UK’s Air Source Heat Pump Grant: What You Need to Know

As the UK government continues to strive for net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, sustainable and energy-efficient heating solutions like Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHPs) are becoming increasingly vital. Not only can ASHPs significantly reduce your environmental impact, but they can also provide considerable energy savings.

Previously, the government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme provided financial incentives for installing sustainable heating systems. However, since the RHI’s closure in March 2022, a new scheme has taken its place – the Boiler Upgrade Scheme.

The Boiler Upgrade Scheme

The Boiler Upgrade Scheme is the UK government’s latest initiative to promote the switch to low-carbon heating systems. Through this scheme, homeowners installing heat pumps like ASHPs can receive grants to offset the installation costs. This support makes the transition to renewable heating systems more financially accessible, contributing significantly to the nation’s carbon reduction goals.

Eligibility for the Boiler Upgrade Scheme

To qualify for the Boiler Upgrade Scheme, there are certain requirements homeowners must meet:

The heat pump must be installed by a Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) certified installer. This certification guarantees that the installation meets necessary standards of performance and workmanship. As an MCS certified installer, Herts Air Source is well-equipped to guide you through the application process.

The property must have appropriate insulation levels to ensure the heat pump operates efficiently. Prior to installation, consider your home’s insulation and overall energy efficiency to maximise the benefits of both the heating system and the available grant.

Applying for the Boiler Upgrade Scheme

Once the scheme officially opens, the application process for the Boiler Upgrade Scheme is expected to be straightforward. Our team at Herts Air Source can assist you throughout the application process, providing all the necessary information and documentation required for a successful grant application.

Conclusion

Making the switch to renewable heating solutions like ASHPs is a significant step towards a greener future. The Boiler Upgrade Scheme aims to make this transition more affordable for homeowners across the UK.
