John Botham – Gas Central Heating

Retiree John Botham from Malton received a gas central heating system for free as part of the North Yorkshire Warm Homes Fund scheme.

The 66-year-old’s heating prior to the install was inefficient and costly, with him relying on just one electric storage heater.

John explained: “Before this system was installed all I had was an electric heater in my living room and that was it.

“It was obviously cold in here, and I’m retired so being at home I had to put the heater on full all day and the house only got warm by the time it was ready to go to bed at night.

John, who rents privately, heard about the scheme after receiving a letter from Ryedale District Council and got in touch with YES Energy Solutions who manage the scheme.

John said: “I replied to the letter but I didn’t know what to expect, I was so happy the job was fully funded.

“Now with the central heating it’s great and warms up nicely. It should really save me money and be good for me.

YES Energy Solutions use their network of accredited installers to complete installs in the North Yorkshire Warm Homes Fund scheme.

“The engineers were good, and I used to be a plumbers mate so I know what I’m talking about.”

Ryedale District Council are partners in the North Yorkshire Warm Homes Fund scheme which is managed by YES Energy Solutions.
