With the Government’s Help to Heat Scheme, you could be eligible for one of our Free Oil Boiler Grants

Am I eligible for  a free oil boiler?

There are 3 main ways that you could be eligible for one of our oil boiler grants:

  • If you receive qualifying benefits
  • If you are on a low income and have high heating costs*
  • If you have a low income and someone in your home has a long term illness*

*The last 2 options are only available in certain local authority areas, if you are not on benefit but you are on a low income, please get in touch and we will confirm if your local authority area is covered by this scheme

Sorry but the grants are not available for social housing.

Which benefits apply?

You should be eligible if you, or anyone living in your home receives one of these benefits:

  • Pension Guarantee Credit
  • Child or Working Tax Credit*
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • Income Support
  • Universal Credit*

I am not on benefit but I am on a low income or suffer from an illness, am I eligible?

In some local authority areas it is possible for you to be eligible for the heating grant if you are on a low income and have high heating costs, for example you live in a large home with solid walls, or if you are on a low income and someone in your home suffers from a long term illness which can in some cases include mental health issues.  Currently most of the southwest is covered by this scheme including Cornwall but local authorities around Britain are also signing up.  If you believe you may fit these criteria please get in touch, we will need to ask you a series of questions and find out which local authority your home comes under.  We will then confirm if we are able to assist you with a heating grant.


Are park homes and caravans covered by these heating grants?

Farm caravanYes! Park homes and caravans are eligible for heating upgrades subject to the person living in the home being eligible as above.  If the person living in the park home is in benefits their benefits will need to be registered at the address of the park home.  If the benefits are not registered at the park home, we may still be able to help but we will need evidence that the person on benefit lives in the park home such as letters from a bank, council tax bills etc.

Free oil boiler grants from Happy Energy are available for homes across Great Britain

Depending on the size of your home,  our oil  boiler grants may mean that we can offer you a completely free boiler, but in some cases, mainly in very small homes, the boiler grants are not enough to make the work free and a contribution may be required, but we will confirm this with a free survey.

Roughly what will the grant cover?
  • Larger homes (especially those with solid walls) – free oil boiler upgrade
  • Smaller homes or those that are already well insulated – you may have to make a contribution towards the cost of the works

If our boiler grants and storage heater grants do not cover all of the cost of the works, you can either pay the difference, consider a finance package which we can arrange (subject to credit status) or if your property is rented, you may be able to ask your landlord to contribute as it is their property that is benefiting from the upgrade.

  • Choose Happy Energy for your free boiler works
  • Our local installers are all qualified Gas Safe or Oftec engineers
  • Our engineers are professionals and do their best to keep things neat and tidy during the installation
  • We will look after your boiler for the length of the warranty
