Get £5,000 Off An Air Source Heat Pump This Spring
On March 23rd 2022 Rishi Sunak announced his Spring Statement updating the nation on the overall state of the economy and any big changes that will be coming into effect. In what may be the best time to invest in domestic energy efficient materials, The Chancellor stated that VAT will be scrapped (5% to 0) for installations of Air Source Heat Pumps, Solar Panels and Insulation starting this Spring.
As an official MSC Certified Installer of Air Source Heat Pumps ourselves, Guscott Heating Services have already helped households take advantage of the RHI (Renewable Heating Incentive). Although still taking applications until March 31st 2022, The new process homeowners must now go through is called The Boiler Upgrade Scheme meaning £5,000 off the cost and installation of an Air Source Heat Pump.
Being known to lower energy bills and being a much greener solution to heating your home, the scheme officially opens for grant applications and payments as of May this year.
How Do Air Source Heat Pumps Work?
Being more technically known as air-to-water heat pumps, they simply take in heat from the outside air before using this very same energy to heat the water that will be transferred around your home and into your radiators, hot water cylinders and underfloor heating if you have it.
The Government’s Vision
Being announced in the run up to COP26, the Government’s Net Zero strategy remains hopeful for no new gas boiler in homes after 2035. You may have heard about no gas boilers by 2025 and what may sound confusing, the actual target seems to be for no gas boilers to be SOLD by 2025.
We think it’s safe to say that it remains a huge task, but we 100% and wholeheartedly admire the efforts made by our Government to ensure we reduce our carbon footprint for the sake of our planet.

What Do We Recommend?
If it’s possible to literally reduce our regular outgoings as well as our carbon footprint, the answer will always be a no-brainer! Of Course households should save themselves £5,000 when considering a new heating system for their homes.
With that said we do recommend anyone looking to upgrade to an Air Source Heat Pump, should also consider loft insulation to keep their homes warmer for longer for cheaper!
“warmer for longer for cheaper!”

We recommend you get quotes from more than one installer to make sure you’re getting the best value for money.
- You find an MSC certified installer that is able to carry out the work. (The MCS quality assurance scheme ensures that installers are competent, and the products they use meet the correct standards.)
