Air source heat pump & grants made easy

Improving nationwide energy efficiency is a major priority for the UK government and heat pumps are in the spotlight. Recent upgrades saw the government boost air source heat pump grants for English and Welsh homeowners by 50%, increasing total potential value to £7,500. There are big savings available, however navigating the process of applying for grants, securing funding and scheduling installation poses a unique set of challenges.

For many homeowners and landlords, it can be difficult to decide which grant heat pump options to pursue. Eligibility can be hard to assess which can further complicate the process, as many grants are based on property specifics and personal circumstances. Even if grants are approved, homeowners must then take on the challenge of sourcing contractors approved by the relevant grant program.

This is where Zing Energy steps up. As an all-purpose energy efficiency company with a national presence, we’re dedicated to helping Brits leverage grant-funded solutions, including air source heating grants.

What free air source heat pump grants are available?

Clean, green and highly efficient, air source heat pumps are considered gold-standard when it comes to heating indoor spaces. In an effort to increase usage, the UK government offers a series of grants designed to offset the costs of purchasing and installing air source heat pumps. Some are specific to air source heat pumps and others cover additional energy-efficient and renewable technologies, such as insulation, solar panels and battery storage solutions.

Currently, the following grant heat pump options are available to homeowners in the UK:

  • Boiler Upgrade Scheme
  • Energy Company Obligation (ECO4) Scheme
  • Warmer Homes Scotland
  • Home Energy Scotland Scheme
  • Nest Scheme, Wales

If you meet the eligibility criteria, it’s possible to significantly offset the cost of purchasing and installing an air source heat pump. In a best-case scenario, air source heating grants may cover the entire cost. Most British homeowners are eligible for at least one grant, so it’s always worth investigating further.

Am I eligible for an air source heat pump grant?

Eligibility for government grants for heat pumps can vary depending on the type of scheme, as well as your personal situation and the unique characteristics of your property. Here are a few factors that may be assessed during the application review process:

  1. 1

    Your relationship with the property.

    For example, are you a homeowner, small landlord or private landlord?

  2. 2

    The rating of your property

    As determined by a valid Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).

  3. 3

    Whether you’re replacing an existing low-carbon heating system or an energy-intensive fossil fuel heating system

    Such as oil, gas or direct electric.

  4. 4

    If your property has an installation capacity up to 45kWth.

    Most UK properties have this, though it’s important to double check when applying for government grant air source heat pump funding.

Understanding EPC requirements

All properties built, sold or rented in the UK are issued with an Energy Performance Certificate. The certificate assigns the property an energy efficiency rating from a scale of A to G, factoring in variables like energy use, retention, costs and scope for improvements. Your rating can be important when it comes to applying for government grants for heat pumps, particularly the ECO4.

The grant exists to improve energy efficiency and reduce household carbon emissions on a national level. As well as air source heat pump upgrades, it helps offset the cost of measures such as insulation. To receive air source heat pump funding through ECO4, you’ll need to meet certain requirements. These include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Currently operating an inefficient heating system that puts your property within the D-G EPC band.
  • You own your property and live in it, or rent privately.
  • You’re currently receiving government benefits or income support, or you fall into a low-income bracket, that earns you membership to the Help to Heat Group. More details on qualifying benefits can be found on the Ofgem website. Or simply apply online with Zing Energy to check your eligibility. It’s free and only takes a matter of minutes.

Is an air source heat pump right for your home?

If you currently rely on an inefficient system to heat your home, an air source heat pump could be a worthwhile upgrade. As well as the potential save money on your energy bills, air source heat pumps offer a unique chance to reduce your carbon footprint without compromising on comfort.

Benefits of air source heat pumps:

  • Renewable and reliable: Heat pumps are designed to last for up to 20 years and are regarded as a reliable and long-lasting renewable technology. Plus, once installed, they require very little maintenance.
  • Cleaner and greener: Heat pumps are not powered by any fossil-fuel burning substances. So, if you are switching from a solid fuel burning system, you will significantly reduce your carbon emissions.
  • Reduced running costs: One of the main benefits of a government grant for a heat pump, especially if replacing an electric, LPG or oil heating system, is the reduction in energy consumption, resulting in lower energy bills. Zing Energy installs air source heat pumps which operate at 400% efficiency, converting 1kw of electricity into 4kw of heat.
  • Compatible with solar: Air source heat pumps can be integrated with a Solar PV (solar panels) system and run off the electricity produced by the panels. Adding a battery storage system will further enhance your renewable energy generation.
  • A Healthier Home: Installing an air source heat pump can help improve the indoor air quality within your home. It reduces airborne particles, pollutants and allergens, especially if switching from a solid fuel-burning system.

CAVITY WALL INSULATION GRANT FAQS

Cavity wall insulation is not suitable for all property types. If your home is made with solid walls, which don’t have a cavity, or the condition of the walls are in poor condition, including cracks in the external finish, or existing dampness, then this type of insulation may not be suitable. However, if your home was built after the 1930, there’s a good chance it will have cavity walls and will therefore be suitable. To find out more, fill in our contact form and one of our surveyors can arrange a survey at your home.

Cavity wall insulation is installed by drilling 22mm holes at intervals of approximately every 1 metre on the outside walls of your home. Insulation material is then injected into the cavity through these holes, which are then sealed up by using cement. The insulation material used is usually polystyrene bead, which provides excellent thermal benefits for your property, helping you stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

If you live in a semi-detached property, and your neighbour does not want cavity wall insulation, or their property is not suitable for the insulation, the insulation technician will insert a cavity barrier brush into the cavity wall, which helps prevent the passage of insulation beads between the attached properties. The barrier brush also prevents the movement of any debris, dirt, or even pests, providing additional benefits.

The amount of money you will save on your energy bills will depend on the type of property you live in; a large, detached property will generally save significantly more than a flat, due to the amount of walls being insulated and the size of living space. The Energy Saving Trust states that a detached property can save as much as £455 per year on energy bills, whereas a Mid-flooor flat can save up to £125. And as energy bills increase, you can expect to save even more!

Zing Energy are currently helping householders to see if they qualify for free cavity wall insulation via several energy grant schemes. These energy grants can cover the full cost of installation, carried out by our professional cavity wall insulation technicians. Currently the Government-backed Energy Companies Obligation (ECO4) scheme, which runs until 2026, is designed to help low-income households who are in receipt of benefits, gain access to energy saving grants. Contact Zing Energy today and we can help guide you through the qualifying process.

Prior to the installation of cavity wall insulation, Zing Energy will carry out an in-depth property assessment, to check the conditions of the cavities, and to see if your home has any obstructions. If any remedial works are required, including replacing corroded wall ties, removing rubble and installing cavity brushes, our installation teams will make good in preparation for the cavity wall insulation.
