Free first time central heating

Publish date:Thursday, January 3, 2019

Solihull Council, working with Dodd Group and Act on Energy, is offering eligible residents free gas central heating installation through the Warm Homes Fund.

Up to 125 owner-occupied households will qualify for gas central heating installation - if gas isn’t currently their main heating source or they do not have central heating.

Where electricity is used for heating it will be replaced with gas condensing boilers, improving energy efficiency and reducing running costs.

Solihull Council’s cabinet member for Adult Social Care and Health, Cllr Karen Grinsell, said:

“The Warm Homes Fund is a national fund to help people on lower incomes who are struggling to heat their homes effectively.  The average household saves £350 a year on heating bills when they replace electric storage radiators with gas central heating so I would really urge people in the borough currently using electric radiators or wall heaters to find out if they are eligible - it doesn’t cost anything to find out.”

The project supports households from fuel poor areas and those on lower incomes who may live in homes that aren’t energy efficient and may be difficult and costly to heat. The aim is to help improve the health of local people which could be made worse by living in a cold home. Households may be eligible if they:

  • own their home and have lived there for three years or more
  • have old electric storage heating or gas heaters
  • are in receipt of any income related benefit or have a household income below £32,062
