Who can apply

All homeowners, including landlords, whose homes were built and occupied before 2006 can apply. Homes built from 2006 onwards should have been constructed to the 2003 Building Regulations and should not need significant upgrades. This is defined as the date your electricity meter was installed.

In the case of a Heat Pump System grant application, or where a Heat Pump System grant has previously been claimed, the property is not eligible for a separate grant for Heating Controls Upgrade. This is because a Heat Pump System must incorporate the installation of appropriate heating controls as part of the grant works.
