Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS)
The Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) will pay a £5,000 grant to help property owners in England and Wales install a low carbon heating system.
The Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS)
The Boiler Upgrade Scheme is one of the ways the UK Government is hoping to meet the net-zero emissions target by 2050. The scheme will support the installation of Heat Pumps in England and Wales only.
The new BUS scheme replaces the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) which had ended as of 31 March 2022.
The Government is providing grants towards the cost of buying an air source heat pump, and eligible homeowners will get £5,000 off the price of installing one.
This makes it easier for you to reduce your carbon output and enjoy the savings of a heat pump in a quicker time.
Who will qualify for the Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS)?
The BUS scheme will have a budget of £450 million over 3 years, running until March 2025 and will provide grants of:
- £5,000 towards the costs of air source heat pumps and biomass boilers
- £6,000 towards ground source heat pumps.
The remaining cost of the installation is to be paid by customers.
To be eligible for the Boiler Upgrade Scheme, you will need to meet a few simple requirements:
- You must be a homeowner
- Your property must be in England or Wales
- The building must have a valid Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) issued within the last 10 years. Don’t worry if you don’t have this. We’ll be happy to arrange a new EPC.
How to apply for the Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS)?
Up to 90,000 homes and buildings across England and Wales can apply for the scheme. The vouchers are on a first come, first served, so get in touch today to find out more.
Vouchers will expire after 3 months for ASHPs and biomass boilers, and 6 months for GSHPs.
If the voucher can’t be redeemed within the time frame, it can be reapplied for.
