Government Grants for Installation of Air Source Heat Pumps

The Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS)

As part of the UK’s 2050 Net Zero target, air source heat pumps are fast becoming a popular and affordable solution to heating homes in the UK.

The Boiler Upgrade Scheme* is a government incentive to assist with the upfront costs of replacing fossil fuel heating systems with a heat pump or biomass boiler (*check if you’re eligible).

From 23rd October 2023, the grants available are:
  • £7,500 off the cost and installation of an air source heat pump
  • £7,500 off the cost and installation of a ground source heat pump
  • £5,000 off the cost and installation of a biomass boiler

Until 31st March 2027, there is NO VAT on renewable energy products, which includes heat pumps, so there’s never been a better time to install an Air Source Heat Pump.

What is a Heat Pump?

There are three main types of heat pump available, Air, Ground & Water Source. At present we only install Air Source Heat Pumps as these are the most popular and simplest solution for the majority of our customers.

How does an Air Source Heat Pump work?

Warmth from the air outside your home is pulled in through the pump, which then heats a special refrigerant liquid. This liquid turns into a gas as it heats up. The gas is compressed and as it compresses, the temperature increases and this lovely heat is then released into your home. Air Source Heat pumps do use electricity, but the amount of heat delivered into your home outweighs the amount of electricity used to power it.

An Air Source Heat Pump is a highly energy efficient way to heat your home, with efficiency rates of around 300%, compared to 90% for an A-rated gas boiler.
