Ben Hodges, Business Development Director here at Abode Heat, was involved in consultations with the energy regulator Ofgem; discussing proposals for the Boiler Upgrade Scheme. We’re pleased to provide the following scheme highlights.
Boiler Upgrade Scheme key facts
As part of the government’s Heat and Buildings strategy, the Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) provides upfront grants of £5,000 for air source, and £6,000 for ground source heat pumps when replacing an existing fossil fuel boiler or direct electric heating system with an MCS accredited installer.
The scheme launched on May 23rd 2022 however, installations commissioned from 1st April 2022 will be eligible to apply.
These one-off grant payments are available to homeowners, private landlords and custom builders.
Homes with solid uninsulated walls will qualify. Cavity walls and lofts must be insulated and evidenced via your Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) before the installation can be completed.

When we have received your order, Abode Heat will submit the voucher application on your behalf and once approved will complete the installation.
