Free gas central heating with Hertfordshire Warm Homes Fund

Funding is available for fully funded A-rated gas-powered central heating systems for residents that currently use inefficient storage heaters, room heaters or coal and wood fires.

We have secured funding through National Grid’s Warm Homes Fund to deliver first-time central heating to homes in the district.

The funding will help eligible residents connect their homes to a more cost effective fuel and reap the benefits of a gas central heating system.

The project is being managed by award winning Community Interest Company, YES Energy Solutions, who will deliver the installations through their accredited installer network.

Eligible residents could receive:

  • A-rated gas condensing combination boiler
  • Radiators in every living space
  • Thermostatic radiator values (TRVs)
  • Wireless digital programmer

There is also funding available for gas connections via Cadent, providing residents meet the eligibility criteria and live close to other properties on the mains gas network.

The scheme works on a first come first served basis and funding is only available for a limited period of time.
