  1. Government grants for replacement boilers for people who fall into the green deal scheme fail to recognise that old boilers are in many properties outside of this. Repairing not replacing these because the user cannot afford it in the short term, combined with proven reliability is the reason for this. Introducing a free replacement or assisted scheme for boilers over 15 years would make sense.
    Users will always keep their reliable working old water heaters until a better incentive is introduced.
    I personally have seen a considerable rise in gas fires being serviced as gas prices rise in preference to putting on their central heating. However, it ceases to amaze me that gas fires are sold at less than £200 with a 55% efficiency
