Scaffold-hire firms are enjoying an increase in business as a spin-off from a government initiative aimed at helping low-income households to become more energy efficient.

The Government is setting aside £125 million for the Green Deal scheme. Free eco boiler installations are available under the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) and Affordable Warmth, a government initiative funded by the utility companies. For a limited time, households can get £400 off any new boiler in a British Gas’s boiler sale, and also claim a Green Deal cashback of up to £270.
Eligible households with an old boiler, or one that’s not working, can apply to install a new A-rated boiler for free. That includes tenants and landlords. If you receive Pension Credit or Child Tax Credit and have a household income of less than £15,860, you will qualify automatically for the free insulation or replacement boiler grant. Your current boiler must be more than 10 years old to qualify. If you do not receive either of these benefits, you can still qualify if you receive various other benefits

But boilers are often in difficult sites, where for health and safety reasons the firms are unable to do the work using a ladder. Hence the run on scaffold towers. Customers themselves are approaching scaffold-hire firms requesting delivery of a tower.
