Choose your new boiler, you can get different types, please see below.
“Combi” or Combination Boiler
A combination or ‘combi’ boiler is both a high-efficiency water heater and a central heating boiler in a single compact unit. Combi boilers heat water directly from the mains when you turn on a tap, so you won’t need a hot water storage cylinder or a cold water storage tank in the roof space.
- Compact sizes make combi boilers perfect for smaller properties
- Ideal where there is little or no loft space
- No need for a hot water cylinder allows increased living space
- No cold water storage tank frees up a loft for conversion
- No risk of loft pipework freezing
- Less pipework in the home makes installation typically cheaper
These boilers are also compatible with solar water heating systems, which deliver environmental benefits as well as lower energy bills.
“Conventional” or Regular Boilers
Regular boilers (sometimes known as traditional, conventional or heat only boilers are ideally suited to homes that already have a traditional heating and hot water system which is linked to a separate hot water cylinder. These boilers also need a cold water storage tank in the loft to feed the hot water cylinder as well as a tank that maintains the water level of the central heating system.
A regular boiler may be the best option for replacing an existing boiler if the property has an older radiator system, as it might not be able to cope with the higher water pressure that is delivered by system or combi boilers.
- Perfect for homes where a lot of hot water is used at the same time
- Ideal where there are two or more bathrooms
- A good option in areas where water pressure is low
- Compatible with solar water heating systems for a lower carbon footprint and lower energy costs
System boilers require a cylinder for storing hot water, however, the major heating and hot water system components are built into the boiler itself, making it quicker and easier to install. In addition, there is no need for a tank in the loft, so it can be an option in a home with little or no loft space or where space is earmarked for a conversion.
They are also very cost-effective and energy-efficient as water is heated instantly rather than being heated and then stored in a cylinder. An added benefit is that hot water is delivered at mains pressure, which means that you could get a powerful shower without the need for a separate pump.
- Ideal for homes with more than one bathroom
- A constant supply of hot water to any number of taps at the same time
- No need for a loft tank, freeing up space and eliminating worries about leaks or frost damage
- Economical to run
- Built-in components make installation quicker and neater
Question and Answers
Where does the funding come from?
It is a central government scheme, it is administered by ofgem who oversee the entire scheme and report to central government
Will I definately get a grant and be able to my free boiler?
The grants are subject to terms and conditions like many things, we have to ensure that you qualify and that the improvements that you are looking for follow the scheme directives, we can confirm to you usually within just a few minutes if you are likely to qualify.
Can I use anyome to install the boiler?
No, the boiler must be installed by a gas safe registered engineer who also holds additional qualifications and is registered under the scheme. You can choose any of the installers that are registered under the scheme, so you will always have a choice.
Do all the registered installers offer the same boilers and other improvements?
No, this is why it is important that you contact an organisation like ourselves who is not toed or working for any one installer.
The installers can choose which boilers they install as well as the type of jobs they want to do. They also can charge what they want to and may also receive different levels of funding due to there being more that one source of funding for the scheme.
Does that mean that some installers might do it for free or very nearly free whilst others may make a significant charge?
Yes, we are aware of instances where applicants have been charged a significant client contribution where there are other schemes or installers who may have done it free or very nearly free.
We are also aware of applicants being told they must have a certain type of boiler or one from a specific manufacturer, this is not correct you can have any type of boiler from any manufacturer providing it complies with the scheme requirements.
Why should I contact you?
We do not work for anyone installer or manufacturer, we can offer a choice and if you have a preference usually ensure that this is offered. We can also offer you access to other schemes or funders that may be able to offer a better offer or install your choice of boiler either free or nearly free.
Case Study – (Free Boiler Grant Scheme)
We were contacted by a client; they live in a two bedroomed park home and needed a new LPG gas boiler.
They qualified as they received a qualifying benefit and a survey was carried out by an installer who proposed to install the new boiler under the grant scheme.
The client was told that whilst they qualified, they would need to contribute nearly £1000.00 towards the boiler.
We arranged for the client to get another estimate from an alternative installer that we referred them to; they had in the past installed several boilers in the area to an excellent standard.
Our intention was to get a quotation using a boiler with similar specifications to the existing boiler in their home.
They surveyed the property and were able to install the boiler totally free for the client.
The job was carried out which took just 1 day to complete within a week of the survey, the client obviously was very pleased as unfortunately they were not in a position to proceed otherwise.
