What is the Boiler Upgrade Scheme?
The Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS for short) is a government grant created to help decarbonise domestic heating in the UK in our efforts to reach “net zero” and at the same time decrease energy bills. The grant helps homeowners afford to make the eco-friendly switch from a fossil fuel or oil boiler to a low-carbon heat pump which is 400% more energy efficient and decreases CO2 emissions with 75%.
Types of Heat Pumps
Switching to a heat pump can make some significant improvements to your home, from reduced energy bills to fewer carbon emissions produced. Heat pumps are the way forward when it comes to a greener home.
If you’re thinking of making the switch but aren’t sure which type of heat pump will suit your home and needs best, keep reading as we’ll explore the most popular heat pump types and their benefits.
When To Replace a Boiler?

How Much Does an Air To Water Heat Pump Cost
Your home needs to be heated, preferably with a low-carbon heating system that’s just as reliable as a gas boiler, without the costly energy bills. Air-to-water heat pumps tick every box by using the free air from outside to heat your water and keep your home toasty. But how much do they cost? Read on for a full heat pump installation cost breakdown.
What is an Air to Water Heat Pump & How Does it Work?
Every home has different energy needs. An air-to-water heat pump can provide an efficient heating and cooling solution for your household, regardless of size or climate. By using the power of the air to create energy to heat your home and water, air-to-water heat pumps will help reduce your bills and carbon emissions.

Heat pumps have burst into the spotlight in recent years, and for good reason – they’re energy-efficient, money-saving, and are a more eco-friendly alternative to gas central heating. Whether you’ve never heard of heat pumps or you’re aware and been asking ‘How do heat pumps work?’, read on to learn more about the future of home heating.
Are heat pumps the silver bullet to solve Europe’s energy crisis?
The energy crisis demands urgent action to decarbonise every aspect of modern life. Disruptions to energy prices and trade flows have sent ripple effects throughout our industry. The environmental impact of Europe’s reliance on fossil fuels is turning disruption into chaos, as our summers become increasingly punctuated by floods and forest fires.
Are heat pumps the solution to Europe’s gas boiler problem?
I have been deeply immersed in the world of heat pumps over the past year – and through this journey, I have come to realise the enormous impact of residential heating on the environment. Part of the problem is the lack of awareness among the public about the steps they can take to make a difference. When we think about reducing our carbon footprint, electric cars are often one of the first solutions that spring to mind.
