Energy savings for homeowners

6. Warm Home Fund

In partnership with SSE Energy Solutions Ltd, we have introduced two funding support packages* to help improve heating systems. 

Support packages are limited, so register your interest now.

1 Gas central heating grants

100 gas central heating grants are available to private homeowners and tenants to install gas central heating and connect properties to the gas network. Householders with electric storage heaters, plug-in electrical heaters, or with no existing heating system are likely to benefit most, but grants may be available to householders who wish to upgrade their existing boiler.

2 Air source heat pump grants

The Warm Homes Fund is also offering grants to install air source heat pumps that provide heating and hot water. Householders with electric storage heaters, electric room heating, solid fuel back boilers and room heaters, or those with no existing heating will be eligible.


To qualify, householders must

  • be in receipt of certain benefits, or
  • have a household income less than £30,000, or £25,000 for a sole occupant, after tax and national insurance and
  • have an energy performance certificate (EPC) with a rating of D,E,F, or G
