Types of Low Carbon Systems

Whilst there are many types of low carbon heating systems available, it is reported that the Boiler Upgrade Scheme will only offer financial support to install either an Air Source Heat Pump, Ground Source Heat Pump or Biomass installation. It is worth noting that the average cost of a ASHP is around £8000 – £1000, so the grant will only partly cover the cost of installation. For more information about the low carbon heating systems included in the scheme, please use the links below.

What Is The Cost of An Air Source Heat Pump Installation?

The cost of installing an ASHP really does depend on a number of factors including the size of your property, type of system and additional work required (underfloor heating ect)

A good quality installation will costs from £5000. This would typically include:

  • A bespoke design, tailored to the property
  • Installation schematics
  • Lifetime technical support
  • MCS support to successfully apply for the RHI (if applicable)
  • The ASHP, domestic hot water cylinder, buffer tank, circulation pumps and all of the connecting brassware for the components

It looks a bit like an air conditioning unit, but sits on the floor outside your house.

Yes, quite possibly. Please bear in mind that for the best energy efficiency you may need to consider upgrading your home’s insulation. Our retrofit co-ordinator would be able to advise you on the best solutions for your property.
