Central Heating Grants
If there is no central heating in your home, central heating grants are available to cover all or part of the cost of having a new system installed.
Someone in the household will need to be receiving one of seven income-related benefits. The property should also be owned or rented privately.

What type of heating system qualifies?
Portable electric heaters, electric fires, gas fires, open fires, ducted warm air systems and electric storage heaters can all be replaced with a full central heating system.
All of these heating methods are inefficient and expensive so central heating grants are available to replace them with a more efficient heating system.
Who qualifies for a central heating grant?
You must own your own home or be renting from a private landlord. Either yourself or another occupant must be in receipt of a qualifying benefit as detailed below.
A contribution towards the cost of the new central heating system may be required, depending on the amount of work needed and how efficient the property is. This can be paid for through savings on heating bills via the Green Deal.
- Pension Guarantee Credit
- Income Support
- Income Based JSA
- Income-Related ESA
- Child Tax Credit
- Working Tax Credit
- Universal Credit
In order to qualify, one member of the household must be claiming an income-related benefit.
Where Working Tax, Child Tax and Universal Credit are concerned, there is an upper income limit for the entire household.
Please visit our Who Qualifies section for further information.
What if you don't qualify?
If you are not entitled to a central heating grant, the other option is Green Deal Finance. This is effectively a loan but it is paid back using the money you will save by having central heating installed. There is nothing to pay until after the system is installed and the amounts are deduced from your bills.

The process was really smooth from start to finish with excellent customer service throughout. The new boiler has made a real difference.
EnergyLink were helpful and informative, my boiler was installed within the month and now my wife and I are warm and comfortable.
I had my new boiler installed last month and my house is so much warmer now. Thanks very much!
My gas bills were huge before my new boiler was installed and I’m looking forward to seeing the difference this winter. I’d recommend the service to anyone.
My new boiler works perfectly. I explained the issues I was having with my old boiler and EnergyLink helped me straight away. I am a mother with three young kids so having a warm home is very important.
It was so easy to apply and the staff were really pleasant. Thank you EnergyLink.
