Free Boiler Grant with (Benefits)

Free government-backed boiler and insulation grants with Heat4Energy.

Homeowners in Peterlee can benefit from lower energy bills by taking advantage of free replacement boilers and insulation. Working with the government’s free boiler scheme – the ECO Scheme, Heat4Energy supports qualifying people to apply for non-repayable grants which cover the costs of installing new boilers.

This includes costs for:

  • Surveying the current heating system at your property
  • Removing and disposing of old equipment 
  • Supplying and fitting brand new, more efficient boilers, insulation, and home heating systems. 

Through the ECO Scheme, Heat4Energy allows people and families in Peterlee to reduce their bills for free, or at least heavily subsidised in a small number of circumstances. The scheme was created to ensure the UK’s biggest energy providers meet their obligation under the provision of ‘Affordable Warmth’. The idea is to help people within the UK population – including those on low incomes and receiving benefits – to bring down their cost of living.

People and families must meet certain criteria to qualify for free boiler funding in Peterlee. You can check if you qualify by clicking on our online eligibility form and our experts will get in touch.

The type of property you reside in is also an important factor that is considered. If your property is older and lacks efficiency, it will be eligible for a higher amount of funding towards the Peterlee Free Boiler Grant.

In the event that you possess an exceptionally efficient property, it may be necessary for you to make a modest contribution towards the installation expenses. Additionally, it is essential that your property is connected to a mains gas, oil, or LPG supply.
