Boiler Upgrade Scheme

Through the Boiler Upgrade Scheme, you could get a grant to cover part of the cost of replacing fossil fuel heating systems with a heat pump or biomass boiler. Fossil fuel heating systems include oil, gas or electric.

This scheme is perfect for households looking to reduce their environmental impact as well as save money on bills in the long term. By upgrading an old boiler, householders can make significant savings on fuel bills while also lowering their carbon emissions; this leads to both financial and environmental benefits that wouldn’t otherwise be possible without taking advantage of this scheme.

There is a wide range of different options available that cater for all budgets which makes the process incredibly accessible for most people who want to take part.

What You Can Get

Individuals are eligible for a single grant per property, which can be used to obtain financial assistance towards installing the following systems:

  • £5,000 for an air source heat pump
  • £6,000 for a ground source heat pump (including water source heat pumps and those on shared ground loops)
  • £5,000 for a biomass boiler.

However, you cannot receive a grant for a hybrid heat pump system, such as a combination of a gas boiler and an air source heat pump.

It is important to note that the system you install must meet specific standards, including minimum efficiency levels, which your installer can inform you about.

Moreover, the maximum capacity of the system must be less than 45kWth, as anything exceeding this amount is not eligible for the grant.
