What Is Included With The Central Heating Grant?

Leading Brand 'A' Rated Boilers & Radiators

The central heating grant gives you access to a range of leading boiler and radiator brands and to install in your home.

Thermostatic Radiator Valves

This allows you to control the heating on each radiator, independently.

Magnetic Filter

This will keep water running clean and prevent blockages, extending life of your new boiler.

Pipes and fittings

All pipes and fittings are installed as well as protective chemicals put into the system to protect your boiler even further.

How To Qualify For The Central Heating Grant?

If you have no heating system or a system that does not involve a boiler and radiators then you will be eligible for the grant. For you to be successful in your application and to be approved for the grant, somebody living at the property must be in receipt of one or more of the qualifying state benefits such as child benefits or universal credit.

Usually a full list of these qualifying state benefits are stated on our application form. In some cases there may be exceptions to this rule if the household qualifies under the ECO flex rules. 

Applicants under the central heating grant scheme must satisfy the following criteria:

Applicants must receive a combination of the following Government benefits:

*Child benefit has some specific income requirements that also apply in order to qualify for funding, this is found in the table below.

Number of Children1234+
Single Claimant£19,900£24,800£29,600£34,500


Please note that if you are an applicant in receipt of pension credits and child tax credits where your annual household incomes is less than £16,010, you automatically qualify for a central heating grant under the Affordable Warmth Scheme.

Due to the way in which funding restrictions work in relation to the Affordable Warmth Scheme there are cases in which some households will be asked to contribute towards the cost of installing a new central heating system.

If you are an applicant in receipt of child tax credits, working tax credits and universal credits you will be assessed based on your household income thresholds. The thresholds are calculated in relation to the number of bedrooms in the property and the number of adults & children living in your home. 

The ECO scheme also dictates whether homeowners should have a replacement central heating system installed if the property already has a boiler and central heating system installed and if the current boiler in the property is broken or more than five years old. If the boiler is less than five years old then the free replacement scheme will assume that it will be more cost effective to repair the boiler than to replace it entirely.

What Are The Benefits of The Central Heating Grant?

There are a number of benefits to the first time central heating grant. If you do not currently have any central heating and are left wondering if you should take advantage of the government backed first time central heating grant, then the answer is simple. The funding allocated to this grant means that you could experience lower monthly heating bills for you and your family and at the same time improve your standard of living by living in a warmer and more comfortable environment.

A central heating system is also known to be a much more reliable and efficient way to heat your home and at the same time reduce carbon emissions. The latest central heating systems on the market are now designed to be smart, allowing you complete control of when to heat your home and how warm to have it; this is all controlled through an app on your phone or a small electronic device in the house.

Are There Any Central Heating Grants For Over 60's?

Yes, central heating grants for over 60’s are now available for homeowners, private tenants and landlords. The central heating grant for over 60’s is part of a government back scheme called the Energy Companies Obligation or more commonly known as ECO. In some cases the scheme can cover the full cost of the work carried out and it does not have to be paid back. In other cases a small contribution may have to be made towards the grant.

Providing that homeowners, private tenants and landlords like yourself meet the criteria for the ECO scheme, Warma UK can arrange for you to receive a free no obligation survey from an approved ECO installer working in your local area. Even if you do not qualify for a central heating grant, we can help in a number of ways such as applying for Green Deal Finance which can help you towards getting a full central heating and boiler system installed in your property.

Should I Apply For a Central Heating Grant?

If you feel that you fit the above criteria then you should definitely think about applying for a first time central heating grant! The grants are available for people experiencing central heating problems, such as boiler pressure dropping or rising, boiler kettling or leaking, and other safety-related risks.

Take advantage of the scheme with green home improvements and installation of an error-free boiler to ensure you remain warm during the winter and to improve your standard of living. Even if you do not qualify for a first time central heating grant then there are other options through the green deal to take advantage of; such as the low interest rate financing of a new boiler and central heating system.

What is the ECO Initiative?

In the meantime, the Energy Company Obligation initiative was created by the government with the aim of making it mandatory for the UK’s mainstream energy suppliers to offer free insulation for cavity walls and lofts. It is under the ECO initiative  that an additional scheme was created, the Affordable Warmth Scheme which might provide you with a central heating grant if you qualify. First time central heating grants are available from the government as part of the ECO initiative as this works towards reducing fuel poverty throughout the UK. 

Moving properties from electric or other off gas heating sources will reduce carbon emissions and help towards the government’s commitment to reducing carbon emissions in the UK to net 0% by the year 2050.

Don’t often do reviews but felt this warranted one. A little slow getting the fitting date sorted out but once this had been sorted everything was plain sailing from start to finish. Can’t fault the engineer who fitted my combi boiler. Nothing was to much trouble to him, explained everything has he went along. Would recommend without hesitation.

The old boiler and tank were removed and the new condensing boiler fitted by the two installers from XL Heating. They were friendly, informative and tidy, working well as a team for two days. So far very happy.
