Your Storage Heater Grant may not cover the full cost of replacing all of the electric storage heaters in your home.

If you satisfy the Free Storage Heater Qualifying Criteria but your ECO Grant does not cover the full cost of replacing the electric storage heaters in your home, you will have the chance to make up the shortfall.  Should you choose not to contribute to the cost of replacement electric storage heaters, your application will be cancelled and you will have nothing to pay for the initial survey.
