PLEASE CLICK BELOW BUTTON TO START THE PROCESS

Your Application Checked

Your completed form will come to me personally ( Carlo Lega)  and I will check personally all the info you have submitted to me.

If I feel you MAY be eligible, I will forward the whole application to one of out tried and trusted Government Approved Installers who will take up the reins and contact you for surveys etc.

What Is Checked By Warm Front / C Lega

  • I will check your property HOME EPC for your current rating as we can only accept applications with a EPC rating of E – F – G or homes with no EPC currently lodged
  • I will check the Gas Safe Register  to see if a Gas Safe Certificate has been issued which will have the install date of the boiler on it.
  • I will check if you are in receipt of benefits.

Common Rejections

  • Current EPC is C or D 
  • Boiler is fitted AFTER 2005
  • No Benefits Claimed

All applications above are binned and if an email address has been supplied , I will send out a NOTICE OF REJECTION with the reason why you are not eligible.

Once again we confirm that your data will not be passed on to anyone and I bin applications personally.

Next Stage - Forward To Installer

If I feel your application has potential, I will forward onto one of our installers.

They will perform their own checks as to eligibility.

They will only proceed to the next stage ( SURVEY ) if you pass the next round of checks.

Installer Checks

  • DATA MATCH – The installer will send your date of birth for a Data Match check to the DWP  which will confirm whether you are on the correct benefits to qualify for the grant.

If you are eligible , a data match number will be provided to the installer for a fee of approx £4

  • LAND REGISTRY CHECK – Again for a fee a search on the Land Registry Register is performed to ascertain ownership of the property.

The applicant must own the property or actually live with the home owner to qualify.

  • BOILER CHECK –  The installer will phone the applicant  and request a picture of the boiler to prove that it is a non condensing boiler and actually qualifies.
  • survey booked – If all installer checks are satisfactory , you will move to the Survey stage and you will be given a survey date by the installer.

Installer Survey

The installer will appoint a Domestic Energy Assessor to survey your property. The survey will consist of 

  •  The whole house is measured and each individual room.
  • A floor plan will be prepared.
  • Photos taken of each room
  • Photos taken of existing heating &  insulation levels.

Energy Performance Rating Prepared.

The survey will be used to prepare an energy performance rating of the property.

The property will have to achieve a prescribed rating in order for the funding to be  released for the install.

There are instances where the correct score is not achieved and so the install of any measures could not go head.

This does happen in about 10% of all applications that do get to survey stage.

The government do not make these schemes easy unfortunately.

Successful Energy Performance Rating Achieved - Install Booked.

If all goes well your install will be booked. This is usually  within 14 days of survey

Ventilation & Insulation Booked For Install.

It is mandatory for all grant applications to ensure the home is adequately insulated to keep in precious heat and that the home is properly ventilated allow it to breathe and  to control mould issues.

YOU WILL NOT GET THE HEATING GRANT WITHOUT INSULATION & VENTILATION

Insulation of walls & loft are usually carried out first, followed by ventilation measures.

These measures are done first to ensure that they get done as people have in the past had the heating upgrade carried out but then refused to have the required insulation & vents.

Doing them first has put paid to this now.

What Insulation Is Fitted?

Your loft will be insulated to leave a finished insulation height of 270 – 300mm.

This is the government recommended thickness and will reduce heat loss through the roof by  25%.

Your walls ( if cavity ) will be drilled and bead or rockwool will be blown into them. This will save you up to a third of your walls heat loss.

What Ventilation Is Fitted?

To ensure the house can breathe the following measures will be fitted to each grant application.

  • Trickle Vents to your windows
  • Extractor fans to your bathroom and kitchen
  • 10 mm Under door cuts to your doors 

Heating Upgrade Booked In

Your heating upgrade ( new boiler – central heating – heat pump ) will be booked in shortly after.

A new boiler usually takes a day to fit

New Heating - How Long Does It Take To Fit?

  • New boiler – 1 day
  • Back Boiler –  2 days
  • Central Heating – 3 Days
  • Heat Pump  – 3 -4 Days
