Grants for Park Homes – Heating & Insulation 2022

 

Park homes in the UK can have some of the highest energy bills as they are usually very poorly insulated  and being off the gas grid are always heated by expensive fuels such as bottled gas or electricity.

Indeed many people report energy bills in excess of £300 per month.

Insulation and upgraded heating is a must for these types of homes and this blog is to inform you of what home improvement grants are available to park home occupants.

Warm Front can now offer  grants for residential park home owners to help reduce heating costs which are very helpful to any occupants that are in receipt of a benefit.

 

 

 

Grants For Mobile  Holiday Homes and Rented Park Homes

  Grants are not available for holiday homes or rented park homes.

A stipulation of grant funding is that you must live at the property for at least 50 weeks per year and pay council tax.

LPG Boiler Upgrade

If your park home has a boiler using bulk LPG or bottled gas and it is running inefficiently, has broken down, has a fault or is in any way unsafe, you may be able to get a small grant towards the cost of replacing it.

In the past the grant covered all of the cost but now this scheme has ended but you can still get a decent discount so worth applying.

If you do not currently have heating with a radiator system, we may be able to install a full heating system for you but you will have to contribute  towards the cost.

We can confirm the actual contribution this  a survey has been completed.
