Anxious to integrate an arsenal of energy-efficient boilers into French homes, the ministry has embarked on the reorganization of the energy transition tax credit (Cite). Indeed, Minister François de Rugy has just announced the conditions of eligibility that will promote the change of energy-consuming boiler devices.

Without financial assistance, it is extremely difficult for low-income earning households to renew their boilers. The operation can cost several hundred or even thousands of euros depending on the targeted model. If the less efficient machines are more accessible, those for saving on energy consumption require a much heavier investment.

And it is also on one of these criteria that help to finance a boiler is conditioned. In order to benefit from this, households must change their old fossil fuel system for renewable energy equipment. If this condition is met, the City then depreciates by 30% the amount of the new boiler acquired. In addition, expenses for the dismantling of an oil-fired mechanism can also be covered at 50%

But the minister recently said that the tax credit would be extended. The goal is also to reduce the cost of labor when installing the new device. An extension that is now known since the care is announced at 30%. In addition, the decree 2019-88 informs the conditions of resources to benefit from the eligibility for this assistance. Namely that the ceilings retained are identical to the scale formulated by the housing agency. If renovations of this type are to be made this year, a household must refer to its 2017 reference tax revenue.

Finally, with the Cite, energy suppliers are also used to help their customers invest in more modern systems. Still depending on household income, ineligibility may still lead to the establishment of a payment facility. Households exceeding the ceilings will be able to pay in several monthly installments their new boiler.
