If your home has NEVER had a central heating system fitted before and you receive Universal Credit, you may qualify for a Government ECO grant to install gas central heating. This can be either mains gas central heating or LPG central heating.

IMPORTANT: Many householders are now claiming Universal Credit temporarily, due to a loss of income caused by the Coronavirus pandemic. Householders who stop claiming Universal Credit will no longer qualify for Central Heating Grants, so APPLY TODAY whilst you still qualify.
