About the scheme

The £150m warm homes fund has been established by National Grid to support local councils to address some of the issues affecting fuel poor households. Other funding for the initiative has been provided from public sector partners.

To deliver this initiative, we are working in partnership with E.ON. If you have any questions about the scheme, you can visit our frequently asked questions page.

Benefits to you:

  • Successful residents will have a brand new fully funded central heating system installed in their home and a free gas connection if you meet the eligibility criteria
  • Additional improvements could be made to your home, such as having cavity wall and loft insulation fitted, which could save you up to £255 a year
  • You could save between £920 and £1000 on your annual fuel bills when installing renewable technology such as air source heat pumps in your property, if you currently have old electric storage heaters

Please visit air source heat pumps (energysavingtrust.org.uk) to see the annual fuel savings based on average sized four bedroom detached homes located in England, Scotland and Wales.
