Can I get a grant to replace my old boiler? - Yes, if you meet the criteria. The boiler grant is part of the Energy Company Obligation (ECO); a government scheme funded by the 'Big Six' utility companies. This grant helps low income households in England, Scotland and Wales to become more energy efficient and lower heating bills. Eligible households with an old boiler, that's 8 years old or more, can apply for a grant to install a new A-rated boiler. You may be required to make a contribution towards the cost of the boiler replacement. If you don't qualify for a boiler grant the Green Deal Finance Scheme can provide a loan, as an alternative, enabling you to carry out energy efficient home improvements at no upfront cost.
