The Mayor of London is running from 9 January 2017 a Better Boilers Scheme.
There is a pot of £1 million which will be allocated on a first come, first served basis for those who meet the eligibility criteria. A simplified version of these is:
- Must be a homeowner
- Be on qualifying benefits – for the older age range that is largely Pension Credit (both Pension Credit Guarantee and Pension Credit Savings) as well as other
- Boiler is broken or boiler is working by at 85% or below efficiency.
Better Boilers Helpline is 0808 108 9414. This is the Energy Savings Trust
