Save on new boiler installs!
The Boiler Scrappage Scheme in Wales has ended, with all the allocated vouchers being given out, however there are still ways to save a lot of money on your boiler.
The follow-on scheme from England proved so popular that all of the allocated tickets that were available have now been handed out, with the vast majority of them having been converted into savings on a new boiler installation. We’ve compiled some information on what the scheme offered, and how you can still save a lot of money despite the boiler scrappage scheme in Wales ending.
The Scrappage Scheme in Wales followed on from the highly successful English venture (which also allocated all the available vouchers in a matter of months). The primary aim was to help reduce carbon emissions caused by the usage of old G-Grade boiler systems which were extremely inefficient when compared to modern boilers. The scheme offered a £400 money off voucher if you upgraded your G-Grade boiler to a high efficiency A-Grade boiler, which convert up to 40% more fuel to heat.
IYes, and a lot of it! We think there are three key ways in which you can still save a lot of money in Wales when looking to find a cheap boiler installation and we’ve detailed them below, as well as information on grant schemes.
This is one of those cases where spending some money will help you to save a lot of money in the long-run. New A-Grade boilers (known as high-efficiency boilers) convert over 90% of fuel to heat. Older less efficent G-Grade boilers converted just 50-60% of fuel to heat. What this means for you, is that year on year, you will use a significantly lower amount of fuel, lowering your annual bills and also producing far less harmful emissions.
The average UK household can save around £200 per year on their fuel bills alone!
