Boiler replacement programme
The council has launched a free scheme to replace old inefficient gas boilers and faulty radiators as well as upgrade heating controls. In addition to any boiler replacements, residents may also be eligibile for draught proofing and insulation.
We are not currently accepting applications as we have allocated all of the funding for phase 1 of the programme. We can however put your details on our waiting list for phase 2. This is expected to launch in January - March 2019.
The property must be leasehold or freehold.
A home owner must live in the property and be in receipt of at least one of the below benefits. If the home owner is not in receipt of any of the qualifying benefits, a family member who also lives in the property can qualify if they are on one of the below benefits.
- Attendance Allowance
- Child Tax Credit
- Council Tax Benefit
- Disability Living Allowance
- Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
- Incapacity Benefit
- Income Support
- Jobseeker's Allowance (JSA)
- Pension Credit
- Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
- Universal Credit
- Working Tax Credit
There must be an existing non-condensing gas boiler. You can check the make and model on the Home Heating Guide website to verify this.
The existing boiler will be replaced with a like-for-like Vaillant A rated condensing boiler with upgraded heating controls. In addition to this, we will also insulate and draught proof your home if possible.
We will carry out a Land Registry check to verify the property ownership you will need to provide proof of benefits. All work is subject to a technical survey.
