Qualifying Criteria Explained

There are around 6.5 million householders facing the misery of fuel poverty – the recent increase in this number is due mainly to the rise in energy prices and energy inefficient homes.

Through our relationship with Cadent we work in partnership with leading energy suppliers and other key strategic organisations, Affordable Warmth Solutions are targeting some of the most vulnerable ‘non-gas’ homes and communities across Cadent’s gas distribution network areas.

We offer qualifying householders free or heavily discounted gas connections and through our partners  new or improved central heating systems; cavity wall and loft insulation; that helps to reduce householder’s energy consumption and at the same time having a positive effect on the environment.


What is the Qualifying Criteria?

If you are a home owner, live in a privately rented property or live in a Social Housing, there are a variety of ways in which you could qualify for a gas connection voucher:

You must have the relevant EPC rating and be:

  • A home owner or live in a privately rented property and receive key qualifying benefits.
  • A social tenant and have a letter to confirm they are installing heating within two years.

Typical examples of health conditions made worse by living in a cold home include chronic respiratory condition, cardiovascular condition, musculoskeletal illness or mental health condition.
