This First Time Central Heating (FTCH) Checklist (‘the FTCH checklist’) is designed to assess whether the replacement central heating system would qualify under the scheme as first time central heating. This checklist should be completed for all boiler installations undertaken as first time central heating in the ECO scheme, including renewable heating systems or a district heating system where applicable.

This checklist does not provide any detailed information on the requirements of ECO. Further information can be found on our guidance webpage and documents, ECO3 Guidance: Delivery.
