Storage Heater Grants for Pensioners - The Process

Once you have completed our online form, a member of our friendly team will telephone you to confirm the information you have provided. We will explain how the storage heater grants for pensioners scheme works and answer any questions you may have about it.

We will then arrange a free survey of your existing heating system. You may need to have your current state benefit award letters available for the surveyor to see. And if you are a private tenant we will also need your landlord’s details so that we can obtain their permission to install new storage heaters in your home.

Once the installer has completed the paperwork for your application they will send it to the ECO Funding organisation which will check that you qualify. When your Storage Heater Grant has been approved they will contact you to arrange the installation by qualified electricians. Then you can relax in a warm home knowing that your new storage heaters will reduce your future heating bills.

Will I Have to Pay Anything?

The amount of storage heater grants for pensioners is based on the reduction in carbon emissions achieved by upgrading your heating system. The more you cut your carbon footprint, the higher your storage heater grant will be.

For some pensioners, the storage heater grant will cover the full cost of installing new storage heaters but for others there may be a contribution required. This cannot be calculated until after a free survey has been carried out but if, once you know the amount of any contribution you decide not to proceed, there will be no charge.

However, modern high heat retention storage heaters are up to 30% more energy efficient than older ones, so even if you do have to contribute to the cost, you will make savings on your heating bills.

Will I Lose My Winter Fuel Allowance?

Winter Fuel Allowance of between £100 and £300 is a tax-free payment to help with your heating bills during the cold weather. If you qualify for a storage heater grant or a boiler grant it will not affect your winter fuel allowance.

The winter fuel payment is paid automatically to householders who receive State Pension or certain other social security benefits. If you don’t currently receive a winter fuel allowance but think you may qualify, you can do so at https://www.gov.uk/winter-fuel-payment/how-to-claim.
