First Time Central Heating Systems





Warm Homes Programme

Warm Homes is a £2.9 million programme to help more than 700 households in the Leeds City Region and is funded by the National Grid and Affordable Warmth Solution’s Warm Homes Fund.

Part-funded by National Grid, the Leeds City Region Warm Homes programme will install gas-fired central heating systems and gas connections in eligible privately-owned and privately-rented homes in Barnsley, Bradford, Calderdale, Craven, Harrogate, Kirklees, Leeds, Selby, Wakefield and York as well as eligible social housing properties in Leeds.

The scheme is being funded through National Grid’s £150m Warm Homes Fund (£1.6m) alongside local authorities, EON, Northern Gas Networks, Housing Leeds and private landlords.

Applicable residents must not have a central heating system already installed and struggle to heat their home.

If approved, householders will be offered new heating systems on a first-come, first-served basis. Qualifying owner occupiers will receive the system at no cost, while landlords with qualifying tenants will be offered heavily discounted systems.
