Under the Government's Affordable Warmth scheme households with old or inefficient oil-fired heating systems who receive certain State benefits may be entitled to a free replacement boiler. 

The scheme aims to reduce carbon emissions whilst also helping to tackle fuel poverty. Targets are given to the large energy suppliers to deliver energy efficiency measures in the UK. Although the large energy companies are Gas & Electric suppliers, the government scheme now targets them with helping homes with oil boilers.

We're working in conjunction with a select number of approved ECO scheme installers to offer our customers the opportunity to see if you could receive a free oil boiler* through the Government funded scheme.

You can see if you're eligible for a Free Oil boiler by using our simple form here. Alternatively, you can read about the criteria below. (*Terms & Conditions do apply).
