HOMEOWNERS in Banbridge only have a few weeks left to grab a ‘Toasty Homes’ grant, securing up to £1500 towards the installation costs of converting to a new natural gas heating system.
Last year more than 600 homeowners benefited from the scheme, including Jim Malloy from Banbridge, who enjoyed a toasty, warm, fuel-efficient winter in his home.
He commented: “I am delighted that we made the switch to natural gas. It has been great to have a constant supply of warmth and hot water 24/7, especially during the colder months. My home feels cosier than ever and we are certainly enjoying the lower monthly fuel bills!
