Which benefits qualify for Government Boiler Scheme?
In order to qualify for the UK government boiler scheme 2021, 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 at least 7 years old with a fault affecting it’s operation and efficiency. The installer will determine the boiler’s sufficiency and decide if it’s worth applying for ECO boiler scheme.
The state of your property will also be taken into consideration. The older and the less energy efficient your property is, the larger amount of funding will be granted to you. However, those with a more efficient property may need to make a contribution towards the boiler replacement grant.
The applicant’s current boiler must be on either Gas, Oil or LPG Fuel to qualify. Electric Storage Heaters or Fossil Fuels (Coal and Wood) at the moment do not qualify for Government heating grants.
