Boiler + Insulation Grants Eco Boiler and Insulation Grants WHAT ARE BOILER AND INSULATION GRANTS? Free, and heavily subsidised replacement boilers are available via ECO, a Government Scheme which has been set up to help low-income households access home efficiency improvements to reduce the cost of heating their homes, and to reduce their carbon footprints. If you meet the benefits or low income related criteria, and your current boiler is at least 6 years old, you could qualify. It’s as simple as that. Boiler and Insulation Grants are non-repayable, this means you do not have to pay any money back at any time. There are no complicated terms and conditions. If you qualify for a grant, you can have a new boiler and insulation installed along with new heating controls. The amount of funding you get is determined by the efficiency of your home, so an energy assessment will be carried out free of charge. In some instances a small contribution may be required. Grant funding is currently available for gas boilers, oil boilers, LPG boilers, electric storage heaters and insulation.
