This list is not exhaustive.
Why Do These Boilers NOT Qualify For The Grant?
Condensing Boilers Are Not Eligible
If your boiler is a condensing boiler ( it has a white plastic pipe leading to outside ) YOU ARE NOT ELIGIBLE.
The Government Is Only Giving Grants For Boilers Fitted Before 2005.
This is the new rule unfortunately.
What is a condensing boiler?
A condensing boiler usually is a boiler that has been fitted after 2005 that is the most efficient one on the market.
They usually run on gas or oil and has been designed to help improve energy efficiency. This is done by converting water vapor condensation into heat which is recovered from some of the lost heat from waste gases.
These new boilers can achieve over 90% energy efficiency and are now mandatory when replacing a gas boiler.
how do I know if my boiler is condensing?
INSTALL DATE – If your boiler was installed after April 2005, new regulations came into place stating that all boilers fitted after this date had to be condensing.
All new boilers manufactured after date also had to be condensing.
condensing Boiler Check
Check the flue outside.
Boilers with a metal flue for excess gases, are usually non-condensing.
Condensing flues are usually through an external wall or your roof.
Steam and drainpipe.
If you can see the steam coming from the flue (through an external wall or roof, and if you also have a white plastic pipe leading to a drain, this will certainly be from a condensing boiler.
My Condensing Boiler Is Completely Broken, Can I Apply For a Free Boiler?
No. If your boiler is condensing, you are not eligible under any circumstances.
You will need to either get it fixed or bite the bullet and pay for a new one.
Where Can I Get The Best Boiler Deal?
We recommend you consult a local small one man band Gas safe engineer, preferably one that has been recommended to you.
You should be able to get a boiler exchange on a like for like basis for less than £2000.
If you go to British Gas or one of the other large energy companies you can easily pay up to £5000.
You will get a great service and full support that a large company can give you but you will pay handsomely for the pleasure.
