Free central heating for homes without heating

A new scheme in Lincolnshire is giving eligible tenants and home-owners the opportunity to have a central heating system installed for free if their property has never had it fitted. But applications need to be received before the end of August 2016.

Anyone living with expensive and inefficient heating methods like solid fuel open fires or portable room heaters, could have a new heating system installed, if they meet the eligibility criteria.

Government funding is available to install central heating where none exists if you own your own home or rent from a private landlord (and have the owner's permission to do the work) and you receive certain income related benefits. Funding is for a limited time and subject to availability, entitlement checks and a technical home survey. You must get at least one of a range of qualifying benefits (such as state Pension Credit and Child Tax Credit (where your income is £16,010 or less))

To find out if you could be eligible please contact the Lincolnshire Home Independence Agency on 01522 516300 or email info@lincshia.org to make an application.
