Boiler scrappage grant

The boiler scrappage scheme is now closed. The scheme, introduced in January 2010, gave people £400 cash-back to replace certain old, energy-inefficient boilers with newer, more efficient boilers.

Boiler scrappage scheme now closed

All the vouchers available under the boiler scrappage scheme have been given out. No more funding will be made available to the scheme, so it is now closed to new applications.

For further information, you can visit the Energy Saving Trust website.

Why scrap your old boiler?

The boiler scrappage scheme is now closed

Old boilers use energy in a far less efficient way than newer models. This means higher energy bills and higher levels of CO2 emissions. Domestic heating accounts for 14 per cent of the UK’s CO2 emissions.

Even though the boiler scrappage scheme is closed, you can still replace your old boiler. This can help cut your bills and reduce your carbon footprint.
