Save on new boiler installs!
The Boiler Scrappage Scheme in Scotland proved just as popular as its English and Welsh counterparts, and as a result the scheme has now closed. However you can still save a lot of money on a new boiler! All the allocated vouchers and funding were exhausted in a matter of months proving the popularity of this scheme, and the demand is still high to save money.
The scheme was introduced to raise awareness and interest in newer A-grade high-efficiency boilers, which converted some 30-40% more fuel to heat than older less efficient G-Grade boilers. It offered £400 cash back if you upgraded to a new boiler in an attempt to encourage energy efficiency.
The scheme’s funding was always limited, and because of the popularity that ensued, all of the vouchers have now been allocated, with the vast majority being converted into significant savings on a new boiler installation.
The Scottish Government however has introduced new funding for a Boiler Scrappage Scheme for private sector landlords in Scotland. This mirrors the original scheme by offering £400 of a high-efficiency boiler installation in rented properties. It was launched in November 2010, and you can find more information here: www.energysavingtrust.org.uk
