Why Free Gas Central Heating For  Pensioners ?

Free Central Heating For Over 70s

The Uk government recognise that many pensioners are worrying about how they are going to afford to heat their home this winter since the recent gas and electric price rises last month.

There is a new Government-backed scheme to provide a Free Central Heating System to all pensioners that meet the criteria.

It is only targeted at pensioners who have never had gas central heating in their home, and are using electric heaters or solid fuel to heat their home.


Free Central Heating For Pensioners – Is There A Catch?

There is no catch.

This scheme will pay all of the cost for a brand new central heating system installed. This will include a boiler -radiators – all pipework and other costs needed 100% free.

The Grant is non repayable and you will not be asked to repay in the future.

How Does The Central Heating Grant For Pensioners Work?

Grants are now available to assist pensioners and vulnerable householders with their heating bills and the cost of replacing outdated boilers and heating systems.

The new grants are delivered through the “Affordable Warmth” element of the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme.

The Free Central Heating grant can cover the whole cost of any work required and do not need to be repaid.


How Do You Qualify For First Time  Central Heating ?

If your home is heated either with Electric room / Storage heaters, Warm air system, Gas room heaters – or you have no heating system at all, you can obtain funding towards something called First Time Central Heating (FTCH).
