A Boiler grant can be claimed by UK home owners, private tenants or landlords who are in receipt of income or disability benefits. The grants cover some or all of the cost of a brand-new A-rated boiler and they never have to be paid back.
As long as your current boiler is over 5 years old and someone in the household receives a qualifying benefit, you should be entitled to a boiler grant.
If your current boiler is more than 5 years old, it is likely to be rated at less than 86% efficiency i.e., C rated or below and should qualify for replacement, regardless of whether or not it is faulty.
Common faults include losing pressure, leaking water, pilot light going out, making noises, no heating or hot water or both.
It will also qualify for replacement if it is broken beyond economical repair.
Someone living in the household must be claiming a benefit or tax credit. The property must also be privately owned.
