Home owners may be eligible to claim up to £1,000 towards the cost of a new natural gas boiler and heating system under the Boiler Replacement Scheme. This is a Department for Communities scheme, administered by the Northern Ireland Housing Executive.
The scheme is open to owner occupiers whose household income is less than £40,000, who have a boiler of at least 15 years old. The allowance does not apply to Economy 7 heating, stoves used only for cooking, back boilers or room heaters.
The grant of up to £1,000 is dependent on total gross annual income and is available to help with replacing an inefficient boiler with a more energy efficient condensing gas boiler.
The amount of grant payable will depend on total gross income. For those earning less than £20,000 the grant is £700 to replace the boiler but will rise to £1,000 if controls are also being installed.
For those earning over £20,000 but less than £40,000 the grant is £400 for the boiler but will rise to £500 if controls are installed.
You must receive written approval from the Housing Executive before you replace your old boiler.
