Hello to you all, and thank you in advance for any tips you can give, hopefully i have this in the right forum.

I have just applied to Warm Front, for a grant my wife are in reciept of Child Benefit and Tax Credits.(i also have a war pension come in but i dont think that counts as i am not disabled).

Now i believe that they can help in many ways, but what i really need is the boiler replacing, and ideally moved from the bedroom to the loft.


I also need loft insulation but, i as that is not as costly as boiler work, i dont mind paying that myself.

What i need to know is? Has anyone used them before, how do they work, what does it cost you. Is it one job or another, or will they qoute for the whole house.

ust dont wont to sell myself short really.

I did get a qoute of Southeren Electric to replace the boiler and thermosat etc, 5k they wanted: so i just thought id check it this way.
Just any sort of tips before the assessor comes round.

everything would be helpfull

    As far as I know the warmfront scheme only covers boiler replacement if the original boiler is faulty, ie you have no heat or hot water.
    They will however cover loft insulation and cavity wall insulation for free.

    Best to get a local fitter in anyway, v.r....Warmfront etc are overpriced.
    There is a sticky on the subject up top.
