This is called a Free Heat Pump Grant and is worth £10K
This free cash grant ( not paid to you directly) is especially for people to upgrade their old LPG & Oil boilers / Electric Heaters for a brand new heat pump which runs on renewable energy.
The government has launched the new boiler upgrade scheme which promises to be very popular and will probably be massively oversubscribed.
Most Uk Households are always looking to improve their homes, be it with extensions, new kitchens and bathrooms etc.
Why Is The Heat Pump Grant 100%?
The government have taken the decision fully fund heat pumps in the United Kingdom to all off gas heated areas.
Rural Areas In Wales & Scotland will be given priority with 35% uplifts in funding given.

Boiler Upgrade Scheme – Non Benefits Claimants
To encourage people not on benefits to make the change to greener options now the government is offering a £6000 grant for installing heat pumps to help cover the cost.
Households could benefit massively in the long-run by getting a heat pump installed.
You could save as much as £1,975 if you swap your gas boiler for a heat pump.
What Grant Is Available For Non Benefits ?
£6,000 grant for ground-source heat pump
£5,000 for an air source one.
£5,000 for a biomass boiler, if you live in a rural area.
What Is A Heat Pump?
A heat pump works a bit like a reverse refrigerator, extracting heat from the air outside and pumping it into the home.
They are cheap to run and are though to lower your heating bills by up to 30%
What Types Of Heat Pump Are Available ?
There are 3 types of heat pumps:
- Air-to-water systems
- Air-to-air systems.
- ground source heat pumps
Air source work by taking heat out of the air and ground source take the heat from underground by pumping water through it in pipes.
How Much Are Heat Pumps To Buy and Install?
Air source pumps are the cheaper option with purchase and installation costs priced between £8,000 and £14,000.
Ground source heat pumps are usually £15,000 to £25,000, depending on the size of your home.
Gas Boilers banned
In a bid to reduce carbon emissions Gas boilers are being banned and from 2025 , no new builds will be able to use gas boilers to heat their home.
By 2035 the government hope to put in place a complete ban on all gas boilers.
It is thought that people will gradually make the switch to renewable heating over the next 10 years with gas price rises being the deciding factor.
Other Renewable Heating
Renewable energy is the new kid on the block when it comes to being a source of energy for domestic homes.
People will always need to use some sort of power to heat their homes as well as needing power to power their electric appliances etc.
With gas and electric prices subject to massive increases for 2022 ( an increase of over a third ) a more cheaper energy source is needed .
Enter renewable energy which is a cheap and natural source of energy which if harnessed properly will provide the world with all the energy it needs for years to come.
What is Renewable Energy?
Renewable energy describes energy sources that occur naturally in the world and are infinite as this energy will always replenish itself without running out.
Examples are the wind, water tides, solar energy, heat from the ground etc.
Renewable Energy has become increasingly popular over the past few years with the world movement toward a cleaner environment and cutting climate emissions to protect the ozone layer.
Renewable energy has been available for quite some time, but has become increasingly popular as a primary source of energy for many consumers.
The Benefits Of Renewable Energy
All types of renewable energy are considered to be
- environmentally friendly
- Small carbon footprint on the environment
- Cheap source of power
Types Of Renewable Energy Sources
Renewable energy is available in a variety of forms, including:
Wind Energy Wind power is generated through the use of turbines and can be found used in many countries around the world.
Turbines collect wind energy, converting it into energy that can be used to power a standard house electrical breaker or for commercial spaces.
Solar power is energy collected from the sun.
It has been effectively used for decades to provide needed energy for cooling, heating, lighting and to provide for hot water within homes.
The suns rays are captured on solar panels placed outdoors and the energy is converted into usable energy for a consumer.
It is a renewable source as we have continuous supply every day.
Hydro power is one of the oldest forms of renewable energy, generating power from the movement of water.
Water is most commonly moved through turbines such as Dams to generate energy. This source of energy is renewable as the water can be reused or returned to its natural state once the energy has been created.
Many renewable energy providers will offer a certificate to consumers demonstrating their sources of power.
Ground Source Heat Pumps
This type of renewable energy is derived from the Earth’s natural heat, often given off as heat or steam. This heat can be used to create other forms of energy and the Earth continues to generate heat as well as rainfalls replenish the original steam sources
Biomass energy is produced from organic materials most commonly found within plants and animals with the original source of energy from the sun. Plants and animals absorb the energy from the sun and then pass it on to the next living organism that consumes it. The most common forms of biomass energy come from burning wood, plant crops, manure and some garbage.
Renewable Energy Is The Future !
