Which benefits qualify for a boiler grant?

In order to qualify for the UK government's boiler scheme, only those in receipt of certain benefits will fit the criteria to claim for a free boiler grant.

The applicant’s boiler must be at least 5 years old with a fault affecting it’s operation and efficiency. The installer will determine the boiler’s sufficiency and decide if it’s worth a replacement.

The state of your property will also be taken into consideration. The older and the less energy efficient your property is, the larger amount of funding will be granted to you. However, those with a more efficient property may need to make a contribution towards the boiler replacement.

The applicant’s current boiler must be on either Gas, Oil or LPG Fuel to qualify for a grant. Electric Storage Heaters or Fossil Fuels (Coal and Wood) at the moment do not qualify for a grant.

Please see the list below with combination of benefits. If you receive the correct benefits you will automatically qualify:
