Pay Monthly Worcester Boilers

Let us explain how you can apply for a Free boiler with help from the Government

Getting a new boiler can be very expensive. It can also be difficult to find a suitably qualified tradesman to install the boiler. Look no further! We are now offering free repair or replacement of all LPG and oil boilers to homes that meet the Government’s criteria.

Now you can get a new boiler for free and also have it installed in your home for free. The scheme is simple, and if you’re able to quality for a brand new boiler, it’s not an opportunity to be missed.

What is the Government scheme

In 2013, the UK Government introduced an energy efficiency scheme in the UK to help reduce pollution and tackle fuel poverty. The Government revised this scheme in 2017 and has now introduced a set of eligibility criteria for the scheme.

As part of the revised scheme, the Government is offering to replace or repair old boilers at no cost to you whatsoever if you qualify. The Government is rolling out this scheme so that older boilers can be replaced with more energy efficient boilers which reduces the cost of heating your home.

Provided you qualify for a free boiler, we are able to install the boiler in your home in Manchester or anywhere across North West England.
