Free First-Time Central Heating
|Published: 11th October 2018 11:01|
Portsmouth City Council's new Warmer Homes scheme is offering free first time central heating to eligible households in Portsmouth, Gosport & Havant.
The scheme intends to deliver 1,500 free central heating installations to households with electric heating or those heated by gas fires/heaters. Electric heating is one of the most expensive forms of heating and could be costing you up to 3 times more, compared to having a gas central heating system.
Check if you're eligible here: www.warmerhomes.org.uk. Typical eligibility criteria include those on low incomes, those in receipt of means-tested benefits, those with long-term health issues or those in vulnerable situations.
Those receiving their first central heating system will also receive a free connection to the gas grid, where this is required. The total value of a gas connection and central heating system typically equates to £6,000.
