Affordable Warmth Obligation (HHCRO)

Also known as the Home Heat Cost Reduction Obligation, this obligation provides free boiler and insulation grants to private homeowners and tenants who receive certain means-tested benefits. It aims to reduce fuel poverty amongst low-income households by ensuring that heat is generated as efficiently as possible and is prevented from escaping from the home.

The UK government's ECO scheme could provide you with a boiler grant

As part of the UK government's Energy Company Obligation (ECO), if you receive a qualifying benefit and your boiler is 10+ years old, you may be entitled to grant funding towards a brand new A-rated boiler.

The free boiler grants are funded by UK energy companies and don't need to be repaid. 

Why replace your old boiler?

Why replace your old boiler?

With energy bills more expensive than ever, your boiler needs to be heating your home for the lowest possible cost and your old boiler could be losing you on average around £305 a year.

Boilers installed in the UK are required to be condensing boilers. These are far more efficient than traditional boilers as they release gas at just 55 degrees Celsius (rather than 180 degrees), therefore requiring less energy to generate the same amount of heat.

Less energy means lower bills and if you meet the qualification criteria you may be eligible for a free boiler grant.
