Boiler scrappage scheme .

The government's boiler scrappage scheme has proven so popular that all available 125,000 money-saving vouchers have been snapped up in less than four months.

Launched in January, the scheme was open to any household which relied on a G-rated gas boiler to power its central heating.

The vouchers provided £400 off the cost of either a new gas condensing boiler, wood-burning biomass boiler or renewable energy ground source heat pump.

However, the campaign is now closed to new entrants, with all of the vouchers accounted for, which could highlight the success of the campaign.

Lord Hunt, energy and climate change minister, said: "The scheme's been a great success and is already helping people cut down on their fuel bills. An A-rated energy efficient boiler can help save around £200 a year off fuel bills and reduce emissions."

While the scheme may now be closed, Britons may still wish to upgrade their central heating systems by investing in a new condensing boiler in order to lower their carbon footprint and utility bills.
