Help Reduce The Cost Of Installation
Government Grants
The Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS)

Grants for Air Source Heat Pumps In The UK

Heating homes, businesses and industry is responsible for a third of the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions. Switching to low carbon heating can help to reduce a building’s greenhouse gas emissions.

The aim of the Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) is to reduce the cost of installing low carbon heating systems to encourage more homeowners to move away from fossil-fuel based systems.

Compared to fossil fuel systems such as traditional boilers, low carbon alternatives are typically more costly to install, and this can therefore be a barrier for homeowners looking to change or upgrade their existing system. The most common low carbon alternatives are heat pumps and biomass boilers, with the scheme providing funding for both air source and ground source heat pumps.

Criteria For The Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) Grant

Properties need to meet a minimum criteria for the grant. i.e there needs to be no recommendation for loft and cavity wall insulation on your EPC certificate. If there is a requirement for extra insulation then this can be done and then the Grant can be applied for.

If you have an old property with high heat losses e.g old single glazing, poor insulation, then your money would be better spent upgrading your home first. A heat pump that has to work incredibly hard to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home will not be cheap to run!

The BUS operates in the form of a grant voucher worth up to £7,500 which is provided to the installer after installation and commissioning, with the expected amount deducted from the home owners upfront cost.

How We Apply For The BUS Grant For You

  • Once contacted by yourselves we would make an initial assessment on whether you property meets the criteria for a BUS application.
  • We would give you a quote for the heat pump installation.
  • If you were happy and decided to continue, we would apply for the BUS grant on your behalf.
  • This amount would be discounted from your final bill.
  • On Completion of commissioning your heat pump, you would pay us the balance
  • We would then be paid the grant amount after the installation is completed.
