Under the Governments New ECO 4 Scheme for 2023 there are new grants to upgrade gas & oil boilers FREE OF CHARGE!

Free Boiler Scheme – Back Boilers

If You Have a Baxi Bermuda  Back Boiler Behind Your Fire  You Can Have It Replaced For a Brand New Combi Boiler.

This back boiler removal grant has recently been introduced into Eco funding in 2022 and has proved very popular.

It is not a back boiler replacement grant as the name implies though, your back boiler will be upgraded to a wall hung boiler.

Backboilers were previously not included in the free boiler scheme due to the cost ( Over £3000) but they now can be converted to a combi boiler free of charge.


How To Apply For The Free Boiler Scheme

Are Free Boilers A Scam?

Absolutely Not! Free Boiler schemes are certainly not a scam !

I have worked on the boiler schemes over the last 7 years and found them very much to be very genuine. I estimate over 1.5 million boilers have been changed under the scheme for free or part funded.

If you qualify I will do my best to get you a free boiler within 4 weeks of application.

When Will British Gas Pay The  £400

The Energy Bills Support Scheme (EBSS ) has been set up  by the Government to help everyone in the UK  with their energy bills.

This help will be in the way of a  £400 discount on their electricity bills.

This is paid through your energy account over six months from October 2022 to March 2023.

For people who are off the gas grid, a new support package will be launched in Feb 2023

This  is called Alternative Fuel Payment will be paid to eligible households through their electricity accounts.


Alternative Fuel Payment

Households that use alternative fuels for heating (such as biomass, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) or heating oil) will receive a single £200 payment.

This payment  will be in the form of  a voucher  sent by post which should be with you by end of February.

You can then redeem your voucher at the Post Office within 3 months of receipt or it will expire.

You can find your local Post Office at


 British Gas Boiler New – Cheaper Than You Think !

As you know British Gas will not be the cheapest for replacing your boiler.  Prices usually start from £3000 up to £5000 and more.

BUT they are doing a free boiler scheme for 2023


How Much Does A New Boiler Cost?

The average cost of replacing a gas boiler on a like for like basis is usually around £2300  and anywhere up to £3000 depending on who you choose as your installer assuming no extras are needed.
It is worth your while exploring the possibility of you being eligible for a subsidised boiler from the government.

This depends on the type of installation you need.  A typical combi boiler swap or regular/system boiler should cost around £2000 -£2,500.If you require a more complex conversion, your new boiler will cost you around £3,000 -£3500

How Much Money Do You Save By Replacing Your Boiler?

By replacing your old, in-efficient or broken boiler with a brand new, A-rated boiler you could reduce your energy bills by up to £300 per/year.

Example – If your current boiler is only 65% efficient, (back boilers are notoriously inefficient) this means that for every £1 you spend on your heating, 35p is quite literally being wasted.

Modern condensing boilers are 90% + efficient so you will only waste   10p for every £1 spent on heating.

British Gas Free Cavity & Loft Insulation

It’s likely that you qualify for government grant for cavity wall insulation if you own or rent a property that is ideally electrically heated and you receive the right combination of benefits.

You can save up to 30% per year on your energy bills with our  modern cavity wall insulation in your home.

Demand and availability of government grants are very limited and they will get  harder to get as we approach winter.
