New Boilers For 18,000 home
A further £7.5 million is to be invested in a scheme to help households across Scotland switch from poorly-performing boilers to a more energy efficient model. The Scottish Government’s Boiler Scrappage Scheme could see 18,000 Scottish households benefit from a new boiler this winter.
Households could benefit from a £400 grant towards the cost of their new boiler by applying here or by calling the Home Energy Scotland Hotline on 0800 512012.
Households who have a central heating boiler which has an efficiency of less than 70 per cent (according to the SEDBUK database (www.sedbuk.com), can qualify for cash back as long as they install an Energy Saving Trust Recommended boiler (see scheme eligibility criteria and terms and conditions on the Energy Saving trust website).
Installers must be registered with Gas Safe (for gas installations) and should be a member of a recognised industry body such as SNIPEF.
