CHiL has secured funding from Affordable Warmth Solutions - Warm Homes Fund, to install first time gas central heating systems free of charge to private properties in Lancashire (subject to qualifying criteria). This includes a free gas connection for properties which are not currently connected to the gas network. To qualify you need to be a low income household earning less than £30,000 per year with savings of less than £16,000. If your property already has a boiler and radiators it can not be considered for First Time Central Heating but you could qualify for a boiler replacement.
If you have gas to your property then surveys and installations can be carried out extremely quickly. If you need a gas connection then your application will take a little longer. The scheme is also available to private Landlords if a qualifying tenant is living in the property.
CHiL can replace whatever system you currently have such as gas wall heaters or electric storage heaters with a full gas or LPG central heating system including an 'A' rated energy efficient boiler.
CHiL now has access to this funding and are assessing eligibility for new applications, so if you live in a home without a central heating system (boiler and radiators), make sure you apply today.
