The government’s ECO boiler grants
The UK government’s Energy Company Obligation Scheme (ECO) was introduced to help vulnerable homeowners across England, Scotland and Wales with the reduction of their energy bills.
The New Boiler Grant team have been focused on ECO since it started in 2013. This website offers the latest ECO3 grant funding that was launched on 1st October 2018. At New Boiler Grant we are able to show you how to get a free boiler within the mainland and islands of England, Scotland and Wales.
If you receive one of the newly expanded qualifying benefits and your boiler is over 5 years old, you may already be entitled to a brand-new A-rated boiler grant.
The free boiler grants are funded by UK energy companies and don't need to be repaid. See if you qualify now.Apply now
What is the ‘Free Boiler Scheme’ ?
The free boiler scheme is an initiative to reduce the UK's energy consumption by offering grant boilers to homes across England, Scotland and Wales. It provides grants to vulnerable households in order to help them improve the energy efficiency of their homes.
If you have a Gas, Oil, or LPG boiler that is over 5 years old and you meet the benefits criteria then you can apply for a free boiler grant.
In 2012, the parliament of the UK approved the Energy Company Obligation (ECO). With the total budget increasing to £1.3 billion this year, the scheme is funded by the largest UK utility companies.
Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is made up of 3 obligations, Affordable Warmth, Carbon Saving Community Obligation and The Carbon Saving Obligation. Funding for the free boiler scheme 2020 is part of the Affordable Warmth Obligation.
Affordable Warmth Obligation (HHCRO)
The Affordable Warmth Obligation is also known as the Home Heat Cost Reduction Obligation (HHCRO). As well as helping vulnerable people reduce their fuel consumption, it provides free boiler replacement and insulation grants to private homeowners in England, Scotland and Wales. HHCRO reduces fuel poverty amongst vulnerable and low-income households by ensuring that heat is generated as efficiently as possible and is prevented from escaping from the home.Apply now
Good news - from the 1st October 2018, ECO3 was launched and removed the caps on household income making it much easier to qualify for FREE Boiler Grants 2020. In fact, as long as you are in receipt of certain benefits then the application is very simple.
Your property must be of a size and structure which is able to create sufficient savings from a boiler replacement.
Also, the size of the grant depends on the type of the property you have and the number of bedrooms, and the fuel currently being used to heat your home. In many cases the grant will cover the cost of a new boiler in full.
Please note: If you have received a grant boiler in the past then the scheme cannot provide you with another one.PROCEED TO APPLICATION

How "Free Boiler Grant" works ?
Why replace your old boiler?
Replacing your old boiler is definitely a worthwhile choice. Not only can you replace it for free but you can also save on your fuel bills year after year, and help the environment.
According to the Energy Saving Trust, heating accounts for around 60% of the annual cost of our energy bills. So, having an efficient boiler really can save you a large amount each year! Condensing boilers are designed to capture heat which is released during the combustion process through flue systems. These boilers are more efficient as they require less energy to generate the same amount of heat as conventional boilers.
The new boiler installation can also help to reduce the carbon footprint of your home. Less energy consumption will mean that your bills are also less. With energy bills becoming higher than ever, it is important your home is being heated at the lowest possible cost by your boiler.
