Affordable Warmth’ is one of three ‘Energy Company Obligations’, designed to operate in tandem with the Government’s Green Deal Initiative. Up to £1.3 billion per year (up to the end of March 2015) will be provided by energy suppliers to fund the installation of certain energy efficient products in qualifying homes. These products include cavity wall insulation, solid wall insulation, loft insulation and ‘A’ rated central heating boilers.

The basic rules applying to the Affordable Warmth Obligation are that the homeowner must live in a private property (either owned or rented), must receive certain state benefits and, in respect of the central heating system, must have an inefficient and faulty boiler.

If the householder qualifies, they will not have to contribute anything to the cost of the initial survey, nor the cost of the materials and labour to carry out the installations.
