Central Heating Lifetime Savings
First and foremost, our highly qualified surveyors can visit your home for free at a time and date to suit you. During this free survey, our team will be able to recommend energy saving measures and ascertain whether you and your property is eligible for grants funded by the UK government.
Our surveyor will look at your current heating system and carry out a heat loss survey for the property. Not only could you qualify free central heating, but you may be eligible for other grants to create not only a better living environment for you, your tenants or family but to also save money on your current heating bills. All whilst helping the UK government to reduce it’s carbon emissions to help the environment.
Central Heating Installation Grant Funding
Once you get the green light and your central heating grant application is successful, our approved insulation installers can transform the energy efficiency of your home, with the highest standards of workmanship.
You may also be eligible for other grant funding for services such as loft or cavity wall insulation for your property.
All our installations are monitored by Kiwa’s Cavity Wall Installer Scheme, ensuring all materials and installers are suitable for your property.
Are You Satisfied with Your Home Heating?
Are you currently satisfied with how your home is heated? Does your property contain a modern heating system or do you rely upon outdated methods such as night storage tanks? If so, you are likely losing a great deal of money. Night storage systems are notorious for requiring a vast amount of electricity to function. Furthermore, it is often very difficult to achieve the desired temperature. Some rooms will be too hot while others remain noticeably cold. One of the best ways to address these issues is through a First Time Central Heating (FTCH) grant.
The UK’s insulation grants, such as ECO scheme, are government schemes funded by the UK’s largest utility companies, including the so-called ‘Big Six’. These companies are duly obliged to offer grants that can help those in need to enhance the energy efficiency of their homes for good, without costing you a penny.
The grants available with the ECO scheme and LA Flex funding tend to cover many different types of insulation, depending on your property age and type. This includes cavity wall and loft insulation, as well as first time central heating and boiler replacements.
What is a First Time Central Heating Grant?
A First Time Central Heating Grant is a programme developed by the government and designed to help households that might not be able to afford a timely heating upgrade. This is actually part of a larger stimulus package that takes into account the status of the insulation throughout your home (sometimes known as the First Time Central Heating ECO3 programme).
The main intention is to provide property owners with a more comfortable living environment while limiting the carbon footprint of their homes. In other words, you will save money on heating costs while helping the environment. The only question left involves if you might be able to qualify. This is when the central heating surveys provided by Lifetime Savings will come in quite handy.
How Can I Qualify for A Heating Grant?
There are several variables which will be examined during a central heating survey. The first involves the current state of your heating system and if it is functioning properly. Our team will then look at your financial status. This applies to landlords, homeowners and private renters. Those who are already receiving qualifying benefits may be eligible. Here are some other programmes which could qualify you for a first time central heating grant:
- Child benefits
- Child tax credits
- Armed Forced Independence Payments
- Disability living allowance
- Income support
- Income-based job-seeker’s allowance
Of course, these are only a handful of examples. It is always wise to speak with one of the team members at Lifetime Savings. We will help you to connect the dots in no time at all.
Where do you begin?
It is always best to take care of the basics before seeing if you qualify for such a grant. First, take some time to book a central heating survey with the professionals at Lifetime Savings. We will get to the root of the problem. This can also help us to better understand if you are eligible for the First Time Central Heating ECO3 programme.
Not only could this opportunity save you a massive amount of money on energy costs, but your home will remain comfortable throughout the year. So, do not hesitate to contact us directly in order to learn more about your options.
