Discounts available to ditch your old boiler
Hammersmith & Fulham residents are now eligible for a discount on low carbon heating technology, such as a heat pump.
Local homeowners may be eligible for up to £6,000 in government funding through the Boiler Upgrade Scheme.
If you want to learn more, join us for a free webinar for H&F residents about heat pumps and the available grants to help pay for them.
Our Q&A session on heat pumps will take place on Tuesday 3 May from 12pm to 1pm.
Officers from H&F Council will be glad to answer questions, including:
- What are heat pumps and why the buzz?
- Should I consider making the switch?
- What government grants are available?
- What planning implications do I need to consider?
Taking climate action together
Currently, most homes are heated by gas boilers, which use fossil fuels and emit carbon dioxide every time they turn on. They also emit other pollutants that harm air quality and our health.
Heat pumps can provide a greener and potentially more cost-efficient way to heat your home. Tune in for our lunchtime webinar to check if they’re the right choice for you.
In 2019, H&F declared a climate and ecological emergency, pledging for the borough to become carbon net zero by 2030. And the way we heat our buildings and homes is one of the biggest challenges in achieving our ambitious target.
Cutting emissions will be cheaper and fairer than having to adapt to severe climate change impacts in the future.
