As announced in April 2022, the government is offering as part of it's 'BUS' (Boiler Upgrade Scheme) an incentive of £5000.00 (totally free) per installation. The scheme has £450 million of funding to give away, so now is the time to claim your £5000.00 towards an air source heat pump and assist you with rising energy costs.
Air source heat pumps are a clever renewable energy solution that absorb heat from the outside air to provide your home with heating and hot water. If you want to generate your own heat, save money on your energy bills and make your home all-around more energy-efficient, then an air source heat pump is an ideal choice.
Heat pumps are an effective and energy efficient way to produce hot water to heat your home. The air source heat pump absorbs heat from the outside air into a liquid refrigerant at a low temperature. Using electricity, the pump compresses the liquid to increase its temperature. It then condenses back into a liquid to release its stored heat. Heat is then sent to your radiators or underfloor heating.
Solar panels can have a positive impact not only on the environment, but also your pocket. Generating your own electricity by utilising the sun is an extremely green option when compared to some of the national grid power sources. It will also save you money on your energy bills by using your own power. Additionally you could receive income from the electricity you generate by selling it back to the grid.
