In 1970 only 30% of UK households had a central heating system installed. This has risen to 96% today, however 1000's of homes in Lancashire are in the 4% still without. Through our First Time Central Heating initiative, we’ve obtained funding to help install central heating systems into Lancashire homes which don’t currently have any form of central heating.
CHiL are now assessing applicants’ eligibility in preparation, so if you live in a home without a central heating system, make sure you register your details here.
Please note – This funding is NOT an extension of the Central Heating Fund allocation which has now been fully committed. Also, the new funding will carry some changes in qualifying criteria. Any residents currently on the CHF waiting list will be contacted once the new funding is in place to discuss their individual circumstances.
First Time Central Heating Grants are just one part of our larger scheme to improve efficiency and decrease your carbon footprint. We also provide funding for boiler replacements, cavity wall insulation, oil central heating replacements and storage heater replacements amongst others.
