Plumbers, builders merchants and plumbers merchants in Scotland are likely to see an increase in business if, as suggested today, the Scottish Parliament passes its Budget which includes a boiler scrappage scheme.
The BBC reports that Scottish ministers are likely to back the budget and announce a £2m plan to fund the replacement of older, inefficient boilers with new, high efficiency models. The scheme would give £400 help to anyone replacing the most inefficient category domestic boiler to £400 assistance.
A similar scheme, already running in England and being administered by the Energy Savings Trust, has had over 200,000 enquiries since its launch in mid-January.
