Free Boiler Replacement Service

Although it might sound too good to be true, but it can be really done. If you have a boiler that is more than 8 years old and it is faulty, and if you have a low income or have any other government benefits; then you can apply for a grant that replaces your old boiler for free.

This is so simple; the UK government -alongside the EU- has made an agreement to reduce the pollution that comes out from the use of some fuel sources. Some houses still use coal or wood for their heating purposes, so in order to reduce the bad environmental effects; a free boiler grant was agreed to be provided for people with some conditions that we will discuss later. The thing is, if you are eligible to this grant; you can replace your old boiler for free, without having to pay back any money.

 

Grant Conditions

To be eligible for this grant, one or more of these conditions must apply to you:

  • If you have a family with low income.
  • If you support a child less than 16 years old.
  • If you’re an elderly over 60 years old.
  • If you have a JSA or ESA based income.

All you have to do is to go online and fill in a form, this form will guide you to know if you are eligible for the free boiler grant or not. If you are not eligible, you will be told about the reasons your application was refused. But if your application is approved, you will be asked to fill in another form with your details. After doing this, your application will be revised and assessed; if it all goes well, then you go to the next level.

The next level is to be contacted by an authorized installer to perform a survey; you can arrange an appointment for it within 48 hours. After that, the installer will book another appointment to install your new free boiler and any other required heating controls if necessary.

 

Other Conditions

There are some other conditions that you will be asked about before replacing your boiler for free. One of these questions is how old is your boiler? If your answer is less than 8 years, then you will not be eligible for the grant, although you might be eligible for free repair process. If your answer is more than 8 years, then you will be asked about any faults your boiler may suffer from. Another question that you will have to answer; what type of boilers do you have? Whether it is wall mounted, floor mounted or back boiler. One other boiler-related question is about the main source of heating in your household. You will only be eligible for the free replacement if your heating source is mains gas.
