Energy efficient boiler....

The boiler scrappage scheme, for landlords in Scotland who list properties with residential letting agents, could find it easier to attract potential tenants if they take advantage of this great scheme.

Homeowners and landlords, if they go along with the scheme and replace all old inefficient boilers with a new eco-friendly model, will get a £400 voucher. The new boiler must be recommended by the energy-saving trust. This is being issued because the Scottish governments are adding £1.5 million to the scrappage scheme, a portion of this (£500,00) had been reserved for private landlords.

“The boiler scrappage scheme had been a resounding success with over 6,000 households benefiting this year to date. Around a further 2,400 private homes will benefit from a cash injection, together with around an additional 1,200 households via private landlords, ” said Alex Neil, cabinet secretary for infrastructure and capital investment.

The scheme has reported to be able to improve the energy efficiency of properties which then lead to lower bills for tenants. A private landlord named Dr Aaron Sam, has benefitted greatly from this scheme. He commented:  “My residents are delighted, i have one couple in a one bedroomed flat and they are reporting more than a 50 per cent reduction in their gas bills. “As well as offering real value for money, the new boilers give me peace of mind and reflect the high standards of rental i offer my tenants.”

Even though this scheme is only available in Scotland, homeowners and landlords in the UK may want to consider installing new boilers in their properties. The green deal will be available to help fund energy efficiency improvements which include this from October next year.
