The ECO boiler scheme provides funding for households on low incomes which may be suffering from fuel poverty to have a free boiler and free home insulation installed. The way the Government has decided to target homes with fuel poverty is by reference to them receiving certain state benefits. You must be a homeower or be in private rented accomodation to qualify. If you are in Social Housing then please speak to you council advisor who may be able to assist you through other schemes.

If you are currently in receipt of one of the following you will automatically qualify for a new boiler:

  • Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (with a houshold income of less than £15,860)
