Under the Governments ECO Scheme in 2021, qualifying home owners could have their old in-efficient boilers replaced completely free of charge or at least heavily subsidised.
Borthwick Heating has secured funding for the foreseeable future to replace mains gas boilers and upgrade insulation measures where possible in the Northern East area. To be able to access this funding you must own your own home and someone in the household must be receiving government credits such as Child Benefit, Tax Credits, Pension Credits, DLA, PIP ESA, etc
If you think your household might qualify please complete the form on this page and a member of our team will contact you to guide you through the simple process.
In order to qualify for a free boiler grant you need to meet certain eligibility criteria. You can find out if you qualify or not by filling out the form at the top of this page and a member of our team will be in touch to guide you through the application process.
Who can get a free boiler/what is the criteria?
The ECO scheme was set up with the intention of helping households on the lowest incomes to improve their energy efficiency and reduce their energy bills. In October 2018 the Government launched the latest version of the ECO scheme and it now includes even more benefits – meaning more people than ever may be able to qualify.
You must be in receipt of one of the following benefits to apply:
- Pension Credit Guarantee Credit Element
- Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
- Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA)
- Income Support
- Working Tax Credits
- Child Tax Credits
- Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)
- Attendance Allowance
- Carer’s Allowance
- Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
- Severe Disablement Allowance
- War Pensions Mobility Supplement
- Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit
- Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
- Constant Attendance Allowance
The style of property in which you live is also taken in to consideration to, the older and more in-efficient your property is, the more funding it will yield to go towards the grant. If you have a very efficient property, you may need to contribute a small amount to cover the cost of the install.
Finally, you must be on a mains gas, oil or LPG supply. Free Boiler grants are now available to those in off gas areas.
