We have helped over 25,000 householders to apply for an ECO Grant since the scheme started early in 2013.
There are just 5 easy steps to a brand new A-Rated Oil Boiler to replace your broken oil fired boiler
Grants for oil boilers help to replace broken boilers with energy efficient boilers so that low income householders can reduce their energy bills.
The value of your oil boiler grant depends on the type of home you live in, how many bedrooms it has and how well insulated it is. Sometimes, oil boiler grants don’t cover the full cost of replacing a broken oil boiler and a contribution may be required towards the cost.
The ECO Scheme is a Government initiative which is designed to help low income households to replace broken heating systems with new energy efficient heating systems.
Major changes to the ECO Scheme were introduced in October 2018 and now, only home owners will qualify for grants to replace broken heating systems. The Government has introduced legislation to make landlords of privately rented homes responsible for providing a working heating system in homes they rent out.
Consequently, grants for oil boilers are not available for tenants of privately rented homes. Neither are they available to tenants in council or housing association owned homes or to those living in shared ownership homes.
The other major change was to limit grants for oil boilers to householders who receive one of the qualifying State Benefits, Tax Credits or other Allowances. However, the number of qualifying benefits has been increased to include Child Benefit, DLA, PIP and other DWP administered or MOD administered allowances.
