This company was extremely easy to deal with. The staff I had dealings with were very helpful, especially Carlo. When there was a slight hiccup with the first installation company assigned to us, Carlo got on the case immediately and reassigned another company. The company they used were extremely professional. Overall I am very pleased with the whole process.

Another heating company in let me down and said they could not proceed with my heating conversion at the kast minute due to the fact i had a coal fired back boiler. I spoke to a few firms nobody would do it.i phoned Warm Front and spoke to Carlo, we can do that mate! 1 month later i have a new combi boiler , hot water on demand and a warm house for the first time in 13 years. I am over the moon and can't thank Carlo and his lads enough. They are true professionals who know exactly what theyre doing , very tidy and will be done before you know it. Incredible service and lovely people .Thank you so much Carlo and team. I will never forget what you have done .

Great service from Carlo who was there from start to finish helping my mother save at least £4000 on a full central heating system Carlo helped us get a very good company that was brilliant and installed the system within the week of coming to survey the job and only taking one day to install Would definitely recommend this service as when I was phoning up companies myself they either wasn’t turning up or telling us we wasn’t eligible or turning up and then hearing nothing from them again Once again 5 stars for this company

Central Heating FAQS

Government Grants For Central Heating – Is This A Scam?

No It Is Not A Scam !  

If you believe it is a scam I will come over to your house and eat your lunch for you !   SCAM INDEED !

Why A Government Grant For A New Central Heating System?

Free Government Grants For Central Heating are part of the Energy Company Obligation to fund new heating systems for low income homes that are  deemed to be in fuel poverty.

These people would not be able to afford the £5000 or so for a full central heating system and would be paying higher energy bills than they can afford.  Central heating is the most cheapest way to heat a home and this grant would help many people in the UK.

What Current Heating Types Are Accepted For The Grant

 Your home must be fitted with one of the following heating systems:

Electric room or storage heaters –   Gas / Oil / Solid  fuel  room heaters –  Gas fire only

Mains gas warm air system – Coal fire with back boiler

Electric underfloor / ceiling heating –  Bottled LPG  heating –  No Heating At All

Is The Grant Repayable In The Future?

Full central heating grants are non-repayable and they will not have to be paid back in the future.

This applies even if you move home.

Are There Central Heating Grants For Over 60s And Other Ages?

Yes. Free Central Heating is not limited to over 70s.

Any one can apply if you feel you meet the criteria

Are There Grants For Central Heating Boilers?

Yes  We are taking applications for backboilers and non condensing boilers over 17 years old which are exchanged for free under Eco 4.

Can I Get A Grant For Free Central Heating Replacement?

If your home has had central heating fitted in the past  but it has been removed, you will not qualify.

We are getting a lot of applicants for free central heating grants where the home has already got central heating fitted !

This scheme is for FIRST TIME CENTRAL HEATING only but people do not read the full criteria for the Central Heating Grant and still apply.

This results in many applications being forwarded straight to the dustbin unfortunately.

Please , if you have a boiler and radiators currently fitted in your home – YOU ARE NOT ELIGIBLE!

Homes with a boiler already fitted should apply for the BOILER GRANT SCHEME

Who Is Funding The Free Central Heating Grant?

 This government scheme is funded by the ‘Big Six’ Utility companies.

The central heating grants scheme is part of the Affordable Warmth Scheme section of the Government’s ECO Scheme.

This is funded by a small levy on the electricity bills of every household in England, Scotland and Wales.

Learn more about the Affordable Warmth Scheme HERE.


Is The Grant For A Full Central Heating System?

Yes   The grant covers 100% of the cost of  A brand new full Central Heating system. This includes fitting too!

Can You Get A Grant For Electric Central Heating?

Electric central heating is a very expensive way to heat your home and the grants are currently only available for gas central heating

We do not recommend fitting your home with an electricity-powered boiler, or fitting smart electric radiators as your power bills will be astronomical.

You can expect to easily increase your bills by over 40% by using electric as your main heating.

Does My Home Need To Be Insulated To Get Free Central Heating ?

Yes Sir .  Your home needs to be fully insulated  as a pre requisite to having central heating installed on the government grant scheme.

This is to save energy and make the new central heating system more effective in heating your home.

Our approved installers will check your existing insulation levels and install any insulation that is needed.

This will be free too as part of the grant.  You could  get over £5000 worth of value with this grant.

I Have No Benefits – Can I Apply For Free Central Heating

People not receiving benefits  may qualify for central heating grants under ECO Flex rules.

This scheme allows Local Authorities to recommend that householders on a low income to qualify for  as long as they meet certain criteria.

Each local authority can set its own rules but generally it would apply to households who spend a high proportion of their income to heat their homes.

Please note – not every council has scheme in operation. You will also need to arrange to have a gas meter installed in your home.

Is There First Time Central Heating In Wales?

Yes. Wales & Scotland  both have a free first time central heating scheme available.

You can apply on this page too as all our approved installers cover this area.

How Messy Is Installing Central Heating?

 It is likely to cause a bit of disruption to your home and life  for a few days.

You may find that some carpets will need to be lifted and surfaces might get a bit messy.

How Much Is a New Central Heating System ?

The cost of a new central heating system often falls between £3,500 and £5,000 depending on the size of your property.

A large, four bedroom house will require more radiators and pipework for example than a small two bed flat – but generally, we estimate that the full central heating installation costs will come to around £3,000 to £5,500 for an average three bedroom home.

This will depend on how much work is involved and whether it is a new install or if old heating has to be removed etc.

This price will get you a full central heating system that includes a boiler, radiators, heating controls and pipework.

You can check prices for Central Heating  at MR CENTRAL HEATING

Are There Any Grants Available For Air Source Heat Pump Central Heating?

Yes . Some homes that are off the gas grid will be eligible for a free heat pump central heating. The homes will need to be solid wall to achieve maximum grants available and you may even get free external wall insulation too.

Air Source Central Heating runs on electricity and the system installed would be radiators, an ASHP Unit and a cylinder,

The air source heat pump absorbs heat from the outside air and converts this into a liquid refrigerant at a low temperature.

The pump compresses the liquid to increase its temperature and  then condenses back into a liquid to release its stored heat.

The heat is sent to your radiators or underfloor heating.

Can You Get A Central Heating Grant On PIP?

Personal Independence Payment is not counted as a qualifying benefit for any Eco 4 Grants on this website.

All Disability benefits have now been disqualified from the Sheme.

What Does First Time Central Heating Mean?

First Time Central Heating Grants  means there is a grant available to homes that are having it fitted for the very first time.

First Time Central Heating Grants cover the cost of:

  • Supplying and installing a central heating boiler
  •  All radiators
  • All necessary pipework
  • All heating control systems.
  • 5 year Warranty

When Is The Free Central Heating Scheme Ending?

The funding has been granted until 2026 but we feel the grant will run out before then.

Over 100 thousand heating systems have been fitted now and we anticipate that there will be a new focus towards renewable energy.

If you want to apply for central heating you should do it sooner than later.


My Epc Is High - Can I Apply?

What Is Central Heating?

Central Heating is how over 75% of the Uk heat their homes.

A central heating system consists of a boiler which has pipework and radiators connected to it and it provides the heat for the whole house.

The boiler heats up water via a heat exchanger and then the pump moves this heated water from the boiler through the pipework to the radiators, and back to the boiler for reheating.

It also provides hot water to the hot taps in your home.

What Fuel Does A Boiler Use?

Boilers are usually fuelled by

  • Natural gas
  • Oil / LPG
  • Electric


What Types Of Boiler Are In A Central Heating System

There are generally two types of boiler:

A conventional boiler – This system consists of a pump, a programmer and a room thermostat.

 The heating and hot water are controlled separately by using the programmer.

It heats hot water and stores it in a cylinder, usually found in your airing cupboard.

A combination (combi) boiler    –                                    this system has a programmer and a thermostat. Combi boilers heat hot water on demand so no need to store hot water wastefully.

Room thermostat

Room thermostats are usually found in the hall, lounge or dining room and they set the temperature of your home.

They work by sensing the temperature around it and when the air around the thermostat reaches the set temperature, it  signals the boiler to turn off.

When the temperature drops, the thermostat sends another signal to the boiler to start up again.

Temperature Setting

For best use of expensive heat , many people set their thermostat between 18oC and 21oC . These temperatures are usually comfortable enough for most people.

Thermostatic radiator valves

These valves are fitted to individual radiators to control the temperature of the room they are in.

They shut off the flow of the water to the radiator when the desired temperature is reached.

Valves are often fitted to radiators in every room, apart from the bathroom and hall or the room where the room thermostat is fitted.


The programmer is a control panel on the wall which allows you to set the time you want your heating and hot water to come on and go off.

Rocket science is easier than programming these things unfortunately! You can set it to turn the heating on once or twice a day, on continuously or completely off.

Boiler thermostat

This controls the temperature of the water going around the radiators.

We recommend you set both the heating and hot water around 50 degrees.

 Combination boilers have two: one for heating and one for hot water.

Cylinder thermostat

If you have a hot water cylinder, it will be fitted with a cylinder thermostat to control the temperature of the hot water. This should be set to a temperature of around 60°C (140°F).
