    Air source heat pump grants and financial support

    Applications for government incentives that lower the cost of installing an air-source heat pump are open to England, Scotland, and Wales residents. Depending on where you live, different grants have different sizes.

    Grants of up to £5,000 are available in England and Wales, and grants of up to £7,500 or £9,000 are available for some regions of Scotland.

    Air source heat pump grants in England, Scotland, and Wales:

    You can apply for a £5,000 grant through the Boiler Upgrade Scheme if you reside in England or Wales to help offset the cost of installing an air-source heat pump. The programme covers heat pump installations completed by the end of March 2028.

    If you reside in Scotland, you can apply for an air source heat pump grant from Home Energy Scotland. It provides payments of £7,500 for installing an air source heat pump, which rises to £9,000 for persons who qualify for the rural uplift and live in remote areas. You can also qualify for an interest-free loan up to £7,500 in Scotland to pay for the last heat pump installation costs. It indicates that the majority of Scottish households are eligible for financial aid.

    Who is eligible for an air-source heat pump grant?

    The Home Energy Scotland loans and subsidies are neither means-tested nor the boiler upgrade programmes for England and Wales.

    You may be eligible for an air-source heat pump grant if:

    • You are the building owner where the heat pump would be put, whether in your house, a vacation rental, or a small business space.
    • You employ a microgeneration certification scheme (MCS)-an accredited installer of air source heat pumps.
    • You are not changing a heat pump or an older renewable energy system.
    • Your home has a current Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) showing no unfulfilled loft or cavity wall insulation recommendations.
    • Replacing an outdated electric or fossil fuel heating system with a greener heating system, like an air-source heat pump.

    This is part of the UK government’s ECO4 scheme and commitment to reaching its Net Zero targets. Improving the energy efficiency of homes across the country will reduce energy consumption.

    AIR SOURCE HEAT PUMPS/THE BOILER UPGRADE SCHEME

    Government funding of up to £5,000 for air source heat pumps Please be aware that funds cannot be used to upgrade already-installed systems.

    Air source heat pumps are renewable energy technology that uses the heat from the outside air to heat the house, even in very cold weather. Air-source heat pumps come in two different varieties.

     

    • Water heated via air-to-water systems is distributed throughout the house using radiators or an underfloor heating system. They can also be used to warm water that is stored for use in the kitchen or bathroom.
    • Since they cannot heat water, air-to-air systems often use fans to move heated air throughout the house.

     

    The installation expenses may be partially or completely recovered with government grants offered through the Boiler Upgrade Scheme, subject to survey. For the purchase and installation of new installations, grants up to £5,000 are available. Grants cannot be used to upgrade already-installed systems.

    How do they work?

    Heat pumps use a variety of technological components, including a heat exchanger, a compressor, and an evaporator coil filled with refrigerant fluid, to collect the heat from the outside air and release it into air or water circulated in the house. Even when it is quite cold outside, they can still perform this. Fridges operate similarly but in the opposite direction. The area behind refrigerators feels warm because they employ the same technique to extract heat from the air within the refrigerator.

    What Environments Are Ideal for Air Source Heat Pumps?

     

    To get the most out of an air-source heat pump, it is ideal to have well-insulated, airtight housing. Heat pumps work best in homes that quickly warm up and retain strong heat. Please be aware that only some homes are good candidates for air-source heat pumps. Before installation, a competent assessor must do a technical survey because improper home insulation could increase energy costs.

     

    The Boiler Upgrade Scheme

    In England and Wales, a payment scheme called the Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) is in place to help with the expense of producing heat from low-carbon sources.

    The boiler upgrade programme aims to financially entice people to switch from heating their homes (and small commercial buildings) with fossil fuels to considerably more environmentally friendly technologies like air-source heat pumps. Grants are only available for new installations; you cannot apply for a grant to upgrade or replace an existing air source heat pump installation.

    Who’s eligible for the scheme?

    The incentive will be available to all homeowners, small landlords, and private landlords.

     

    However, all applications must have a current Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) with no outstanding loft or cavity wall insulation recommendations. Typically, this EPC was given within the last 10 years.

    There are also a few guidelines for the installation of the heat pump. To begin with, homeowners are not eligible for a grant for a hybrid heat pump system (such as one that combines an air-source heat pump with a gas boiler).

    Additionally, the system you install must adhere to requirements like minimum efficiency levels (your installer can advise you on this).

     

    Additionally, the maximum capacity of the heat pump system must be at least 45 kWh; anything higher would disqualify you from receiving the award.

    To qualify for the Boiler Upgrade Scheme subsidy, homeowners must switch to a heat pump from fossil fuel heating systems, such as oil, gas, or electric.

    Are certain properties prohibited from utilising the grant?

    Several properties in England and Wales will not be eligible for the subsidy, despite the boiler upgrade scheme being open to both household and non-domestic properties.

    Except for self-made homes that were “primarily built using the labour or resources of the first owner” or that were never held by a company or body, the government declares that new-build residences are not eligible for the programme.

    Additionally, social housing and buildings that already have a heat pump or biomass boiler installed through a government-funded or Energy Company Obligation (ECO) programme are not eligible for the boiler upgrade programme.

    The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) for the types of properties that qualify for the programme must have been given within the previous ten years and must not have any suggestions for loft or cavity wall insulation.

    FAQ's

    Are air-source heat pumps noisy?

    The external fan produces some noise, but it is not much different from the noise produced by a refrigerator or freezer. Any noise will not be audible inside the building if it has double glazing. Because they don’t have to work as hard to pull in the hot air during the warmer months, ASHPs operate much more quietly.

    What are the different types of air-source heat pumps?

    ‘Air-to-air’ and ‘air-to-water’ are the two primary categories of air-source heat pumps. In the UK, ‘air-to-water’ air source heat pump installations predominate, supplying hot water and heating through the radiators and pipes. Heat pumps that transport heat from one house area to another do not provide hot water.

    How long should an air-source heat pump be expected to last?

    An air source heat pump system should last around 20 years with good maintenance; however, some ASHPs can last up to 25 years.

    What sort of funding help is available for air source heat pump installations?

    Air source heat pump installation costs can range from about £7,000 to $13,000, depending on the size of the home. Starting in April 2022, up to £5,000 in funding will be available to cover a sizable percentage of the expense. Furthermore, some financing for disadvantaged households might also be offered under ECO4, so receiving financial support from both sources might be feasible.
