Funding for heating upgrades

If your home has a low-performing electric heating system - night storage heaters, electric heaters or an electric instantaneous heating system - then you’re probably paying far more for heating bills than you need to.

And if you live in Bristol, North Somerset, Bath & North East Somerset or Somersetsupport is available (subject to eligibility) to help you install more cost-effective gas central heating which will save you money. It doesn’t matter whether you rent or own your property, 

Simply fill out the form below and we can check your eligibility for funding. If connection to mains gas is an option for you, we can help you access the funding from your local council to upgrade with gas central heating.

We may also be able to help you if live in Wiltshire or Swindon: please get in touch here. If you live outside these areas, contact your local authority to see if they can help you (you can find out who your local authority is here).

Funding for this work comes through a successful bid to the Warm Homes Fund by the councils of Bristol, North Somerset and Bath & North East Somerset.

Frequently asked questions

How do I know if I'm getting a good deal from my gas & electricity supplier?

Suppliers often change their tariffs and therefore if you want to be sure that you are getting the best deal it is worth checking comparison websites every six months to a year. Energy suppliers are now also required to provide you with assistance to ensure the tariff you are paying for is most suitable for your needs.

Can I get financial help towards high bills?

If you think your bills are too high, firstly discuss them with your energy supplier as there may be an alternative tariff which would suit you better. If you receive Pension Credit or another income related benfit then you might qualify for the Warm Home Discount which is a rebate from your fuel supplier on your electricity bill. Some fuel suppliers have charitable trust funds that help people who have fuel debt that they cannot pay off.
