The Boiler Upgrade Scheme

The Boiler Upgrade Scheme is a new government grant incentive to encourage homeowners and business owners to replace their old fossil fuel boiler with a low carbon option, such as a heat pump. 

The Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) has been ongoing since April 2022 and has already issued 17,000 vouchers

After the 23rd of October 2023, any new BUS application will receive the increased amount of £7,500 for Air Source and Ground Source Heat Pump installations (£5,000 for Biomass Boilers).

So Who is Eligible?

Unfortunately, the Boiler Upgrade Scheme is not applicable for everyone, so lets see who can benefit. 
  • The scheme will only cover properties in England and Wales with an alternative scheme offered in Scotland
  • The grant is available for all domestic and commercial (non-domestic) buildings.
  • Grants will only be offered to properties that are replacing their old fossil fuel boilers with low carbon heating system, like an ASHP or GSHP. 
  • Much like previous energy schemes, the property is required to have basic energy efficiency measures, E.g. minimum of 270mm loft insulation, and if you have cavity walls, they need to be filled. 
  • New builds and social housing will not be eligible for support under this scheme, with the exception of domestic custom builds. 
  • In order to be eligible for the BUS, the new low carbon heating system will have to supply all of the heating and hot water, therefore hybrid and partial heating system will not be eligible.

We were very impressed with the guys who installed our solar panels, batteries and ASHP. They were all very efficient, polite and helpful.

Mr Leach

Thanks for everyone at EnergyZone for all your hard work to make the installation of our solar PV system so straightforward.

Mr Robertson

Nothing too much trouble. Can't fault the service received.

Mr Hall

Excellent job.

Mrs Thompson

All the staff were friendly, well informed, helpful and customer-focused. In a fast moving market it is refreshing to find a company driven by finding the right technical solution rather than just making a quick sale. Thank you.

Mr Davies

Excellent company with great service throughout the install and commissioning.

Mr Greaves

The house is more evenly warm than when on gas heating. Even during coldest weather, we find no need to supplement the heating.

Mr Cooke

I think we are extremely lucky to have Energy Zone in Cleobury. Hope you all have a lovely Christmas and that Energy Zone goes from strength to strength in 2022.

Ms Bland

Cannot recommend Energy Zone high enough for their installation, products and superb customer car. I believe that we in South Shropshire are extremely fortunate to have this company on our doorstep.


I take this opportunity to congratulate all your engineers who delivered and installed our system- great ambassadors for your company.
