Free Boiler & Heating Grants
Heating grants are available towards the cost of a Replacement Boiler or full Central Heating system. The heating grants are part of a Government-backed scheme called the Energy Companies Obligation (ECO). In some cases they can cover the full cost of the work and they do not have to be paid back.
Oil and LPG boilers are normally free of charge although in some cases you may have to pay towards the cost. Gas boilers are no longer free and you will be required to pay a contribution towards the cost. This can be funded in a variety of ways including Green Deal Finance where some or all of the savings made on your heating bills pay the required amount over the lifetime of the boiler.
Providing you meet the criteria outlined below, EnergyLink can arrange for you to receive a free, no-obligation survey from an approved ECO installer working in your local area.
Heating grants can also be claimed to replace inefficient or faulty Electric Storage Heaters. Click here for more information.

The process was really smooth from start to finish with excellent customer service throughout. The new boiler has made a real difference.
EnergyLink were helpful and informative, my boiler was installed within the month and now my wife and I are warm and comfortable.
I had my new boiler installed last month and my house is so much warmer now. Thanks very much!
My gas bills were huge before my new boiler was installed and I’m looking forward to seeing the difference this winter. I’d recommend the service to anyone.
My new boiler works perfectly. I explained the issues I was having with my old boiler and EnergyLink helped me straight away. I am a mother with three young kids so having a warm home is very important.
It was so easy to apply and the staff were really pleasant. Thank you EnergyLink.
