Why is it only at the most inconvenient moment that a boiler breaks? Like the coldest week in winter, or just as you’re going away for a few days. Replacing boilers can be extremely expensive, and the average modern boiler costs between £1,500 and £2,500. When you’re suddenly faced with finding that amount of cash or trying to cope with no heating and hot water, it can be extremely scary and daunting.
Luckily, the government has created a number of schemes over the past decade to keep the most vulnerable people in society warm and cosy. The Winter Fuel Payment was created as a way to help the elderly keep up with ever increasing energy bills.
