New London boiler cashback scheme gets a thumbs up from HHIC

London Mayor, Boris Johnson has the full support of the UK heating industry as he launches a new Boiler Cashback Scheme. The new scheme is part of the Mayor's plans to reduce London's emissions by 60% by 2025. 

The Boiler Cashback scheme will provide 6,500 owner occupiers and private landlords each with £400 cash back when they replace an inefficient boiler with a new 90% efficient gas boiler or renewable low carbon heating system.

Stewart Clements, Director of HHIC said "This is a great scheme. We know that there are 9 million inefficient boilers operating in UK homes. These boilers use more energy, creating more carbon emissions and are more expensive to run than their modern day counterparts. We also know from the national boiler scrappage scheme that operated in 2010 that replacing a boiler is often the catalyst for installing other energy efficiency measures, such as TVR's and heating controls - all of which help reduce household bills and carbon emissions.

It is also refreshing that the scheme will be marketed via the local boroughs existing referral mechanisms to ensure that those in fuel poverty and with seasonal health needs are targeted and that Gas Safe Registered installers will be able to undertake the installation work without being forced to gain additional and costly accreditations. The Mayor and his team have clearly done their homework and are pulling out all of the stops to deliver a first class programme. I hope that MP's are watching closely so that once the benefits are clearly demonstrated it can be rolled out across their constituencies."

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson said: "This scorching scheme will help 6,500 London homes become more energy efficient and cut annual bills. 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."

The scheme will be administered by the Energy Saving Trust.
