YES Energy Solutions is managing the Hertfordshire Warm Homes Fund central heating scheme, helping 100 householders slash their energy bills across Hertsmere, East Herts and North Hertfordshire.
Scheme in detail
In November 2018 we secured funding through National Grid’s Warm Homes Fund programme to install fully funded gas powered central heating systems in 100 eligible households.
Working in partnership with North Hertfordshire District Council, East Herts Borough Council and Hertsmere District Council, we are helping householders access energy efficient central heating for the first time.
Compared to electricity, mains gas is 3-4 times cheaper to use, therefore this scheme will not only improve thermal comfort of homes but help residents save energy and money.
Eligible residents may be able to receive:
A-rated gas powered condensing combination boiler
Radiators in every living space
Thermostatic radiator values (TRVs)
Wireless digital programmer
This scheme works on a first come first served basis.

Typically, if you have a household income below a certain threshold
and don’t have working central heating, then you are likely to qualify.
Residents on low incomes with specific health conditions or
vulnerabilities can also qualify for support.
residents that rent their properties will be able to take part providing their
landlord provides a small contribution towards the cost of the works.
The scheme is supported by funding secured from National Grid’s Warm Homes Fund programme – an innovative funding stream established to help make households in Great Britain warmer, healthier and cheaper to heat. The fund is administered by Affordable Warmth Solutions.
Each of the councils are contributing match funding to the scheme and we are also bringing in Energy Company Obligation (ECO) funding to support installations.
Any required gas connections will be funded through Cadent as part of the Fuel Poverty Network Extension Scheme.
Solutions are managing the scheme on behalf of the three councils. We will be
registering interest from householders, validating eligibility and managing
installations through our accredited installer network.
