Press Release: December 22, 2009
Indeed, by simply replacing old and inefficient Central Heating Boilers with more energy efficient A rated boilers, a households energy bill can be reduced by as much as £230 over the course of a year and, carbon dioxide emissions by up to a tonne.
The Government is to invest a total of £50million into the scheme from which over 125,000 households are expected to benefit.
Managed by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), the scheme will offer homeowners with a G rated boiler of 70% efficiency an allowance of £400 to put towards a replacement boiler - the scheme is expected to also include un-rated boilers of efficiency less than 70% but this is yet to be confirmed
David Holmes founder of Boiler Guide commented: The boiler scrappage scheme is likely to be well received by heating engineers around the UK as it will increase a workload that can, at times, be slightly seasonal. Furthermore, with the scheme being capped, its expected that there will be a consumer rush to apply for the allowance so, home owners would be well advised to obtain quotes for a boiler replacement as soon as possible.
Boilerguide.co.uk is a valuable resource for both home owners and heating engineers, as a source of information and lead generation respectively. Home owners can obtain quotes on boiler servicing and replacement as well as find guides on a wide variety of heating areas, such as condensing boilers, and also information on brand specific boilers, such as Worcester boilers.
Heating engineers can register with Boilerguide for free, and receive leads in their geographical area through email or SMS alerts. Each engineer must only pay a small percentage to Boilerguide once a lead is successfully responded to and completed, guaranteeing a return on investment for tradesmen.
