npower Hometeam Hunts For Britains Oldest Boiler

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 Oldest Boiler."

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.
