Who can apply

All homeowners, including landlords, whose homes were built and occupied before 2006 can apply. This is defined as the date your electricity meter was installed.

Homes built from 2006 onwards should have been constructed to the 2003 Building Regulations and should not need significant upgrades.

Your property will not be eligible for a Heating Controls grant if you are applying for, or have previously claimed, a Heat Pump System grant. This is because a Heat Pump System must incorporate heating controls as part of the grant works.
