Boiler Upgrade Scheme

Your Guide to the £7,500 Grant in Berkshire, South Oxfordshire, and North Hampshire

What is the Boiler Upgrade Scheme in the UK?

The Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) is a UK Government initiative launched to encourage the adoption of low-carbon heating systems among homeowners in England and Wales. The scheme forms part of the Heat and Buildings Strategy, with the goal of reducing carbon emissions from UK homes to meet the 2050 net zero targets. The scheme is scheduled to run until 2028, with a budget of £450 million.

How Does the Government Boiler Upgrade Scheme Work?

The Boiler Upgrade Scheme offers a fixed grant of £7,500 to eligible homeowners to install a new air or ground-source heat pump. 

This grant is provided directly to the heating engineer as a voucher, which is then deducted from the total installation cost. The scheme operates on a first-come, first-served basis, so early application is advisable.

Eligibility for the Boiler Upgrade Scheme (2024)

To be eligible for the Boiler Upgrade Scheme, home owners in Berkshire, South Oxfordshire, and North Hampshire must meet the following criteria. 

You must own the property you’re applying for, which can include commercial properties, your own home, or a rental property. Your property must have a valid EPC (Energy Performance Certificate), and the new air source or ground source heat pump must fully replace a fossil fuel heating system, meet the heating and hot water demands of your property and not exceed 45kW in capacity.


Applying for the Boiler Upgrade Scheme involves a straightforward process.  As an MCS Certified Installer, providing your property and quotation are eligible; we can handle the application on your behalf.  

You may be contacted by Ofgem to confirm your details and the installation. 

The scheme primarily covers low-carbon heating systems, including air source heat pumps, ground source heat pumps, and biomass boilers. These systems are more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly compared to traditional gas or oil boilers.
