The Borough Council is working with E.ON to offer eligible residents up to 100% funding for either a first-time gas central heating system with free gas connection, or an air source heating system.

To benefit from the full funding available residents must not currently have a central heating system and currently rely on inefficient heating systems such as electric storage heaters or solid fuel heating to heat their homes. You do not need to be an E.ON customer to apply. 

To take advantage from the full funding available for an air source heat pump central heating system, residents must currently heat their homes using electric storage heaters and meet the eligibility criteria. You do not need to be an E.ON customer to apply.            

An air source heat pump system uses electricity to extract heat from the outside air, in the same way a refrigerator extracts heat to keep the inside cool and can be used to heat both the home and the hot water tank. 

Eligible residents could also benefit from free cavity wall and loft insulation as part of the offer.

This offer is operating on a first-come, first-served basis. For eligibility criteria and further information please call E.ON’s call centre on 0330 400 1095. 

The Borough Council’s Executive Member for Housing, Councillor Michael Mullaney said:

We are really pleased to be supporting our residents across the area with this great initiative.

Through working with E.ON we hope to be able to improve the energy efficiency in hundreds of homes and ensure residents not only save money on their energy costs but can also become more energy efficient at the same time.

We would urge eligible residents to contact E.ON to find out more and together we can help as many people as possible stay warm and healthy in their homes and help to save money at this difficult time.

Nigel Dewbery, Residential Solutions Director at E.ON, said: “We’re really pleased to be working with Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council to give eligible residents the opportunity to install either a free first time gas central heating system, air source heat pump central heating systems and a range of energy efficiency measures on their properties."
