Improve your home
The retrofit centre
The retrofit centre is a collaboration between experts and local councils which aims to support people to make informed choices when making changes to their home. Home owners can benefit from energy savings and take more control of the climate inside their homes, all while making a positive contribution to the climate of the planet.
Government grants are also available to help you replace a gas boiler with a renewable heating system.
Homeowners across England and Wales can benefit from grants to fit clean heating systems when they come to replace their oil and gas boilers. This includes clean heating systems installed from 1 April 2022 through to 2025.
Heat pumps are now much cheaper and more competitively priced against gas and oil boilers, and closer to the cost of installing a traditional gas boiler. The scheme will improve the energy efficiency of homes, reduce energy bills and cut emissions in the long-term.
Eligible property owners will offered grants of:
- £5,000 off the cost and installation of an air source heat pump
- £5,000 off the cost and installation of a biomass boiler
- £6,000 off the cost and installation of a ground source heat pump
