    If you are 60+, or on certain benefits dont forget heating grants 20th Apr 06 at 3:04 PM
    Its just a reminder that if you are 60+ or on certain benefits dont forget heating/insulation grants. You can get up to 2,700 towards insulation and heating. It doesnt quite stretch to a full heating system, but if you are like me and old boiler (joke) well actually if you have a boiler over 8 years you may get help if you are on certain benefits or over 60. Fuel is rocketing all the time, now is the time to consider doing this for later this year as it can take up to 6 months to get this grant, think of the savings in fuel alone?

    In Feb we got our old boiler removed an replaced with a new boiler, Vallance we got told one of the best boilers today by inspector.
