    Buying a house - boiler grant? 13th May 18 at 11:42 AM
    I have a disability, MS.

    I am buying a new house to better suit my needs. The boiler is really old, as well as the electrics. In my previous house in 2010 I was able to get a new combi boiler free from Warm Front, does a scheme like that still exist, if not how do I apply for help in purchasing a new boiler?

    Thanks for readng.

    I'd ring the Energy Saving Trust as recommended in the article.

    I can't link to resources so you'll have to Google.

    1. ECO Scheme
    2. Affordable Warmth Obligation

    Don't fall for companies touting the Boiler Scrappage Scheme, it doesn't exist anymore.

    I'm sure you'll be able to get one fitted at no cost to you, especially as you say it's old.

    the criteria has changed since the warm front scheme as i got a free boiler through that because i received DLA ( i have MS too).
    However, 2 years ago (different property) i didnt qualify.
    (my circumstances hadnt changed other than i'd bought a different house)
    my eyes are like mirrors. They reflect whats going on around me rather than whats inside
