Residents with broken gas boilers in Stafford Borough are being urged to contact the council’s energy advice service as soon as possible, to make sure they don’t miss out on funding, which  is available to replace mains gas boilers for eligible home owners until the end of March.

A number of householders across the borough have already benefitted from the Emergency Central Heating Offer.

You could be in line for funding if you have less than £21,000 income, after mortgage or rent payments, or sre in receipt of disability benefits such as Personal Independence Payments or Disability Living Allowance.

Davina Allen from Warmer Homes Stafford, said: “We find many people’s boilers are breaking down, after working hard all winter. If this is the case, it’s well worth giving our energy advisors a ring for a short assessment. We can often help people save money on their winter fuel bills too.”
