What is A First Time Heating Grant?


First Time Central Heating grants are part of the government’s ECO scheme. Under this scheme qualifying homeowners could get grant to cover the cost of installing first-time central heating in their homes where there is no central heating system. 

How much could I be entitled to?

The funding provided is a grant, not a loan, therefore it doesn’t need to be repaid and could cover a large part – if not all – of the cost of installing central heating in your home. The average cost of having a central heating system installed privately is approximately £3,500, however, qualifying homeowners taking advantage of a heating grant can save them a considerable amount of money. If you receive one of the qualifying benefits, you could be eligible for free or a heavily subsidised first-time central heating in your home. (see the qualifying benefit list)

Who qualifies for a First Time Heating Grant?

One of the qualifying criteria for First Time Central Heating Grants is that your home must have adequate loft insulation installed and if it has cavity walls, it must have cavity wall insulation installed.


If your home doesn’t have either of these installed at the time of your application, we can arrange to do the insulation at the same time.

How does it work?

Once we have confirmed that you are eligible to receive the grant, we will arrange a free no obligation survey of your home and its existing heating system. After this survey we will be able to see the suitability and feasibility of the installation. We will also be able to assess if you need to contribute towards the cost or it can be done free of cost.
Once your new central heating system has been fitted, you can sit back and enjoy your new warm home with the benefit of lower energy bills as a result of your A-rated efficiency boiler. All of our boilers come with a 2-year manufacturer’s warranty for extra peace of mind.

We will then arrange a survey of your home and its existing heating system and the surveyor will complete the official grant application form on your behalf.

You will then receive your funding
