Why Are Boiler Grants Available For Pensioners?

Boiler grants are available for lots of different people across the country, this includes pensioners. While a range of different types of people are eligible for a boiler grant, pensioners may find they have easier access to a boiler grant than others. This is because of the following:

In Receipt of Benefits: Pensioners are more likely to be receiving a benefit such as Pension Credit Savings or Pension Credit Guarantee, which is one of the qualifying criteria for a boiler grant.

Low Household Income: Pensioners are more likely to have a lower household income of less than £31,000 per year. This isn’t true for all cases but it is the case frequently.

Poor Household Energy Efficiency: As pensioners have likely to have owned their own homes for a long time, it stands to reason that they could have a poor energy efficiency rating. This means that they would qualify for a boiler grant.

High Percentage of Homeowners: A large percentage of pensioners own their own homes. It is estimated that 74% of people aged 65 and over own their homes. Homeownership is one of the qualifying criteria for a boiler grant.
