Air Source Heat Pumps - Boiler Upgrade Scheme [BUS]
The Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) supports the decarbonisation of heat in buildings. The government is providing grants to encourage property owners to install low carbon heating systems such as heat pumps, through the Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS). These grants can help property owners overcome the upfront cost of low carbon heating technologies.
The grant for a new air source heat pump installation will be £5,000.00.
The BUS scheme launched on the 1st april 2022 and will run until 31st March 2025. Applications for homeowners opened on 23rd May for air source heat pumps installed on or after 1st April 2022. The scheme will run for the next 3 years with a total of 90,000 vouchers. There will be 30,000 vouchers available each year. Each voucher will be valid for 3 months with no exceptions or extensions. The scheme will be installer led with the company applying for the voucher and redeeming it once the install is complete.
From 1 April 2022 to 31 March 2027, there is 0% VAT on the installation of energy-saving materials including air source heat pumps.
The scheme will cover single domestic dwellings and small non-domestic properties in England and Wales. The scheme will be open to homeowners, private landlords and self-builders. It will not be open to social housing, new build properties other than self-build or properties that already have an air source heat pump installed.
