How To Apply For A Free Boiler Grant

How Does The British Gas Boiler Grant  Work?

Under the free boiler scheme low-income households in receipt of a qualify benefit are entitled to a Free upgrade  to an A Rated energy-efficient boiler.

As a boiler is responsible for the majority of a home’s heating bill, it makes sense to have a boiler as efficient as possible fitted.

Most people cannot afford to pay up to £2300 for a new boiler to be fitted ( average cost ) so a big ticket item like this  would not be changed unless it was completely broken.
Many homes have boilers over 15 years old limping on and wasting lots of gas which is why the government have allocated funding for assisting with the cost.
