Cash Help Will Be Warmly Received; FAMILIES COULD GET Pounds 400 TOWARD NEW BOILER


Byline: AMY HUNT

A SCHEME which could see hundreds of North East families benefit from cheaper and greener heating will get off the ground next week.

As part of the Government's boiler scrappage scheme householders will be able to claim back pounds 400 against the cost of a new boiler if they get rid of their old one.

The scheme is seen as an important part of efforts to cut the impact which home heating has on the environment and to meet national targets for slashing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

Householders could see their annual heating bill drop by pounds 235 by making the switch.

Here are answers to some of the burning questions. How do I find out if my boiler is eligible? The scheme is open to homeowners, private tenants and private landlords. For those under 60 they can only apply for the scheme if the boiler to be scrapped is in working order and is the main boiler used to heat the home. For over 60s the boiler does not need to be in working order.

If your boiler is gas-fired and more than 15 years old it is likely to be eligible. If it is oil fired and more than 25 years old, it is likely to be eligible.

To find out if your home has a G-rated or equivalent boiler, call the ACT ON CO2 advice line on 0800 512 012 or visit www.governmentboiler-scrappagescheme. info/index.html How do I get the pounds 400? To take advantage of the scheme householders should get a quote from a boiler installer then call the Government's ACT ON CO2 advice line on 0800 512 012 to register. A pounds 400 voucher will be issued, which will be valid for 12 weeks against the full cost of the installation. Once you receive your invoice from your installer you should pay for the work up front before sending off the paperwork to claim the pounds 400 rebate.

The Energy Saving Trust recommends people shop around to find the best deal on their new boiler.

What if I cannot afford to pay up front then claim the rebate? The Government's Warm Front programme, managed by Newcastle-based eaga, is open to low-income households and over-60s. …
