The Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) is a government scheme to help reduce our carbon emissions. It's available to homes and businesses in England and Wales upgrading from fossil fuel or electric heating systems to a renewable system, such as heat or ground source pumps, or even bio mass boilers - if they are off the gas grid.
If you've already received assistance through the Renewable Heat Incentive or other government grants, you may not be able to apply. There'll be a requirement that properties don't t have any recommendations on their EPC for loft or cavity wall insulation to be installed. There are some limited circumstances where this requirement doesn't apply. Your approved installer will be able to give you more information.
Grants are offered at a flat rate of £5,000 for air source heat pumps and £6,000 for ground source heat pumps and won't fluctuate on the capacity of the system. Where the grant doesn't cover the full installation cost, you'll need to pay the balance. Finance may be available to help spread the costs.
