Prior to 2013 central heating grants were available through the Warm Front Scheme. This has been replaced by the Affordable Warmth Scheme which offers central heating grants for everyone.
How do you qualify for a Central Heating Grant?
The Government has created a funding system for central heating grants for people that need it most. The grants focus on individuals or families that are ‘most at risk’ including elderly, low income families and on those on disability pensions. There are other eligibility factors so we have made it easy to check eligibility.
Do I have to pay anything?
No, the Government has placed an obligation on the ‘big six’ energy companies called the ‘Energy Company Obligation’ or ECO for short. The funding will help over 6 million UK homes owners or tenants to upgrade the way they heat their homes. The Central Heating Grants are just one part of a larger programme to improve efficiency and decrease your carbon footprint. As long as you meet the Government criteria any boiler or insulation upgrades will cost you nothing.
What happens next?
As soon we receive your Central Heating Grant application our team will ring you to validate your eligibility and arrange for an assessor to come out to visit you. Our team prides themselves on ensuring the process is hassle free and that you get your new boiler and insulation installed in a timely manner.
