What is the Affordable Warmth Programme?
Similar to the Warm Front Scheme, Affordable Warmth offers three main measures to help you keep your home warmer. Apart from having a healthier home to live in the savings from upgrades to your insulation can reduce your energy bill by 25% – 30%. An inefficient boiler will cost you hundreds of pounds every year so it is well worth checking that this is rated ‘C’ or above. The Affordable Warmth grants cover Loft insulation, Cavity Wall insulation and new Boiler replacement. So it is goodbye to the Warm Front Scheme and hello to Affordable Warmth.
