Npower will launch a boiler scrappage scheme of its own on Monday.

The energy giant will offer 400 off a new boiler when you replace one over 10 years old.

The announcement follows yesterday's Pre-Budget Report, where the Chancellor stated a Government initiative to recycle old boilers would begin next year (see the PBR: Boiler scrappage scheme MSE News story).

The Government scheme will offer households up to 400 off new boilers when replacing a 'G-Rated' appliance, which is the least efficient type.

Npower says that once the Government initiative gets underway you'll qualify for 800 off a new boiler if your appliance matches the criteria for both schemes and you apply via Npower.

A new boiler could cost anything from 600 to 3,000, depending on the model.

Full details of how this will work have yet to be announced.

Westminster says its plan will help 125,000 households replace old appliances.
