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.

This is part of their strategy to address fuel poverty by proving free grants to upgrade heating & insulation.

 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 Help For Over 60s  – Is There A Catch?

 

There is a new Government-backed scheme to provide a Free Central Heating System to all pensioners that meet the criteria. this is part of their strategy to address fuel poverty by proving free grants to upgrade heating & insulation.

There is no catch.

This scheme will pay all of the cost for a brand new central heating system to be installed for most properties except for small flats where a contribution will be applicable as the grant awarded is usually smaller.  The grant is worth around £4000.

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

There are currently Free Central heating Grants available for pensioners until March 2022.

If eligible, you can have a brand new central heating system fitted to include radiators and all controls fitted 100% FREE.

The Free Central Heating Scheme is only available to households that have never had central heating fitted in the past.

 

 

Why A Free Central Heating Scheme?

 

This scheme has been brought especially to allevite fuel poverty in the Uk and to move people from other expensive forms of heating such as electric heaters, electric storage heaters which are massively expensive to run.

Free Central Heating Grants have been especially to help pensioners who are likely to struggle to heat their home and who may be operating old expensive electric heating systems that they cannot afford to replace.

This fantastic Fuel Poverty scheme has proved to be a godsend for many aging households and over 10 thousand Free First Time Central Heating Grants have now been claimed since April 2018

Can I Apply For Central Heating If I Have A Boiler Fitted?

No, you have to apply for the boiler replacement / boiler scrappage scheme as this grant is specifically for people without a central heating system in place.

The Free boiler scheme is no longer free for most applicants ( unless you can have your floor insulated) so you will need to pay a contribution between £499- £999 for a straight swap.
