Liverpool City Council has been awarded a grant of £1.27 million from the Warm Homes Fund for the installation of first time gas central heating systems. The offer is being match funded by Warmer Energy Services, who will be responsible for the installation of the systems.
Installation of a gas central heating system can help reduce illnesses related to living in a cold home such as Pneumonia, Asthma and Bronchitis and allows you to control your heating around your home more effectively.
Loft insulation could save you up to £225 a year and cavity wall insulation up to £225 a year2. These improvements will also keep you warm and comfortable over the winter months.
It’s easy to see if you qualify.
