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 £8,000 – £16,000, so the grant will only partly cover the cost of installation.
