About Warmer Homes
Warmer Homes is a consortium of nine English councils which have secured £4.85 million from the Warm Homes Fund (WHF) to install first time central heating in around 1500 homes over the next three years.
The Warmer Homes programme covers, but is not limited to, the following Local Authorities and the surrounding areas:
Bournemouth, Christchurch & Poole
West Sussex: Adur & Worthing, Crawley, Mid-Sussex, Horsham
Even if your council area is not listed you may still be eligible for the Warmer Homes programme. Please contact us and we can let you know.
Where is the funding coming from?
The Warm Homes Fund (WHF) is a £150 million national scheme to help people with high heating costs. It has been provided by the National Grid and administered by its not-for-profit partner, Affordable Warmth Solutions.
The aims of the fund are to reduce bills, increase comfort in non-gas households, and improve health outcomes for residents.
What happens next?
The first step towards getting you a new central heating system is a home visit from a LEAP Home Energy Advisor. This will help us determine what we need to do to get you a new system as well as provide you with useful energy saving advice, some energy efficiency improvements and help with income maximisation.
After this we will arrange for a gas connection (if you do not already have one) and after that for the installation of your new central heating system. If you do not already have a gas meter you will need to arrange with a gas supplier to have one fitted before the central heating install can go ahead (more information and advice on how to do this will be provided closer to the time).
Surveys may be required in advance of both the gas connection and installing the central heating system. If technical challenges are encountered during your survey, we may not be able to fund your installation.
