Grants available for all new boilers

Households on Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit (IIDB) are not directly eligible for ECO4 Central Heating grants. The ECO4 scheme, which is the latest version of the Energy Company Obligation (ECO), targets lower-income households to enhance energy efficiency. It provides funding for various measures such as cavity wall insulation, gas boiler replacement/upgrade, and first-time central heating, among others.

However, according to the information provided, IIDB is specifically listed as one of the benefits that do not qualify an individual for the ECO4 grants. This means that if a household’s only qualifying benefit is IIDB, they would not be eligible for the ECO4 Central Heating grants under the current rules.

It’s important to note that the ECO4 scheme has eligibility criteria that include certain benefits, but IIDB is not among them. The qualifying benefits for ECO4 typically include Pension Credit, Universal Credit, Income-based Jobseekers Allowance, and Income-related Employment & Support Allowance, among others.


How do people on Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit qualify for a heating grant?

Households receiving Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit (IIDB) are not typically eligible for the ECO4 Central Heating grants. The ECO4 scheme, part of the Energy Company Obligation (ECO), provides funding for various energy efficiency measures, including central heating grants.

However, IIDB is not among the qualifying benefits for this scheme. While the scheme is primarily aimed at low-income households receiving specific benefits, IIDB is not included in the list of qualifying benefits. Therefore, individuals solely receiving IIDB may not meet the eligibility criteria for the ECO4 Central Heating grants.

People on Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit may qualify for a heating grant through the following scheme:

Winter Fuel Payment: This is a one-off payment of £100 to £300 to help with heating costs in winter. Most people get it automatically if they receive Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit, but some may need to claim it

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

As well as the applicant, the boiler that requires replacing must qualify as well, for a home to receive a free central heating grant via the ECO scheme.

In order to answer the established criteria, the boiler that needs replacing must be operating with an efficiency level no greater than 86 percent of its top capacity. Boilers that are operating with this standard of efficiency are typically rated from C to G, with the most efficient boiler carrying an A rating. Boilers that are around five years old or more are commonly found in this category and will meet the set criteria.

If boilers are confirmed to be damaged beyond viable repair expenses, they are also eligible for a grant as well as those with faults in functionality. Common faults in older models of boiler that could see them qualify include constantly requiring repressurising, pilot lights that won’t stay lit, models that leak water and produce considerable noise or those that are not able to provide basic central heating and hot water.

Even if a boiler has none of these issues, if it is C rated or lower for efficiency or is five years or older, it should be eligible to be replaced for free.

Who is eligible for a free boiler grant?

To receive a free boiler grant, then you or someone in your home must be a recipient of one of the following benefits:

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.
