Heat The Home Heating & Insulation Grants | Heat The Home

Heating & Insulation Grants*

The Governments ECO Scheme gives qualifying Homeowners a chance to have their old in-efficient boilers replaced completely free of charge, or heavily subsidised. If you qualify, we can arrange for a local, approved company to contact you to complete the installation. This service is free to use.

Do I Qualify?

Grants and heavily subsidised replacement boilers are available via ECO, a Government Scheme which has been set up to help low-income households access home efficiency improvements to reduce the cost of heating their homes, and to reduce their carbon footprints. If you meet the benefits related criteria, and your current Gas, Oil or LPG Boiler is at least 7 years old, you could qualify. It's as simple as that.


Grants are non-repayable, this means you do not have to pay any money back at any time. There are no complicated terms and conditions. If you qualify for a boiler grant, you can have one installed along with new heating controls (where necessary). The amount of funding you get is determined by the efficiency of your home, so an energy assessment will be carried out free of charge. In some instances a contribution may be required.


Grant funding is currently available for Cavity Wall Insulation, Internal Wall Insulation, Roof Insulation Grants, LPG Boilers, and Electric Storage Heaters. Apply online now!


If you want to learn more about the ECO scheme, please visit the GOV.UK website. Boiler Grants are funded by the 'Affordable Warmth' part of the energy company obligation.


If you receive the correct combination of income-related benefits, including tax credits, income support, ESA or JSA, then you could have your old boiler replaced with a brand new energy efficient A-rated boiler for free*.


As well as receiving the correct combination of benefits, your current Gas, or LPG Boiler must be at least over 7 years old. If it is less than 7 years old, the scheme makes an assumption that it is more cost effective to repair your old boiler, than it is to replace.


Some of the benefits mean that you will qualify for a boiler grant automatically, with no other requirements. With some others you may need to have an extra qualifying component such as being responsible for a child under 16, be of a certain age etc. You can view the full criteria here.


* Subject to qualifying criteria funding is dependent on the property.

By replacing your old, in-efficient boiler with a brand new, a-rated boiler you could reduce your energy bills by up to £300 per/year. Think of it like this - If your current boiler is 65% efficient, this means that for every £1 you spend on your heating, 35p is quite literally being wasted. By comparison, modern boilers are 90% + efficient. This means that a new boiler will have wastage of less than 10p for every £1 which you spend. If you receive the correct combination of benefits, a grant could help have your old Gas, LPG Boiler replaced via the ECO boiler grant scheme.
