Heat Pump Funding: What Is It and Are You Eligible?

Welcome to our guide on the exciting opportunities available for homeowners and businesses through heat pump funding. If you’re considering upgrading your heating system, you may be eligible for substantial government grants, making this the perfect time to invest in greener, more efficient heating solutions.

How Does the Boiler Upgrade Scheme Work?

The Boiler Upgrade Scheme offers generous grants to assist with the cost of installing low-carbon heating systems. These include:

  • £7,500 towards an air source heat pump
  • £7,500 towards a ground source heat pump

These grants have increased since 23 October 2023, providing even more incentive to switch to renewable heating solutions​​.

Who Is Eligible for the Boiler Upgrade Scheme?

To qualify for the Boiler Upgrade Scheme grants, applicants must meet certain requirements:

  1. Property Ownership: The applicant must own the property where the new heating system will be installed. This includes homes, businesses, second homes, or rental properties.
  2. Existing Heating System: The scheme is designed for properties replacing fossil fuel heating systems (such as oil, gas, or electric).
  3. Energy Performance Certificate (EPC): The property must have a valid EPC with no outstanding recommendations for loft or cavity wall insulation.
  4. Exclusions: Grants are not available for most new-build properties, social housing or properties that have already received government funding for a heat pump or biomass boiler. However, new-build properties with a fossil fuel boiler installed may qualify once construction is completed.
  5. Self-Build Properties: If the property is a self-build, it’s eligible if it was built by the owner or a builder on their behalf, and it has never been owned by a business or organisation. Proof, such as the title deeds, is required to demonstrate this​​​​​​​​.

The installation must be carried out by an installer accredited by the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS).

Grant for Air Source Heat Pump

Air source heat pumps are an efficient and sustainable heating solution, playing a significant role in the Boiler Upgrade Scheme. In England, homeowners can apply for a grant of up to £7,500 to assist with the installation of an air source heat pump. This device works by extracting heat from the air outside your home to provide heating and hot water. It’s an eco-friendly alternative to traditional fossil-fuel-based heating systems.

At Paine Manwaring, we are here to help you evaluate whether an air source heat pump is the right choice for your needs. Depending on your specific requirements and property characteristics, a ground source heat pump might be more suitable. Our team of experts will guide you through the options, ensuring you make an informed decision, while taking advantage of the available grants.

Ground Source Heat Pump Grant

Ground source heat pumps are an excellent option for sustainable heating, efficiently utilising heat from the ground. In England, the Boiler Upgrade Scheme offers grants up to £7,500 for the installation of a ground source heat pump. These systems harness natural heat stored underground to provide heating and hot water for your home, offering an eco-friendly alternative to conventional heating systems.

At Paine Manwaring, our expertise extends to assessing whether a ground source heat pump is the most suitable solution for your property. We consider factors such as your site’s characteristics and heating requirements to ensure you choose the best renewable energy option. Our team will guide you through the process, helping you to make the most of the grant opportunities available.
