Why should I apply?

If you’re heating your home using electricity you could be paying as up to 3 times as much as those who use gas central heating. A gas central heating system can save you hundreds of pounds on your energy bills and keep your home warm and healthy for less.

Normally you would have to pay up to £6,000 for a new central heating system to be installed in your house. But through Portsmouth City Council you don’t have to pay anything!
