If you want to replace your inefficient boiler, you can apply for a £400 voucher towards the cost.
Scotland has one of the most ambitious CO2 emission reduction targets in the world. The installation of an efficient heating system is one effective way of reducing your household energy bills and CO2 emissions. There are currently an estimated 250,000 homes in Scotland that have boilers of the least efficient type (efficiency of less than 70%).
To help address this, the Scottish Government has announced funding for the boiler scrappage scheme for owner occupiers in Scotland. Scrappage schemes work by helping to meet the cost of replacing inefficient equipment with new more efficient alternatives.
The Energy Saving Scotland Boiler Scrappage Scheme builds upon its earlier success from its launch in May 2010. It will offer owner occupiers a voucher entitling them to a £400 subsidy from the Scottish Government towards the cost of upgrading inefficient boilers with an Energy Saving Trust Recommended (ESTR) boiler in their property.
