If I qualify, what happens next?
When our call centre receives your application they will ring you for a chat and to collect the heating grant information required to help you get the new heating measures into your home. The next step will be an assessor coming out to help with the paperwork and check home eligibility for the insulation and boiler grant. After this is completed and you agree to the installation, then the new insulation and boiler can be installed. The end result is a reduction in your energy bills but more importantly a home that is cosy and warm all winter long.
Who Needs Heating Grants?
Again, it’s one of those bleak, cold days of winter, when even just looking at the dark grey clouds that threaten more rain makes your heart sink. Another day of damp windows, draughty rooms and tossing up whether it’s better to turn up the heat a bit and pay the higher power bill or to just put up with the cold and save your pennies. It’s worth staying at work a bit longer if you can, just because the office is warmer. However, you still have to go home sometimes, and if you live in a cold, damp home, winter is just plain miserable.
You’ve considered all the options. You’ve done what you can to stop the draughts and you keep the curtains pulled to keep the heat in (unless the sunshine’s manage to put in an appearance). But still you’re mopping the condensation off the windows and swallowing hot lemon and ginger drinks by the pint to keep the colds at bay. Maybe a new electric heater might be the answer, but that’s going to send the power bill through the roof. You’ve wondered about getting a new boiler put in and whether a more efficient boiler would cut down your power bills. You’ve thought about the insulation where you live and wonder just how much heat escapes through the roof. But you may have pushed these thoughts aside as being far too expensive.
However, thanks to the Affordable Warmth scheme, you may very well be eligible for heating grants that will enable you to get a warm, healthy home, even in the depths of winter. This scheme was set up with the targets of improving the UK’s energy efficiency, reducing our carbon footprint and minimising the drain on the health system caused by people suffering from illnesses brought on by living in cold, damp homes (e.g. flu and pneumonia).
These heating grants are for home owners and for those living in privately owned rental properties. In some cases, these grants will help towards for the cost of installing a new boiler or getting insulation put in. In particular, the Affordable Warmth heating grants target people on the following benefits:
- Child Tax Credit (with household income below £15,860)
- Working Tax Credit (with household income below £15,860)
- State Pension Credit
- Income Support
