COVID-19 Notice: We’re still installing & repairing boilers, safely

Boiler Grants

Could you be eligible for a free or subsidised new boiler?

Under the Governments Energy Company Obligation (ECO) Scheme in 2019, we have helped qualified homeowners receive an average discount of 60% off of the cost of replacing their old, inefficient boilers. If you qualify, we can arrange everything from the initial survey to completing the installation of your new boiler.

Why is the scheme available?

Through the ECO Scheme, the UK government is attempting to drastically cut carbon emissions by providing grants to help fund the installation of modern boilers, whilst reducing heating bills of low-income households and those at risk of fuel poverty.

The grants are funded by the ‘Big Six’ energy suppliers and are non-repayable which means you do not have to pay the money back at any time in the future. NCS have helped thousands of home owners throughout the UK via the free boiler scheme. You can see if you could qualify using our simple online application form below.

Please complete the application form below if you believe you may be eligible for a Government grant to fund part of the cost of a new boiler. In some circumstances, it can cover the entire cost. The amount of funding available is also subject to a site survey to be carried out at your convenience by NCS.

Who is eligible?

Only those in receipt of certain benefits will fit the criteria to claim a free boiler grant. In addition, the boiler to be replaced must be at least 14 years old (non condensing), or, be between 8-13 years old but have faults which affect its efficiency and operation. These faults must be deemed by one of our qualified engineers to be beyond ‘economical’ repair.

A person living at private domestic premises is an eligible member of the HTHG if the person is a core group customer from 1 April 2019 (scheme year 9) 49 onwards under the Warm Home Discount scheme, or receives at least one of the following benefits and satisfies the relevant income requirements, where applicable:

  • Armed Forces Independence Payment
