The boiler upgrade scheme explained simply!
Boiler upgrade scheme is the latest of several government financial assistance schemes to encourage the uptake of ground source and air source heat pumps for heating domestic and non-domestic properties having up to 45 kW heat demand. It also allows support for biomass boilers in non-urban situations.
The Government is operating the new scheme as a voucher scheme. The installer, who must be a Microgeneration certification scheme (MCS) accredited installer, applies on the customers behalf to obtain the voucher. Once the voucher is issued the installer has 3 months to install the equipment and then can claim the grant from the Government to go towards the cost of the installation.
There are several conditions attached to the grant that must be complied with. These include insulation to loft and walls an EPC certificate and some technical stipulations such as the size of radiators or type of underfloor heating.
We have been involved in the previous schemes and are experienced at surveying, design, install and certifying to meet the MCS standard to enable you to successfully obtain the grant.
Modern heat pumps are efficient machines that have a low carbon footprint, therefore the Government financially supports the installation of heat pumps in its campaign to lower the carbon footprint of the UK.
Should you wish to have an sir source heat pump installed the government will contribute £5,000 towards the installation cost whilst funds are available. If you need a ground source heat pump you will get a £6,000 contribution towards the installation cost, they have also eliminated VAT!
When all the funds have been allocated the scheme will close. To ensure you claim your £5,000 / £6,000 entitlement fill out our enquiry form and we will get back in touch you you to provide an estimate. Because when its gone.. Its gone!
