MCS comments on latest Boiler Upgrade Scheme figures

The Government has released up-to-date details on the uptake of the Boiler Upgrade Scheme. The scheme, which opened in May 2022, is designed to provide an incentive to shift to low carbon heating technologies such as Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHPs). A grant of £7,500 is available for ASHP and Ground Source Heat Pump installations.

Responding to the latest statistics, Ian Rippin, CEO at MCS (pictured) said: “The latest government figures show that applications to the Boiler Upgrade Scheme are up 75% on February 2023. This highlights that more people are looking to low carbon heating sources for their home. MCS data backs this – we’ve just seen the highest performing February for heat pumps in scheme history with 4,280 installations.

The Boiler Upgrade Scheme remains a vital part of making home-grown energy more affordable and accessible and today’s figures highlights that people are continuing to take advantage of government grants to make that switch to greener and cleaner energy.”
