Check eligibility criteria


  • What is it?

    Boiler and insulation grants are part of the Energy Company Obligation (ECO); a government scheme funded by utility companies.

    These grants help low income households in across Scotland, England and Wales to become more energy efficient and lower heating bills. Eligible households can apply for a grant to install a new A-rated boiler using a Registered Boiler Grant Installer.

  • Can I get it?

    For boiler grants as long as you receive a qualifying benefit AND you own your own home AND your boiler is over 8 years old you might be eligible for a boiler grant to replace your old boiler for a brand new one
