Boiler Replacement Allowance Ending Soon

08 September 2014

The government funded Boiler Replacement Allowance, which has been made available to householders since 2012 to help with the cost of replacing an old, inefficient boiler, is coming to an end.

As part of the scheme, home owners are eligible for a grant of up to 1000 towards the cost of replacing inefficient boilers that are over 15 years old, with an energy efficient condensing boiler.

The Boiler Replacement Allowance has been a big boost for householders who have upgraded their old inefficient heating systems and are seeing immediate savings, in particular those who have switched to the more affordable natural gas.

The scheme is due to end very soon and homeowners need to act quickly to be able to meet timescales to have the work completed and to claim the grant.

Mike Nesbitt MLA is advising homeowners to take advantage of the scheme before it closes, he commented:

"The Boiler Replacement Allowance has been a step in the right direction to enable homeowners to upgrade their central heating. I want to urge homeowners to take advantage of this scheme before it closes early next year. This grant will no doubt give many local people the confidence to make that step to upgrade their heating system to natural gas.

The scheme has proved to be a very popular with homeowners and I would encourage the Department for Social Development to consider an extension of the grant to allow additional homeowners to avail of the opportunity to replace their old boiler.”

Jonathan Martindale of Phoenix Natural Gas said:

“The scheme has already proven to be a fantastic opportunity for homeowners who have old inefficient heating systems that want to upgrade. There are a range of benefits of natural gas that appeal to consumers and we don’t want anyone to miss out on the grant before it closes. We advise all eligible homeowners considering upgrading to a highly efficient natural gas heating system to get their applications in before the end of the year.”
