Families are being urged to check their boilers ahead of the winter months and apply for a cash boost if it needs fixing or upgrading.
The Boiler Replacement scheme offers homeowners, private tenants and landlords living within the Bicester ring road the chance to claim up to £300 cashback towards a boiler upgrade.
The scheme is available if your gas, LPG or oil boiler is rated as D or below or if it is at least ten years old.
Tony Ilott, lead member for clean and green, said: “People are beginning to turn their heating on ready for winter and while this will result in a warm and toasty home for most, for others they will discover faults or problems with their boilers which can prove costly to repair.
“This offer of £300 cashback will go a long way to helping people to install a new, energy efficient boiler.
“It may surprise people to know that boilers can account for up to 60 per cent of annual energy bills so this scheme will not only help to get homes warm once again, but it could generate significantly cheaper energy bills at the same time.”
The scheme is funded by the Eco-Bicester Strategic Delivery Board and delivered by the National Energy Foundation.
Families interested in receiving the cashback must first register their interest and arrange a no-obligation survey.
