How does the grant scheme work?

The Government's ECO Grant Scheme is designed to reduce the cost of heating a home for people on low income. It allows private tenants and home owners who qualify for income-related benefits to have a free replacement boiler installed, fully paid for by the UK's six largest energy companies. If you meet the qualification criteria, an approved installer will make an appointment to visit your home to carry out an inspection of your existing boiler. In nearly all cases, boilers over 10 years old will qualify, the installer will confirm that you are entitled to the grant. They will then arrange for a brand new A-rated boiler to be installed completely free of charge.
