Boiler Scrappage Scheme Launched

The Government has launched a new national scheme, the Boiler Scrappage Scheme.  Households in England can apply for a £400 voucher to help with the cost of replacing old, G-rated boilers for a new A-rated boiler or renewable heating system such as a biomass boiler or a heat pump.
The scheme is open to householders, including tenants, and landlords who privately own and rent dwellings.  To be eligible, the boiler to be scrapped must be the main boiler used to heat the home.  If the householder is under 60 years of age the boiler to be scrapped must also be in working order.  However, householders aged 60 and over can apply regardless of whether the boiler is in working order.
The £400 vouchers will be issued from 18 January 2010. Vouchers are only valid for 12 weeks from date of issue.
If you believe that your home has a G-rated or worse boiler and wish to register an interest in the scheme to receive a £400 cashback voucher towards the cost of upgrading to an A-rated boiler, then arrange for your nominated installer to visit and provide you with a quote. You will be required to provide all of the following information:
i) Your full name.
ii) The address of the property you wish to claim the voucher for.
iii) The make and name of the boiler being scrapped.
iv) The company name, address and contact details of the installer carrying out the work.
v) The type of replacement boiler to be installed e.g. gas, biomass.
vi) Confirmation that you have received a quote or visit from the installer to carry out the work.

Once you have this information please email or call ACT ON CO2 advice line on 0800 512 012.
