Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS)

What is the Boiler Upgrade Scheme?

The Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS), previously named the Clean Heat Grant is the new Government incentive aimed to help fund the transition from fossil fuel heating to low carbon alternatives, such as Air Source Heat Pumps. It is a £5,000 upfront payment in the form of a voucher and is available across England and Wales.

The Boiler Upgrade Scheme will open to applications on the 23rd May 2022 however any systems that have been installed and are commissioned on or after the 1st April 2022 may still be eligible to apply retrospectively. The scheme will run until 2025 however the budget set by the Government will be closely monitored.

For Air Source Heat Pump installations the vouchers will be valid for three months. All properties must have a valid Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) dated within 10 years to be eligible and if there are any recommended measures for cavity wall or loft insulation then these works must be completed.

The scheme will be administered by Ofgem who have implemented a number of other measures and strict criteria to be eligible. Further details will be confirmed by them at a later date.
