Get £400 cashback from Boris to replace your old boiler
- Do you want to make big savings on your energy bills?
- Do you have an old, inefficient boiler?
- Are you a London home owner or an accredited private landlord?
If the answer to all these questions is yes, you could receive £400 towards the cost of upgrading to a new, high efficiency boiler from the Mayor’s new London Boiler Cashback Scheme.
The scheme – which launched on 2 February 2016 – is first-come, first-served. We expect it to be very popular, so please apply soon to avoid disappointment.
Replacing one boiler can save on average each year:
20% less energy used for heating
£340 off your heating bill
7640KWH equal to powering a fridge-freezer for 17 years
The five steps
Step 1: before you apply for the scheme, check the efficiency and type of your current boiler
Your current boiler needs to be 70 per cent or less efficient (We’ve checked this and your boiler does qualify). This is typically a G rated boiler that is either gas, LPG, solid fuel or oil fuelled. Electric boilers or electric heaters do not qualify for the scheme.
You will also need to get a quote from a Gas Safe (formally CORGI) registered installer.
Step 2: apply for the scheme by completing the online application form:
You will need to tell us:
- your contact details, ideally including an email address
- the make and model of your current boiler
- your bank details
- the details of the installer who gave you the quote, as well as their accreditation or registration number – Our Gas Safe Number is: 570385
Step 3: receive your £400 cashback voucher
Once you’ve completed the application, provided that funds are still available, you will receive an email confirming that you have been successful and have been issued with a cashback voucher.
Vouchers are valid for 12 weeks from the date of issue, so you will need to install your boiler within this time. If your boiler is not installed within the 12 weeks, you will no longer qualify for the cashback and your claim will be rejected. You will need to pay for the installation before receiving the cashback.
Step 4: install your new high efficiency boiler, once you’ve received your voucher
The replacement must be an A rated gas or condensing oil boiler (The boiler we have specified is A-Rated)
Step 5: claim your £400 cashback
Send us the voucher, the invoice marked ‘paid’, and all other information as set out in the terms and conditions. This must be sent to us by post and must arrive no later than ten working days after the voucher expiry date. The voucher must be signed by you and your installer and the invoice or receipt must include the installer’s accreditation/registration number.
We will process your payment, via BACS, within 21 working days of receipt. Payment will only be made to you, the applicant, and not to someone else, for example your installer or a letting agent.
