The most prominent program is the energy company obligation eco scheme, which provides funding for energy efficiency improvements, including the installation of a central heating system.

How To Qualify-Check Your Eligibility for First-Time Central Heating Funding

Do you qualify for the first-time central heating funding? Don’t wait any longer—find out today if you’re eligible for the energy supplier-backed ECO 4 Scheme. We’ll guide you through the entire process, from application to turning on your central heating for the first time.

  • We’re Here to Help Every Step of the Way

If your home has never had central heating, and you’re a homeowner or a tenant in a private rental, you may qualify for funding. Additionally, someone in your household must receive one of the following qualifying benefits:

  • Income-based Job Seekers Allowance (JSA)
  • Income-related Employment & Support Allowance (ESA)
  • Income Support (IS)
  • Pension Credit Guarantee Credit
  • Working Tax Credit (WTC)
  • Child Tax Credits (CTC) / Child Benefit
  • Universal Credit (UC)
  • Housing Benefit
  • Pension Credit

Even if no one in your household receives these benefits, you might still qualify under the ECO 4 Flex scheme. If your household income is less than £31,000 per year, you could be eligible for funding.

  • Special Notes for Tenants

If you live in a privately rented home, your eligibility is based on your situation, not your landlord’s. However, you will need your landlord’s permission to proceed with the installation.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to make your home warm and comfortable. Apply today for first-time central heating funding at Free Boiler Scheme and get ready to enjoy a warm house. We’re here to support you through the entire process.

How To Apply- Step By Step Process For Central Heating Grant?

The first step in applying for a free central heating grant is to determine if you meet the eligibility criteria. Generally, eligibility is based on several factors:

Step 1: Check your eligibility

  • Income Level: low-income households are prioritized. You may need to provide proof of income or benefits.
  • Current heating system: Your current heating system should be old and inefficient or nonexistent. Homes without central heating are given priority.
  • Property ownership: Free Boiler Grants are typically available to homeowners and private tenants. If you are a tenant, you will need your landlord’s permission.

Step 2: Necessary documentation 

Once you have confirmed your eligibility, gather all necessary documentation. This usually includes:

  • Proof of income: recent pay slips, tax credit notices or universal credit statements.
  • Proof of residency: utility bills or a tendency agreement.
  • Proof of benefits: If you receive government benefits, provide relevant documentation, such as Pension Credit or income support statements.

Step 3: Submit Your Application

With all your documents in order and a registered installer from us, you can now submit your application. This process typically involves:

  • Application Form: Complete the form with accurate details about your household, income, and current heating system.
  • Document Submission: Attach all necessary documents to your application.
  • Installer Confirmation: Our chosen installer will often help you with the application process, ensuring all details are correctly filled out.

Step 4: Await Approval and Schedule a Survey

After submitting your application, you will need to wait for approval. This usually takes a few weeks. Once approved, a surveyor will visit your property to assess your current heating system and determine the most suitable upgrades.

Step 5: Installation of the Central Heating System

If your application is approved and the survey is complete, you can schedule the installation of your new central heating system. The registered installer will carry out the installation, and the grant will cover the cost. Ensure the installation date is convenient for you and that you prepare your home for the installation process.
