What is the Boiler Upgrade Scheme?

The Boiler Upgrade Scheme is a government initiative to promote energy efficiency – and so to reduce carbon emissions. It aims to encourage owners of homes and small non-domestic buildings in England and Wales to upgrade their old, inefficient boilers. The scheme provides capital grants of up to £7500 towards the cost of replacing fossil fuel heating with more efficient, low carbon heating systems such as heat pumps and biomass boilers.

 £7,500 Government Incentive

Limited availability of a £7,500 incentive towards your renewable energy project.

VAT-Free Installation

Benefit from VAT-free installation, including items such as radiators, insulation, and underfloor heating, making your investment even more cost-effective.

Why do I need to change my boiler?

Older gas and oil boilers consume more fuel and produce higher levels of greenhouse gas emissions, compared to low carbon systems such as air source heat pumps.

Eligibility criteria

There are some eligibility criteria for the scheme; see the government’s website for details. We are happy to advise about this. Homeowners may need to select boilers that meet specific energy efficiency standards. These standards ensure that the new boilers will significantly reduce energy consumption and contribute to a greener environment.

Professional installation

You will be required to have your new system installed by a certified professional such as Top Plumb to ensure proper installation and optimal performance.

Application process

You will need to apply for the grant through the government’s application process, but Top Plumb can assist with this. The process will involve providing information about their current heating system, property details, and other relevant documentation.
