Boiler Scrappage Scheme

Get £400 off the cost of your new boiler!

This newly announced government initiative will provide £400 to every household to upgrade their old, inefficient boilers to newer, Band A rated units.

In the Pre-Budget Report (December 2009) the Chancellor Alistair Darling unveiled plans to encourage households in the UK to replace older inefficient boilers with modern greener versions. Below is the extract from the relevant part of the report (Supporting low-carbon growth):

"Installing an efficient heating system can be another cost-effective way to cut household energy bills and carbon emissions, as domestic heating accounts for 13 per cent of UK greenhouse gas emissions. Replacing an older boiler with the latest efficient models can reduce a household’s energy bill by around £230 a year. The Pre-Budget Report announces a £400 incentive to help up to 125,000 households upgrade their boiler, available to those who buy a new boiler or renewable heat unit to replace a working G-rated boiler. The Government will work with industry to launch the scheme at the earliest opportunity in 2010."
