Private tenants without gas central heating in Barnsley could look forward to a warmer winter thanks to a grant being offered by Barnsley Council through its energy efficiency scheme, Better Homes Barnsley.
A limited number of grants are available towards the cost of installing brand new gas central heating systems in private rented properties which currently lack and have never had gas central heating.
The discount, which has recently been increased, could provide a grant that means privately rented homes could have a brand new system installed for as little as £1,500 landlord contribution subject to survey.
To be eligible, rented properties cannot already have gas central heating and need to be occupied by tenants who are on a low income. Grants are subject to survey and eligibility criteria and may not cover the cost of installing a new gas supply if needed.
To find out if you’re eligible for a grant, for more information or to apply, visit: www.betterhomesyorkshire.co.uk or call 0800 597 1500.
