Robert Hurray - Gas Central Heating

Robert Hurray from Catterick received a fully funded gas central heating system from Richmondshire District Council's ECO scheme to replace his old inefficient system.

Having been off work due to a heart attack and losing his wife in an accident, the 55 year-old qualified under the council’s eligibility criteria for the scheme.

Robert explained: “My wife had an accident last year, she fell down the stairs and fractured her skull and since then it has really hit me bad.
“I had a heart attack and I’ve not been fairing too well. I am a plasterer and I’m trying to get back to work but I can’t do anything at the moment."

After seeing an advert on Facebook, Robert thought he could qualify.

“They said I could receive funding. I’ve never claimed anything in my life and I don’t receive any benefits. I just had some money left from my wife, but this is just going down and down.”

Robert’s central heating install was fully funded from the scheme managed by YES Energy Solutions who use their industry accredited contractors to complete the work.

“The installers were great, I’ve worked alongside lads like that for years and they were smashing. I couldn’t fault any part of it.”

Robert’s old boiler and radiators were replaced with an A-rated system and he is already feeling the benefits.

“Before, the boiler just wasn’t efficient enough, only one or two radiators got hot but now when it’s on full it’s like a nuclear bomb going off, it’s really hot!

“It’s the fact that I can switch it on and get heating and hot water at the same time and I’m happy with that.”
