The government is providing grants to encourage property owners to install low carbon heating systems such as heat pumps, through the Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS). These grants can help property owners overcome the upfront cost of low carbon heating technologies.

The scheme is open to domestic and small non-domestic properties in England and Wales. It runs from 2022 to 2025.

You can get:

  • £5,000 off the cost and installation of an air source heat pump
  • £5,000 off the cost and installation of a biomass boiler
  • £6,000 off the cost and installation of a ground source heat pump

You may be eligible if you:

  • live in England or Wales
  • own your property (whether this is a home or a small non-domestic property)

Private landlords and second-home owners are eligible.

If you’re claiming other grants or funding

You can still apply if you’ve received separate funding for energy efficiency upgrades such as insulation, doors or windows.

Property eligibility

The scheme is open to domestic and small non-domestic properties with:

  • an installation capacity up to 45kWth (this covers most homes)
  • a current energy performance certificate (EPC), with no outstanding recommendations for loft or cavity wall insulation

Check your EPC report.

Find out what to do if your property has recommendations for loft or cavity wall insulation.

Excluded properties

Grants are not available for:

  • social housing
  • new build properties (apart from certain self-builds)
  • properties that have already had government funding or support for a heat pump or biomass boiler

Your installer will apply for the grant on your behalf. The value of the grant will be discounted off the price you pay.
