Boiler Grants Scotland

We help people in Scotland get free grants & funding for new boilers.

Boiler Grants In Scotland

Grants for free boilers in Scotland are available to some homeowners through the Government-backed Energy Company Obligation (ECO4) scheme. Other funds & grants are also available for people not qualifying for ECO4.

Why is this? The Scottish government wants to reduce carbon emissions & lower the cost of heating (particularly for vulnerable people). See our FAQs for info on the eligibility rules.

Under the new ECO4 scheme, grants are available until 2026 for eligible households to make energy-saving improvements. This includes upgrading inefficient boilers. fitting heat pumps, solar panels & insulation.

How do we help? We provide a free service to Scottish homeowners, by helping them obtain free grants and/or funding for new boilers & other improvements. To date, we have obtained more than £3m of grants for our customers in Scotland.

While free boiler grants are available for some homeowners, other incentives are also available. Our team’s priority is to help you establish the most economical way of getting a new boiler (and any other kind of energy-saving improvement).

Please get in touch to ask any questions. Even better, just fill in a few details to check your eligibility & we will call you back.

Why Upgrade Your Boiler?

There are lots of reasons to get a boiler upgrade. Here are just some of them…

Lower Heating Costs

The increased efficiency of a new boiler means you’ll spend less on fuel, reducing your heating expenses.

Lower Carbon Emissions

Using an A-rated boiler reduces carbon emissions because it burns fuel more efficiently. This is better for the environment & costs less.

Improved Heating Performance

New, efficient boilers provide more consistent and reliable heating performance, ensuring your home stays warm and comfortable.

Longer Lifespan

New boilers have longer lifespans, reducing the need for frequent repairs. This helps lower long-term maintenance and heating costs.

We can help check if you are eligible for ECO4, ECO4 Flex & any of the other initiatives in Scotland.

What is the ECO4 scheme?

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO4) is the 4th phase of a UK government initiative to address fuel poverty and carbon emissions. Energy companies must implement energy efficiency measures in homes, with flexibility in project selection, funding, and partners.

It began on April 1, 2022, and runs until March 31, 2026. ECO4 targets homes in bands D-G, focusing on comprehensive retrofits to improve the whole house. It mandates upgrades for homes in bands E, F, and G, setting minimum energy efficiency requirements.

These upgrades include insulation, central heating, renewable energy, renewable heating, and district heating connections.

Is the ECO4 scheme available in Scotland?

Yes – the ECO4 scheme is available to every home in Scotland, from the Scottish Borders up to the Highlands & Islands. We help customers in all parts of Scotland gain funding for their energy-saving upgrades.

Which companies can I trust to help with ECO4 upgrades & grants?

Energy companies collaborate with third-party retrofit coordinators and installers to fulfill their ECO obligations. You may even have been contacted directly by these coordinators or installers regarding ECO4 projects.

Since January 1, 2020, the government has mandated that all installers conducting ECO measures must be a Trustmark Registered Business or an equivalent certification. This requirement also applies to ECO4 measures. When approached by a company claiming to be an installer, it’s crucial to verify their credentials. Look for the following certifications to confirm their registration with a consumer protection body:

  1. For most ECO measures, they should be installed by or under the supervision of a TrustMark-registered installer, identifiable by their registration number.
  2. If the installation involves a district heating connection, the installer must be registered with Heat Trust or have equivalent consumer protection measures in place.
  3. Installers should also possess the relevant certification to uphold installation standards for the specific measure types:
    • Most installations require a PAS (Publicly Available Specification) certified installer with a registration number.
    • When dealing with low-carbon microgeneration measures (e.g., renewable heat production), the installer must be MCS (Microgeneration Certification Scheme) accredited and listed on the MCS website.
    • For gas boiler repairs or replacements, the company should be registered with Gas Safe, which can be verified on the Gas Safe website.
    • For oil boiler repairs, installers must be registered with OFTEC (Oil Firing Technical Association), and this can be confirmed on the OFTEC website.

Naturally, we tick all of these boxes, so please fill out the questionnaire below to see if we can help you get a grant.

Are these grants genuine?

These grants are genuine. The Scottish government has introduced initiatives to reduce fuel poverty & make more homes energy efficient. You can visit their website here if you would like more info – Scottish Energy Grants.

These schemes are not to be confused with so-called “grants” or “funding” to upgrade your windows or bathrooms.
