Stroud District Council to offer grants of up to £4,000 for central heating systems
A District Council will be providing grants of up to £4,000 for home owners who do not currently own a central heating system and would like to have one installed, a recent news report has been able to reveal.
Stroud District Council, along with the other six district councils in the county and South Gloucestershire, has been awarded a share of £25 million government funding to help residents to keep their houses warm and lower their energy bills.
The scheme, run by Warm and Well, is predominantly aimed at properties that are currently heated by costly ‘on peak’ electric systems, although the replacement of other forms of heating systems will also be considered.
The aim is to replace these with modern energy efficient condensing boilers, which could save a household on average £250 a year, based on a family in a three bed semi-detached house.
It is estimated up to 1,000 homes could be installed with new heating systems across Gloucestershire and South Gloucestershire with the government funding.

They typically employ data from a variety of sources (boiler flow and return sensors, internal and external temperature sensors, occupancy sensors, humidity sensors, etc.), and enable the perfect optimization of a building’s boiler-based central heating system.
The end result is that users still get a very good level of comfort, while in the same time saving energy and money in the process. In this way, they would be able to slash their energy use and also their bills, potentially climbing out of fuel poverty.
