The Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) was launched in April 2022 and is administered by the energy regulator OFGEM. The BUS scheme is part of a wide range of decarbonising and energy-saving plans by the UK government. It is hoped the scheme will allow up to 90000 homes in England and Wales to install low-carbon heat technology and reduce carbon emissions.
It is available to homes in England and Wales and provides a financial grant that can be used against the cost of installing a heat pump or biomass boiler to replace a fossil fuel heating system.

Visit the showroom website here to learn more and arrange a visit.
