Heating our homes and workplaces with low carbon heat is one of the best things we can do to help combat climate change. Currently, heating all the buildings in the UK produces almost a quarter of the UK’s carbon emissions.
The Boiler Upgrade Scheme has £450m funding confirmed over the next three years, which will provide grants to encourage property owners to replace existing fossil fuel heating with more efficient, low carbon heating systems including air source heat pumps, ground source heat pumps and, in limited circumstances, biomass boilers. Heating systems can be commissioned any time from 1 April 2022, and applications for grants opens from 23 May 2022.
Grants will reduce the upfront cost of installing a low carbon heating system with
- £5,000 is available towards air source heat pumps and biomass boilers
- £6,000 is available towards ground source heat pumps
To work in conjunction with the upgrade scheme, ensure you have a cylinder that not only works with the heat source, but can also maximise the benefits of the renewable energy. With THERMflow thermal stores being the perfect partner for biomass boilers, providing both heating and hot water to the property. Our ECOflow unvented heat pump range not only provides hot water, but with tank on tank models, also become an essential component in the properties heating design.
