    Heating Incentive - Seen on FaceBook

    Heating Incentive - Seen on FaceBook 18th Jul 17 at 1:54 PM
    Hi,


    I'm in the market for a new boiler and my partner has just shown me a facebook post/page which shows MSE as the icon but the link goes to heating incentive . com.


    I'm dubious so could someone please clarify if there is government funding to replace your new boiler or whether this is as dodgy as it first appears.


    Thanks

    I think I've confirmed is validity with a bit more digging.


    Nothing to do with Martin, not government funded, 10 year credit agreement.


    Scum bags, but hopefully this post will make it easier to search and find the answer.

    Shame! It happens quite a bit... https://twitter.com/MoneySavingExp/status/888002850982416384

    OP, I'm in the market for a new boiler too. Please let me know if you find a good deal changing from water cylinder to combi.

    A fake BBC news site, that doesn't even work now.
    (possibly overloaded now that MSE has promoted it)
    It appears the report actually stems from 24 January, but presumably someone has only recently told MSE about it, hence todays tweet by them

    You can tell Summer is here, can't you

    Hi,
    I have stupidly contacted this site and have someone coming to my house. I have since read this thread, does anyone have any contact details for this company, so I can cancel the appointmen?

    Thanks

    Can't you poke them on facebook or summut?
    How did you contact them and/or them you to arrange the appointment in the first place???

    Alternatively, if the guy doesn't turn up with your free boiler under his arm, don't let him in.

    Or if you have to go out when he calls, so be it....

    Hi, did you manage to contact this company and cancel your appointment. I too have made an appointment which I wish to cancel after seeing Martin's FB video and his reply to me. I cannot contact them on the number they contacted me on and their website gives no contact details....
