Boiler Scrappage Scheme

The Boiler Scrappage Scheme kicks in today in England (only). It is offering £400 to set against the cost of replacing an old rust bucket with a gleaming new A rated boiler. I don't know that much about it, but the grants are being handled by the Energy Savings Trust and the link is here.


  1. And for once we have a government "energy saving scheme" that is simple to operate and doesn't depend on the installer having to be a member of a new BRE administered accreditation scheme.
    No expensive new Quango to disenfrancise qualified tradspeople. Competent people don't have to spend a fortue to become MSC approved installers. Just good old Corgi Registered Now of course, GasSafe.

  2. I think changing the boiler is only the beginning of saving money on heating bills. Ensuring that the heat settings are set properly and controls are correctly set will ensure more money is saved.
