YES Energy Solutions worked in partnership with North Lincolnshire Council & North East Lincolnshire Council to provide funding for first time gas central heating systems through the Warm Homes Fund.
The North and North East Lincolnshire Warm Homes Fund provided eligible residents with a fully funded gas central heating upgrade.
YES Energy Solutions managed the Central Heating Programme and helped 145 householders save money, reduce their energy bills and connect to a more cost effective domestic fuel.
Residents that meet one or more of the scheme’s qualifying criteria could qualify for funding for a new gas central heating system consisting of:
An A-rated condensing combination boiler
Radiators with thermostatic controls
Remote digital programmer
A gas connection (if applicable)
The Warm Homes Fund
The funding for this scheme was secured via the Warm Homes Fund – a funding stream established by National Grid and administered by Affordable Warmth Solutions.
The North and North East Lincolnshire Council bid was one of 43 winning submissions to receive funding out of over 200 applications.
Over £380,000 has been secured to fit 145 first time central heating system in the area.
June Wood's story
Wootton resident, June Wood, who had a fully funded gas
central heating system fitted through the scheme tells us how, after 66 years,
her house now feels like a home:
“It’s like a different
house now and everyone who comes to visit us has noticed.
“We can afford to keep
the heating on all day because it’s much cheaper than using the electric
heaters, so every room in the house is warm and we’ve even felt the difference
in our hot water.
“Even our cats are
happy – they’ll often be curled up cosy near the radiators, and we’ve got more
space in the cupboard now after the water immersion heaters were taken out. I’m
so grateful with all the help that we’ve received.”
