Households considering a new boiler can benefit from a £350 grant from Npower, as the energy supplier is stepping in to fill the void created by the three-month suspension of the Government’s Warm Front scheme.
Npower will be offering this grant to residents aged 60 or over, which can be reclaimed against the cost of a new boiler. The £350 scheme will run until April, when the Government’s own £300 scheme will resume.
To qualify for this grant, your boiler must be at least 10 years old, and the scheme will only be open to those living in England.
Npower is keen for Brits to trade up on their old boiler, as this can increase the energy efficiency of their home dramatically. A new A-rated boiler can be over 90 per cent energy efficient, a 30 per cent improvement on some old boilers.
Joan Coe, marketing manager for npower hometeam, added that "Old boilers are more susceptible to breaking down. This can pose a health and safety risk to homeowners as well as having financial implications.”
