Better Homes York is a council-endorsed energy efficiency scheme set up to help homeowners, private tenants and private landlords across the city. The aim of the scheme is to create warmer, healthier homes and to reduce the cost of fuel bills.
You can find out how energy efficient your home is by checking its Energy Performance Certificate.
Find out if you qualify for financial assistance
If you're a disabled person or have a long term health condition and live in a home which you own and your heating boiler is beyond economical repair, you may be able to get financial assistance to help to replace it. Our Discretionary Adaptation Grant works with Better Homes Yorkshire to provide quality assured boiler replacements which meet all of the current Regulations and requirements.
If you do not have a disability but are in receipt of means tested benefits there may be other forms of assistance available.
For further information contact the Housing Standards and Adaptations Team using the details below.
Able to pay customers
If you are able to pay, our partner Better Homes Yorkshire can still arrange for an approved installer to carry out quality assured work at your property. Boiler replacements can cost as little as £2,000 and boiler finance options are available.
Loft, cavity wall and solid wall insulation at competitive rates may also be available. Visit Better Homes Yorkshire for more information.
