Highland Council Energy Efficient Scotland: Area Based Scheme (ees:abs) - First Time Central Heating

17th August 2021

There is still time for eligible residents to benefit from up to 100%* Scottish Government grant funding available for First Time Central Heating.

This would be delivered through the installation of an air source heat pump, new radiators and new controls.

An air source heat pump uses electricity to extract heat from the outside air and can be used to heat both the home and the hot water tank.

This will generate warmth in one central place, distributing the heat through pipes to radiators throughout the home and will provide you with full control of your heating system.

To be eligible for funding, the property must be:

Owner occupied or privately rented and must be your main residence
Council Tax band A-C, D where the EPC rating is E, F or G
Electrically heated
Full eligibility criteria can be found here:
