Boiler Grant Qualification

How to get free central heating

The government is providing complete central heating assistance to households across the United Kingdom. If you get a qualifying pension and your boiler is 10 years or older, you may be eligible for grant financing towards a completely new A-rated boiler as part of the UK government’s Energy Company Obligation (ECO).

Free Central Heating System and Radiators Installation Grants

ECO plan now covers first-time central heating systems. The central heating grant allows you to purchase and install a variety of leading boiler and radiator manufacturers in your home.

Free boiler grants are provided by UK energy suppliers and do not require repayment. FTCH for grants is presently being focused on more functional, cost-effective, and healthier homes.

Some homes lack central heating systems that include a boiler and heaters. If you are a resident or a tenant who does not have a central heating system, you could now be eligible for 100% sponsorship for an FTCH installation.

Energy suppliers pay for the grant. Although you might just have to cover part of the installation costs, depending on the model and your personal factors, you should be eligible for significantly subsidised government financing to upgrade your flat’s heating system.
