Free Storage Heater Qualifying Criteria - The Details

1. Your Home

You must live in your own home or one which you rent from a private landlord.

Householders living in Council owned properties or Housing Association properties are not included in Free Storage Heater Qualifying Criteria at the moment. Also, free storage heater grants are not available to householders who live in Shared Ownership properties.

2. Your State Benefits or Tax Credits

You, or someone living with you, must receive at least one of the following State Benefits or Tax Credits:

  • Guaranteed Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit *
  • Working Tax Credit *
  • Universal Credit *
  • Income-Based Job Seeker’s Allowance (JSA)
  • Income-Related Employment & Support Allowance (ESA)
  • Income Support

Those benefits marked with * are subject to maximum household income thresholds based on the number of adults and children who permanently live in your home. Please see the table below for these income thresholds.

3. Your Electric Storage Heaters

You must have at least one faulty electric storage heater installed in your home which can be removed and replaced with a new one.

To be classed as faulty it means that when it is connected to an electricity supply, it does not store heat or it does not deliver heat. This could include:

  • a damaged thermal fuse or input cut-out
  • failure of storage elements
  • a faulty charge control
  • a faulty output control
  • a faulty electronic controller
  • a faulty or broken fan
Your electric storage heaters will be tested to establish whether they meet Free Storage Heater Qualifying Criteria

Free Storage Heater Qualifying Criteria - ECO Scheme
FREE STORAGE HEATER Qualifying Criteria - Dimplex Quantum
If you do not have electric storage heaters installed in your home, you will not satisfy the Free Storage Heater Qualifying Criteria.

However, if you have a faulty Oil Boiler or a faulty LPG boiler AND you satisfy qualifying criteria in respect of your home AND your benefits, you may qualify for an ECO Grant to replace it.

Free Storage Heater Qualifying Criteria - Household Income Thresholds
Your Storage Heater Grant may not cover the full cost of replacing all of the electric storage heaters in your home.

If you satisfy the Free Storage Heater Qualifying Criteria but your ECO Grant does not cover the full cost of replacing the electric storage heaters in your home, you will have the chance to make up the shortfall.  Should you choose not to contribute to the cost of replacement electric storage heaters, your application will be cancelled and you will have nothing to pay for the initial survey.
