GET FUNDING FOR FIRST TIME CENTRAL HEATING (Including free gas connection if required)

First Time Central Heating

The Warm Homes Homes Fund          GDGC Accredited Installer


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.


Households with Central Heating Systems

In 1970 only 30 percent 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.

What is a Central Heating System

Central heating systems are the most common forms of heating a home in the UK. They provide warmth to the interior of a building by circulating hot water to radiators. Radiators are mounted to the wall where the hot water passes in to and releases heat into a room. Electric storage heaters are also used as an alternative central heating system.

Maintain an Ideal Temperature All Year Round

Maintaining your home at a healthy temperature (18 - 21 degrees) will reduce the risk of respiratory problems, strokes, heart attacks, hypothermia and accidents around the home. A central heating system can help ensure a sustained temperature through out a house.
