Portsmouth City Council is offering free first time central heating for households in Portsmouth, Havant and Gosport. The  Warmer Homes scheme intends to deliver 1,500 free central heating installations to people with electric heating or those heated by gas fires/heaters. Electric heating is one of the most expensive forms of heating, costing up to three times the cost of gas central heating.

The scheme is available to families on low incomes, those in receipt of means-tested benefits, those with long-term health issues or those in vulnerable situations.
