Created by the Ministry of Social Development, this system allows UK owners to change their old boiling system for a new one, thanks to allowance earnings. The Boiler Replacement Allowance (BRA) already granted households with more than 18,500 new boiler systems.
In this section you find the different criteria you need to match in order to apply for BRA, the earnings you can receive according to the type of boilers, and your annual income and the process to apply to the BRA.
To be eligible for the BRA, you need to match all of the following criteria. If one is missing, you won’t be able to get the allowance. So be careful when replacing your old boiler system.

According to your annual income and the type of boiler you want to install, your allowance earnings will be different. Find below a table summarizing it:
Boilers usually last up to 15 years, so the first reason why you should consider a replacement is if your boiler is close to that age. A regularly serviced boiler has a longer lifespan, but age does have an impact on efficiency and risk of malfunction regardless of that.
When servicing your boiler regularly becomes economically inconvenient, you should definitely consider replacement. However, you should keep in mind that annual services are fundamental, even for brand new boilers, in order to make sure that they’re completely safe.
These checks usually cost between £50 and £150. You can also invest in boiler insurance, which costs around £100 a year and can be helpful if you don’t have enough savings to pay for sudden reparations.
It might be possible that home insurance policy already has boiler cover in place, so make sure to check that first.
