Storage Heater Grants for Families FAQs

What happens next?


Once you have completed our online form, one our friendly team will telephone you to confirm the information you have provided. We will explain how the storage heater grant scheme works and answer any questions you may have about it.


We will then arrange to survey your existing heating system and prepare an EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) for your home. All of this is done free of charge. You will need to have your current state benefit award letters available for the surveyor to see. And if you are a private tenant we will need your landlord’s details so that we can obtain their permission to install new storage heaters in your home.


Once we have completed the paperwork for your application we’ll send it to the ECO Funding organisation which will check that you qualify. When your Storage Heater Grant has been approved we will contact you to arrange the installation by qualified electricians. Then you can relax in a warm home knowing that your new storage heaters have a five year warranty and your heating bills will be lower in future.


Will my storage heater grant cover the full cost of installation?


The amount of storage heater grants for families is based on how much you will save in energy bills by upgrading your heating system. The more money we calculate that you will save on your heating bills, the higher your storage heater grant will be.


For some families, the storage heater grant will cover the full cost of installing new storage heaters but for others there may be a contribution required. This cannot be calculated until after a FREE EPC has been prepared for your home but if, once you know the amount of any contribution you decide not to proceed, there will be no charge.


Modern storage heaters are up to 30% more energy efficient than older ones, so even if you do have to contribute to the cost, you will continue to make savings on your heating bills.
