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.
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. Even if you do not qualify for a grant, we can help 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 system.
Heating grants can also be claimed to replace inefficient or faulty Electric Storage Heaters. Click here for more information.

Who qualifies for a grant?
To qualify for a heating grant, you must be a home owner. Private tenants and landlords no longer qualify for a grant but we can help with the Green Deal and other types of finance.
Someone living in the property must be receiving one or more of the income or disability-related benefits listed below.
A contribution towards the cost will be required in some cases, 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.

If someone in the household receives one or more of the income or disability-related benefits listed, you should qualify for a boiler or central heating grant.
* Combined annual household income limits apply if Child Benefit is being claimed. See our Who Qualifies page for more details.
What systems qualify for a heating grant?
If you have a Central Heating system, your existing boiler is aged over 5 years old and it is faulty, you should qualify for a grant towards the cost of having it replaced.
Heating grants are also available to install full Central Heating systems if there is currently no system installed.
Electric storage heaters can also be replaced with more efficient models under the scheme.
- Inefficient/Faulty Boilers
- No Central Heating
- Inefficient Storage Heaters
Heating grants are available to cover some or all of the cost of replacing inefficient or faulty boilers, the installation of full central heating systems and the replacement of inefficient electric storage heaters. See our What Qualifies page for further information.

We have helped many thousands of customers since June 2007 to claim grants for Home Insulation and Central Heating. We understand the industry and work hard to put you in touch with the right people.
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.
