What Is The Boiler Scrappage Scheme ?

The UK boiler scrappage scheme was a scrappage scheme to subsidise up to 125,000 English households to install newer, fuel-efficient heating systems and stay warm without wasting energy.


Each qualifying household would receive a £400 grant from the government towards a brand new boiler.



Households that took part in the scheme were expected to save between £200 and £235 a year on fuel bills, cut their carbon emissions and sustain work for the heating industry.

The scheme was announced by the Chancellor Alistair Darling in a Pre-Budget Report at the end of 2009 and launched on 5 January 2010.

A similar vehicle scrappage scheme had already been announced in the 2009 budget. The total cost was to be £50 million, with a further £150 million for the Warm Front Scheme.

To qualify, one had to live in England and have a working G-rated boiler.

Successful applicants received a voucher for £400 off the price of either a modern A-rated boiler or a renewable heating system (such as a biomass boilerheat pump or micro CHP).

After a completed installation, the voucher could be redeemed from the Energy Saving Trust for its £400 monetary value.

Some suppliers were criticised for high prices of the replacement boilers offered.

Even though some of the major power companies were offering a further £400 discount to match the government voucher, their overall price was still considerably greater than that from an independent fitter.

Unlike some other UK schemes, the scheme was taken up widely and all 125,000 vouchers were claimed within a few months, with the scheme then closing.

The current scheme is now targeted at benefits claimants, that have boilers over 18 yrs old or back boilers are fitted.

Why Is the government giving grants for boiler replacement ?

Most people on benefits will have an old boiler fitted and will not be able to afford the £2000 or so to have it replaced.

The government have stepped in with  Grant Money from the Eco 4 Scheme to help these such people and the Grant For New Boilers Scheme was born.

For people not on benefits , you can choose the Boiler Upgrade Scheme which is a £7500 grant to upgrade to a heat pump.

Over a million boilers have now been exchanged since 2013 when the scheme first started.

The Boiler Scrappage Scheme 2024 - What Are Available In The UK

Does The Boiler Have To Be Faulty To Qualify For The Eco 4 Scheme For Boilers ?

The boiler has to be  below 85% efficiency which most non condensing boilers are. It does not necesarily have to be faulty to qualify for the free grant.

Our engineers have to do a thorough test including Energy efficiency tests, combustion and safeness tests to qualify it.

This does not apply to the Boiler Upgrade Scheme where all home owners can apply.


Can I get a grant for a new boiler if I'm not on benefits?

There is a scheme called LA Flex which allows people not claiming a benefit to qualify as long as they meet other criteria such as low income and health conditions.

A lot of councils have not signed up to this scheme and so many  non benefit applications end up in the bin.

Feel free to apply but be aware that over 90% of applications are rejected sorry.

any grants for boiler Replacement in Scotland

Scotland is also covered under the Eco 4 Scheme for free boiler replacement subject to meeting other criteria. 

Please see our Grants For Boilers Scotland page for full details of the scheme and how to apply

The Boiler Scrappage Scheme-Types of Boilers Covered

1. Condensing Boilers

Condensing boilers are highly efficient and use the heat produced during the combustion process to preheat the water before it enters the central heating system. This type of boiler is suitable for both heating and hot water requirements. With their high energy efficiency rating, condensing boilers are eligible for grants in The UK

2. Combi Boilers

Combi boilers, also known as combination boilers, are versatile and space-saving units that provide both heating and hot water on demand.

They do not require a separate water storage tank, making them a popular choice for homes with limited space. Combi boilers are covered by grants in the UK and offer excellent energy efficiency.

3. System Boilers

System boilers work alongside hot water cylinders, which store and distribute hot water throughout your home.

This type of boiler is suitable for larger properties with multiple bathrooms, as it can provide hot water to several outlets simultaneously. System boilers are also eligible for grants  offering homeowners the opportunity to upgrade to a more efficient heating system.

4. Biomass Boilers

Biomass boilers utilize organic materials, such as wood pellets or logs, to generate heat and hot water. They are considered a renewable and environmentally friendly heating solution. Biomass boilers are eligible for grants in UK, promoting sustainable and efficient heating options.

5. Oil Boilers

Oil boilers are commonly found in rural areas where access to natural gas is limited. These boilers use oil as the fuel source and are known for their reliability and efficiency. Homeowners with oil boilers can benefit from grants in the UK to upgrade to newer, more efficient models.

6. Electric Boilers

Electric boilers are a viable option for homes without access to gas or oil supplies. They are compact and can be easily installed, making them suitable for smaller properties. While electric boilers may have higher running costs compared to other types, and can help offset the initial investment.

7. Heat Pumps

Heat pumps extract heat from the air or ground and transfer it to your home, providing both heating and hot water. They are highly efficient and environmentally friendly, as they utilize renewable energy sources. Heat pumps are covered by Eco 4 grants  encouraging homeowners to adopt greener heating solutions.

Can I Apply For A Free Boiler Retrospectively

We do get some people who were not aware of the Grant For New Boiler Scheme and have purchased a new boiler privately and then found out they were entitled to the grant. They would like to see if they can claim back the price of the boiler they have paid out from the scheme retrospectively.

Unfortunately, this is not possible and you will not get anywhere by going down this route.

10 Things To Know About The Boiler Scrappage Scheme

1 – The boiler grant scheme, was introduced in 2013 to help millions of fuel poor households (those who spend more than 10% of their annual income on fuel) to replace their old or faulty central heating boilers for free.

2 – Only homeowners are eligible to apply.

Since October 2017 the government have changed the rules of the scheme which now excludes the Private Rented Sector.

Landlords now have to take responsibility for their gas heating in their properties.

3 – Boiler grants should be available until the Energy Company Obligation closes its doors on the scheme in September 2022 .

We do recommend that you do not delay if you are interested in applying as the scheme can be cut short at any time.

4 – If you qualify for the scheme you will receive a grant towards a brand new boiler (usually up to 75% is awarded depending on your property type and bedroom number ) which should result in cheaper bills.

You could save up to £300 a year if you’re replacing a G-rated boiler which are extremely inefficient

5 – The Boiler Grant Scheme 2019 is still being touted as a scheme to replace boilers for free however, due to funding cuts people are being asked to make a small contribution.

This contribution usually starts from £399 – £799 for a straight combi swap assuming no extras are needed.

This is a fantastic saving and is still very popular (apart from the free loaders who will not pay anything and make multiple applications trying to get it for free!  Sad 🙂

6: Benefits Needed To Apply

 The scheme isn’t open to everyone unfortunately.

 You have to be on certain qualifying benefits to apply and the criteria is very strict.

 Pensioners need to be in receipt of Pension Guarantee Credit and people of working age need to be on means tested benefits or on a disability benefit

 In a nutshell, if you’re on specific benefits and meet set criteria there’s a subsidised boiler grant out there with your name on it. !

7- Energy providers risk massive fines if they don’t meet carbon emissions targets set by the Government.

8 : Boilers eligible for replacement must be over 6 years with a fault found.

 Usually a valid reason to replace is that they are found to be less than 86% or they have an intermittent fault.

9 – Free Insulation Check Included with all applications.

The government wants all homes in the UK to be as insulated as possible and so as part of the process we will ensure that your loft and cavity are checked for possible new insulation.

10 – Over one million boilers have been replaced since 2013.

Is The £400 Boiler Scrappage Scheme Still Available?


No!  The Boiler Scrappage Scheme that gave everyone a £400 voucher to scrap their old boiler ( regardless of whether they claimed a benefit ) ended in 2010.

You can however apply for a free boiler if you receive a benefit.
