Ideal Commercial Boilers backs mayor's cashback scheme

Published:  02 August, 2018

Ideal Commercial Boilers is backing the Cleaner Heat cashback scheme announced this week by Mayor of London Sadiq Khan.

The scheme, which will allow SMEs in Greater London to apply for a share of a £10 million pot to replace older, working boilers (ten years plus), will help to reduce overall emission rates within the capital. Commercial boilers account for 7% of total emissions in London.

Ideal Commercial Boilers believes the scheme will be very welcome.

Andy Forrest, National Sales Manager, (pictured) said: “The initiative is a great incentive for businesses to reassess their current carbon footprint. For those who will have to upgrade their current heating systems, there are several incentives available to help with costs. For instance, the initiative offers 30% to 35% cashback on replacement boilers - an incentive that should encourage SMEs to replace older units.

"The added 5% capital expenditure will be a bonus for those customers who are within an Air Quality Focus Area (areas with high levels of carbon emissions). On our part, we will be assisting the process by offering free commissioning on the majority of our condensing commercial boiler range.”

Customers looking to make the changes are being urged to do so quickly as the allocation of funds will be made on a strict first come, first served basis. All applications will also need to be made online.

Eligibility for the initiative specifies that applicants must be a London-based SME and either own the building or have responsibility for it and permission from the landlord to make the appropriate changes.

More information on the scheme is available here.
