Why is the Boiler Upgrade Scheme Important?
The Boiler Upgrade Scheme has been put in place to encourage property owners to replace their existing fossil fuel heating system with more efficient, low carbon heating alternatives - including air and ground source heat pumps and, in some circumstances, a biomass boiler - making it a great initiative towards a greener and sustainable environment.
This is to help with reducing carbon emissions amidst the ever-growing climate crisis.
By changing how we heat homes, we’ll be supporting the Government's net-zero strategy and providing financial support to those who need it the most, enabling homeowners to upgrade their boilers without any financial burden.
Did you know that housing stock and their energy are accountable for around 16% of UK emissions? This is why the Government plans to phase out gas boilers that are powered by fossil fuels and bring in energy-efficient and low-carbon alternatives to help with the decarbonisation of homes across England and Wales.
Overall, the Boiler Upgrade Scheme is a crucial effort towards a more energy-efficient and sustainable future for all.
