Because an old central heating boiler can still heat

Ketel voor Even

With many central heating boilers that we collect, only a single part is broken or worn. Not doing anything with it would be a waste! And as a result of the energy transition, we expect the number of old central heating boilers we get in will only increase in the years to come. In collaboration with Refurn and MrServitization, we developed the ‘Ketel voor Even’ concept. This provides an ideal temporary boiler for housing associations or consumers if, for example, you are making the transition to a gas-free home. This way you prevent waste and you still have a good boiler. Although it’s only temporary.

  • Step 1: Collect the old boiler

    We check every discarded boiler that comes in. Is the boiler still good enough to refurbish? In that case, we keep it separate for the Ketel voor Even scheme. In our choice, we do take into account that the boiler is of such a quality that it can still last for a while.

  • Step 2: Refurn refurbishes boilers and is a sheltered employer

    Refurn, our cooperation partner, refurbishes the central heating boiler. Refurn creates workplaces for people with poor job prospects and also organises entry-level training for building engineering. This way, Refurn gives people who have an affinity with technology an opportunity to gain work experience. At Refurn, the social contribution is key.

  • Step 3: Local installer, always close

    We work with local, certified installers. They are familiar with your current situation and are able to think along about your future situation: off gas. The Ketel voor Even scheme prevents waste in getting there. Our affiliated installers like to go that extra mile.

  • Step 4: Temporary boiler, value for money

    What we supply through our partners is simple: a working central heating boiler. No hassle and professionally. The main driver behind the Ketel voor Even scheme is the prevention of waste. Our overhaul line does not have the scale of a producer of central heating boilers, but we are working hard to make the world a better place. And that doesn’t need to cost an arm and a leg!

Ketel voor Even:
the temporary solution to a natural gas-free home!


You don’t scrap a car that is 2 or 3 years old, so why would you a boiler? We often receive discarded boilers, which are still working fine. For example, from rented properties that switch to district heating. It’s our aim to bring all suitable boilers back onto the market. This way, you can avoid a lot of e-waste.
