First Time Central Heating

First Time Central Heating Grants cover the cost of supplying and installing a central heating boiler together with radiators, the necessary pipework and heating control systems. If any plaster work is damaged during the installation this will be repaired but the grant does not cover redecoration.


First Time Central Heating

First time central heating grants (FTCH) are available from the government as part of their energy efficiency scheme, Energy Company Obligation (ECO), which is aimed at reducing fuel poverty throughout the UK.


Moving properties from electric or other off gas heating sources will reduce carbon emissions and help towards the government’s commitment to reducing carbon emission in the UK to Net 0% by the year 2050.


If you have no central heating system or a system that doesn’t involve a boiler and radiators then you will be eligible for the grant
