiler grant scheme?

  • Saves thousands of rounds on a new bolier
  • A new ECO friendly boiler will help you to reduce your heating bills by hundreds of pounds a year
  • Helps older people heat their homes more cost effectively
  • Installation is free

You can apply for a boiler grant HERE.

Once you have submitted your details, you will be contacted a few days. A qualified Home Energy Assessor will visit and will carry out a survey and arrange an installation date.
