npower Hometeam Hunts For Britains Oldest Boiler
on: May 26, 2010, 03:38 am
npower hometeam has overseen the removal of hundreds of
ancient boilers across the length and breadth of the country since the
Government's boiler scrappage scheme launched in January. Now npower
hometeam is on a nationwide hunt to find Britain's Oldest Boiler.
With record numbers of Brits taking advantage of the boiler scrappage scheme, which offers consumers £400 off a
new, energy efficient boiler when replacing one which is G-Rated, hometeam engineers
have uncovered several antique systems.
Inspired by these discoveries, npower hometeam is launching a nationwide hunt to
find Britain's Oldest Boiler.
Richard Cotton, head of sales for npower hometeam, commented: "If your boiler is
particularly old - perhaps the same age as your grown-up children, or has been in
the house longer than you have been married - you could be the owner of Britain's
The owner of the oldest system uncovered will win £3,000 towards a brand new A-rated
energy efficient boiler, and installation.
npower was the first energy supplier to pledge to continue its boiler scrappage
scheme once the Government scheme closed, meaning consumers could still be eligible
to receive as much as £400 towards the cost of a new boiler; almost a third off the
cost of a typical installation.
Even though there can be only one winner of the prize for Britain's oldest boiler,
npower is keen to highlight the need to properly protect household boilers
regardless of their age to ensure they are safe and efficient. npower hometeam 50 is
a pioneering new boiler care product that gives help to customers when they need it
and 50% No Call Out Cash Back if they don't use the service
For any npower gas and electricity customer who doesn't call out npower hometeam to
work on their boiler during the 12 month agreement period, npower returns 50% of the
cost of their annual membership to them after their year's anniversary. Also
included in npower hometeam 50 is an annual gas boiler service, usually worth £74 - which when
combined with the 50% (£63) cash back, means customers could be quids in if they
don't need to call out an engineer.
