What could this mean for you?

The ECO4 scheme is a continuation of the UK Government’s Energy Company Obligation initiative, aimed at improving energy efficiency and reducing fuel poverty in homes. Under the ECO4 scheme, which runs until March 2026, the focus is on supporting low-income households to upgrade their homes and heating systems. The scheme has undergone changes from its previous phase (ECO3), notably in the eligibility criteria for receiving grants. Unfortunately, Disability Living Allowance (DLA) is no longer a qualifying benefit under ECO4​.

However, there are still avenues for those not receiving benefits or on different forms of assistance to potentially qualify for support under the scheme. The government has expanded and reformed local authority flexibility, allowing suppliers to deliver up to 50% of their obligation through this route, aiming to support low-income groups not in receipt of benefits. The ECO4 scheme provides grants for a range of energy-efficient upgrades, including insulation and the installation of greener heating systems, with an emphasis on homes with an efficiency rating of ‘D’ or below to first improve their insulation before any heating system upgrades

How to get a free boiler grant if you are on disability living allowance?

Although Disability Living Allowance (DLA) is no longer directly listed as a qualifying benefit under the new phase of the ECO scheme, ECO4, individuals receiving DLA may still qualify for boiler grants if they meet other criteria set by the scheme or if they are eligible under the Local Authority Flexible Eligibility (LA Flex) scheme.

To qualify for a free boiler under these schemes, typically, you must be a homeowner, live in the UK, and have an old, inefficient boiler. The ECO scheme and LA Flex aim to help low-income households improve their energy efficiency, which in turn helps reduce heating bills and carbon footprints. Although the schemes prioritize household income and energy efficiency, many individuals on disability-focused benefits may still qualify under the broader criteria, especially if they receive other qualifying benefits such as Universal Credit or have a low household income.

What type of boiler can qualify for a free ECO central heating grant?

The ECO scheme primarily targets the replacement of older, inefficient heating systems with more energy-efficient options, such as A-rated combi condensing boilers. These boilers are known for their top-tier energy efficiency, equipped with intelligent timers and room thermostats for optimal heating control, and thermostatic radiator valves for efficient heat distribution. The scheme specifically focuses on replacing non-condensing boilers, which are typically older models that allow a significant amount of heat to escape through flue gases. Upgrading to a condensing boiler can significantly enhance energy efficiency, reducing energy bills and carbon footprint​​.

For a boiler to qualify for a free ECO central heating grant, it must usually be an inefficient model that is being replaced by a more efficient system, such as a condensing boiler. Specific conditions, like having an existing mains gas supply prior to a certain date or meeting certain energy performance criteria (EPC ratings), might also apply. The aim is to target homes that would benefit most from energy savings and reduced carbon emissions through the installation of more efficient heating solutions​​.

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.
