Boiler grants can be claimed by UK home owners and private tenants who are claiming income-based benefits. The grants cover some or all of the cost of a brand new A-rated boiler and they never have to be paid back.
As long as your current boiler is inefficient or faulty and you receive a qualifying benefit, you should be entitled to a boiler grant.

What type of boilers qualify?
If your current boiler is more than 5 years old, it is likely to be rated at less than 86% efficiency i.e. C rated or below and should qualify for replacement.
Even if it is A or B rated, providing it is faulty and beyond economical repair, you can still qualify for a boiler grant. Common faults include losing pressure, leaking water, pilot light going out, making noises, no heating or hot water or both.
Who qualifies for a boiler grant?
Someone living in the household must be claiming an income-related benefit as listed below. The property must also be privately owned or rented from a private landlord.
A contribution towards the cost of a new boiler may be required, depending on the amount of work needed and how efficient the property is. This can be paid for through savings on heating bills via the Green Deal.
- Pension Guarantee Credit
- Income Support
- Income Based JSA
- Income-Related ESA
- Child Tax Credit
- Working Tax Credit
- Universal Credit
One of seven income-related benefits qualify for a replacement boiler grant. The benefit can be claimed by anyone living in the property.
If tax credits are the qualifying benefit, there is a limit on the income being earned by the entire household. Please visit our Who Qualifies page for full details.
What if you don't qualify?
If you are not entitled to a boiler grant, you could still be eligible for Green Deal Finance to pay for a replacement boiler. The Green Deal is a loan which is attached to the property rather than an individual. There is nothing to pay in advance and the repayments are taken from the savings on heating bills so you are never out of pocket.
How can EnergyLink help?
Once you have completed the form, we will allocate you to an approved local boiler installer with access to grant funding and the Green Deal. They will telephone you to make an appointment to undertake a free, no-obligation survey. If you are happy to go ahead, they will install the new boiler and then claim the grant or arrange the Green Deal on your behalf.
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.
