Boiler Upgrade Scheme explained: every little thing to know – ‘Unfit for UK homes’ | Personal Finance | Finance



The cons sadly render installing heat pumps unrealistic for a variety of UK homes.

Mr Robinson added: “To start with, the prices are immense, and these can multiply if some parts of your existing heating system are incompatible with the warmth pump system, similar to radiators, emitters or any pipework.

“Ground source heat pump installation costs can add as much as an eye-watering £35,000, of which the Government can slash £6,000 off through the Boiler Upgrade Scheme.”

In comparison with a £2,000 hydrogen-ready boiler and even £7,000 for an air source heat pump, that is clearly out of most individuals’s reach.

Mr Robinson said: “Assuming you have got the funds, don’t expect that you simply are within the clear.

“Unfortunately, not every house is suitable for warmth pump installation. In the event you live in a flat above ground level, for instance, you obviously have nowhere to dig a hole for the bottom source heat pump.
