I accept that. I am just talking about people who this week and next week will have to replace their boilers. It would appear they have two options. They will either have to spend up to €2,500 to get a new gas boiler or they will have to come up with a significant amount of money, and in some cases this could be €10,000 to €15,000, to go for the retrofitting option. There is nothing in between. Does the SEAI accept this is a significant gap and that it represents a significant difference in terms of expense for people who want to make this type of change?
