Boiler Upgrade Scheme

The Boiler Upgrade Scheme (or ‘BUS’ for short) gives eligible homes a £7,500 grant to help replace their old gas or oil boiler with a clean energy heat pump.
As part of our all-inclusive plan, we’ll apply for the grant on your behalf and deduct it from your invoice when you switch. But hurry, it won’t be around for long.

To be eligible for the Boiler Upgrade Scheme, you need to...

The Boiler Upgrade Scheme is only available for properties within England or Wales. Other schemes and funding are available for properties in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

To receive the BUS grant from the government, the application must be made on behalf of the property owner. During the process Ofgem will reach out to the property owner via email to confirm that the installer has applied for the grant on behalf of the property owner.

The heating system being replaced must be a fossil fuel system, or an electric system that did not include a heat pump. Air to air and hybrid heat pumps which include a fossil fuel heating system, and gas condensing boilers are not eligible under the BUS. 

A valid EPC is less than 10 years old and has no outstanding recommendations for loft or cavity wall insulation. But don’t worry, if you need an EPC, we will sort it for you. We can also install any loft and cavity wall insulation you may need. And don’t forget, insulation currently has 0% VAT so may be cheaper than you expect.

0% VAT to pay

What’s more, clean energy home improvements, like switching to a heat pump, installing solar panels and insulating your walls and roof, are exempt from VAT until 31st March 2027.

This translates to a further 20% reduction in the cost of becoming a more energy-efficient home.

FAQs

The UK government is offering a £7,500 grant towards the cost and installation of air to water, ground source and water source heat pumps, and £5,000 to switch to a biomass boiler. It does not include air to air and hybrid heat pumps or gas condensing boilers. The grant applies to eligible households across England and Wales until 2025.  

The Scottish government has a range of funding available for home efficiency improvements, with grants or interest-free loans that combined can get you up to £15,000. The funding available in Scotland must be obtained by you the customer, but we will help you every step of the way. For more information visit Home Energy Scotland.

No. The Boiler Upgrade Scheme is a separate grant and is not affected by having received funding through other government schemes. Similarly, if you do receive the BUS grant, you can still claim other grants like the GBIS & ECO4 to help you better insulate your property.

If you have previously received funding for a heat pump or biomass boiler, you will no longer be eligible to receive funding through the Boiler Upgrade Scheme.

We'll ask some initial questions to check your home is suitable for a heat pump (70% of homes are). We will then help you claim this grant through the Boiler Upgrade Scheme and guide you through the application. We will provide all the support and information you'd need from the initial application to the day of the installation.
