Boiler Replacement Scheme

Date 6 July 2012

A new scheme is being introduced this autumn to replace old and inefficient boilers. If you own your own home and earn less than £40,000 you may be eligible for a grant of up to £1,000 to replace your boiler, if it is more than 15 years old.

The grant can be used to either:

  • Replace an old inefficient boiler with a more energy-efficient oil or gas boiler
  • Switch from oil to gas or
  • Switch to a wood pellet boiler.

Replacing old boilers will help you reduce your energy bills and make your home more energy efficient.

If you think that you might be eligible, you can register for the scheme by phoning 0300 200 7874, or send an email to
