We are launching the next phase of our warm homes funded first time gas central heating systems for private sector properties.
Do you: Own your property? Use gas fires, storage heaters or coal fires as your main heating? Do you have unheated rooms in your home?
What's the Catch? There's isn't one! A full gas central heating system with an A rated combi boiler will be fitted completely free* of charge to owner occupiers thanks to the Warm Homes Fund, as long as you meet the eligibility criteria. Barnsley Council is working with Better Homes Barnsley to deliver the programme.
I don't have gas to my house, can I apply? We can also connect you to the gas network free* of charge, as long as your house is close to a gas main.
I rent my property, can I apply? If you live in a rented property, please speak to your landlord as they will need to contribute to the cost.
What do I need to do? Contact the Warm Homes team on 01226 773366 to make an application. The Warm homes team will ask you a few questions to check your eligibility. If you are eligible, Better Homes Barnsley will visit your home to design your new central heating system.
You can also apply online by visiting www.betterhomesyorkshire.co.uk.
