Highland Council urges residents to apply for First Time Central Heating fund
The Highland Council has encouraged eligible residents to apply to benefit from up to 100% Scottish Government grant funding for First Time Central Heating.
This would be delivered through the installation of an air source heat pump, new radiators and new controls.
An air source heat pump uses electricity to extract heat from the outside air and can be used to heat both the home and the hot water tank.
This will generate warmth in one central place, distributing the heat through pipes to radiators throughout the home and will provide the residents with full control of their heating system.
To be eligible for funding, the property must be:
- Owner occupied or privately rented and must be your main residence
- Council Tax band A-C, D where the EPC rating is E, F or G
- Electrically heated
