How to qualify for Government Boiler Scheme?
From 1 April 2022 a new ECO4 Government scheme was implemented across the UK. In order to qualify for the UK government boiler scheme 2023, only those in receipt of certain benefits will fit the criteria to claim government heating grants.
Note: If you received ECO boiler grant in the past you will be unable to claim it again.
The applicant’s boiler must be a Non-Condensing Gas boiler. Most boilers installed before 1 April 2005 are non-condensing. Our team will help you to establish if your boiler is non-condensing or not. You will be asked to provide a make and model of a boiler, or some images of it.
The applicant must be a Homeowner residing in the property.
Private Tenants and Landlords with tenants on benefits, as well as Homeowners with homes heated by Oil, LPG, Electricity or Fossil fuel (Coal or Wood), will not qualify for a boiler replacement. Instead, they may qualify for an Air Source Heat Pump plus Solar Panels Grant. Our team will review your application and assist with the best Government Grant available for you.
The state of your property will also be taken into consideration. Under ECO4 funding the Whole House Approach has been introduced. This means that the the governing bodies want to complete as many measures as possible in a property to increase their energy efficiency. This includes various types of home insulation grants where Cavity Wall Insulation and Loft Insulation MUST be done to the latest ECO4 standards in order to qualify for a FREE boiler upgrade or ASHP plus Solar Panels grant.
