What is an Air Source Heat Pump?
The Connected for Warmth programme installs heating and insulation measures into homes across Britain. Our aim is to reduce energy bills, reduce carbon emissions and make homes comfortable.
It is run by AgilityEco in partnership with Affordable Warmth Solutions – two of the country’s leading experts in domestic energy efficiency and affordable warmth. We work with local authorities, companies and charities to identify and support homes that can benefit from the grant funding that we have available.
Everything that we do is free for residents, with the funding coming from the following sources:
The Warm Homes Fund: a national grant fund of £150 million that has been established by National Grid and is administered by Affordable Warmth Solutions
The Energy Company Obligation: funding that energy suppliers are required to spend on energy efficiency measures into fuel poor homes
The National Grid Support Fund: part of the £50 million committed by National Grid to help alleviate financial distress caused by rising energy costs.
The Boiler Upgrade Scheme: a grant from the Government for the installation of low carbon heating
Private landlords: the insulation programme is fully funded for privately rented properties.
To date the Connected for Warmth programme has supported thousands of households across Britain, and was recognised as the National Boiler and Heating project of the year at the 2021 National Energy Efficiency Awards.
