Free Boiler For Pensioners Edinburgh

Pensioners who live in Edinburgh are entitled to a free boiler through the governments ECO 4 grant and the LEAP boiler scheme. 

Free boilers are not all that pensioners can benefit from, there are other products that improve your homes energy efficiency including free home insulation, free solar panels and free renewable heating.

Pensioners can apply for more than one product for example a free boiler and free loft insulation and to see how much funding you qualify for.

Free Boiler For People Over 60 in Edinburgh

The exact criteria for those who qualify for a free boiler other than the slightly vague definition of “pensioners” are people over 60 years of age, who are in receipt of certain benefits, specifically pension credits. To qualify for the governments ECO 4 grant your property must also have an EPC rating of D, E, F or G. Grants for the LEAP boiler scheme are far more flexible and available to anyone over 60 years of age who receives a pension.

Boiler Grants Pensioners Qualify For

As stated above the two main grants available that provide a free boiler for pensioners in Scotland are the ECO 4 grant and the LEAP boiler scheme. If you are a pensioner over 60 years of age and on benefits, you are almost certain to qualify for a free boiler through the LEAP boiler scheme.

Free Combi Boilers Available

You would assume when you are getting a brand new boiler free of charge that it would be an economy type model, however, that is not the case. In the past, ECO schemes and installers couldn’t tell you what make your free boiler was going to be, simply stating it would be a “free A rated boiler” or words to that effect. Using the funding provided by either the ECO 4 grant or the LEAP boiler scheme, Home Renewables Scotland will install a Worcester Bosch or Baxi combi boiler, two of the most premium brands available in the UK marketplace.


Worcester Combi Boiler

Worcester Bosch are the leading boiler manufacturer in the United Kingdom. Their combi boilers are one of the most premium brands available in the UK in 2023. The Worcester Bosch Greenstar range really propelled the brand, as this model provided a more affordable boiler to a greater number of households in the country, that though lower in cost, still maintained Worcester Bosch quality.

Baxi Combi Boiler

Baxi is one of Europe’s largest manufacturers of boilers and domestic water heating systems. Although based throughout Europe, Baxi’s headquarters are located in the town of Warwick in the United Kingdom. 

Much like Worcester, Baxi has a wide range of combi, system and heat only boilers. We almost exclusively install their combi boilers. Baxi is another leading boiler brand in the UK market, although slightly more affordable than Worcester it is by no means a “cheap boiler”.

Free Gas, Electric and Oil Boiler

We can advise on which product is best depending what you have now, for example if you have an existing gas boiler, then a new gas combi boiler is the most obvious replacement. Should you have an electric or oil boiler, it might be better to install free solar panels or an air source heat pump. This depends if you have an existing gas meter installed in your property before the 31st of March 2022. Should this be the case, we can install a free boiler and full central heating system if there is currently no gas boiler or central heating radiators in place. Switching to gas central heating is always more cost effective, reducing your energy bills and making your home more energy efficient.
