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
knocks up to 66 percent off the cost of the average central heating system,
meaning privately rented homes could have a brand new system installed for
as little as £1,500 landlord contribution.

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.
