Who benefits from the new €1,000 bonus for installing a boiler?

A €1,000 increase in subsidies for households replacing a fossil-fuel boiler with renewable energy appliances: this was one of the government’s measures as part of the March 16 energy price hike.

This bonus applies to files submitted from Friday, April 15 through the end of 2022, according to a decree published on April 7. In practice, these 1,000 euros reinforce the MaPrimeRénov’ subsidy that already exists for this type of work – MaPrimeRénov’ is the main state subsidy to finance energy saving measures in households.

To apply for this aid, you can visit France-renov.gouv.fr or Maprimerenov.gouv.fr. Both owner-occupiers and landlords are affected.

Eligible Equipment

Among the devices that allow to benefit from this bonus of 1,000 euros are boilers with automatic loading and manual loading, fueled with wood or other biomass (e.g. straw, sawdust, bark). But also systems for generating heating and hot water that are operated with thermal solar energy. As well as geothermal heat pumps, which recover heat from the ground or groundwater, and solar thermal pumps, which are equipped with solar panels to capture heat from their surroundings.

Also affected are air-to-water heat pumps, which recover calories from the air to heat water for radiators.

While this €1,000 bonus is aimed at most households, it is not intended for the wealthiest.

Excluded “pink” households

Remember that the amounts of aid provided by MaPrimeRénov vary according to four income categories, from very modest to an income of no more than 15,262 euros per year for a single person in the region and 21,123 euros in Ile-de-France -France, in the highest category for households with an income above 35,894 euros in the regions and 38,184 euros in Ile-de-France.

The additional allowance of EUR 1,000 is intended for the first three income brackets, which are represented by three colors in the MaPrimeRénov system: yellow, blue and purple. The bonus thus stops for households with intermediate incomes – up to 29,148 euros for a single person in the region and 38,184 euros in the Ile-de-France (for a single person).
