    Quote for Gas Connection £3000!!!! Any grants available? 16th Jan 09 at 4:08 PM
    Hello!

    We have a 15 yrs or so old house which must not have had gas near by when it was built because it wasn't connected. Now the mains runs straight past the end of our garden (which is very small) and we have asked national grid for a quote for connection as we'd like central heating instead of our useless storage heaters...

    We received our quote today.. £3000.. just to be connected!! Ridiculous, especially as the gas is so close!

    Does anyone know if there are grants available, or anyway to bring the price down as we'll need to pay for the heating after that!

    Thanks

    Install heat pumps if you can. My quote for connection to gas was over £20,000!
