London Boiler Cashback Scheme
The Mayor launched his London Boiler Cashback Scheme on 2 February 2016 to provide 6,500 owner-occupiers and private residential landlords with a £400 voucher if they replace a working 70% or less efficient boiler with a new 90% efficient or higher-rated boiler or low carbon heating system. What does this mean for the residents of London and how can you get involved?
The scheme is first-come, first-served and they expect it to be very popular, so apply soon to avoid disappointment. Now there are specific eligibility requirements and they can be found here.
With rising fuel prices this is a great opportunity to not only save money on a new boiler, but also to save money on fuel costs. As a Gas Safe Registered installer, we are embracing this scheme in the hope that homeowners in Southwest London will apply for the scheme to take advantage of up to £340 a year savings on your energy bills.
Mayor of London Boris Johnson said: “As well as saving hard earned cash, upgrading an old boiler gives the environment a huge boost by lowering carbon emissions and making our air sweeter. I encourage everyone harbouring ancient boiler artefacts to sign up to my Boiler Cashback Scheme now and benefit from a brand new cost effective heating system.”
As soon as the scheme was announced, Worcester Bosch stepped up and added an additional £100 cashback to homeowners if they choose a Greenstar boiler. As an accredited Worcester Bosch installer we are hopeful that people who are currently struggling with rising fuel costs will apply to help save money.
