Double Pay-Out of Boiler Scrappage Scheme

There's still more than 54,000 vouchers available under the Government's boiler scrappage scheme.  
18-02-2010
The Government launched the boiler scrappage scheme on 5 January 2010, offering homeowners £400 off a new boiler when replacing one that is G-Rated. In the case of Mark and Marilyn White, who are retired, energy company npower matched the offer. They have lived in Teignmouth, Devon, for over 30 years. Their current home was built in the early 1980’s, at which time their boiler was also installed.   
Mark said: “We’ve had our boiler system for as long as I can remember, so I knew it was important that we get it replaced. However, having looked at the cost of installing a new boiler a few years ago the thought paying out for new one just didn’t appeal. During the big freeze, we began reading more horror stories of people being left without heat and hot water due to boiler breakdowns, which made us re-assess whether it was time to replace it. I had read about the boiler scrappage scheme in the news, and recently took advantage of the car scrappage scheme, so we looked into whether our boiler qualified. I spoke to quite a few suppliers, from big energy firms to local companies. In addition to the Government’s £400 scrappage deal, npower was also offering a further £400 off the cost under their own scheme. They confirmed our boiler qualified, and kept us up to date on when an engineer would be able to reach us. In total, we’ve saved around £800 on the cost of a new boiler.
For more details on the Energy Saving Trust £400 voucher please call 0800 512012.
