Clean Heat Grant
New Boiler Upgrade Scheme
The Boiler Upgrade Scheme is a government-proposed scheme to deliver grants of up to £5,000 to leave your polluting boilers behind and install a greener and more cost-effective heating solution instead!
What is the Clean Heat Grant?
The Clean Heat Grant (CHG) is different from the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), the Smart Export Guarantee, and even the now-defunct Feed-in Tariff.
All of these schemes were designed to give homeowners money when their renewable systems created energy, in order to reduce their running costs.
Instead, the CHG reduces the barrier to entry for households that would otherwise struggle to afford an eco-friendly system like the air source heat pump.
By supporting consumers through the scheme, the government aims to address the barrier of upfront costs of low-carbon technologies, to help the UK meet its 2050 net-zero emissions target. The scheme will provide targeted support following the RHI which closes in March 2022.

Who is the Boiler Upgrade Scheme for?
Almost anyone who owns a home with a gas boiler should be able to apply for a Clean Heat Grant.
The Boiler Upgrade Scheme is intended for households and small non-domestic buildings across the UK. The flat-rate grant has been proposed to help with the upfront cost of installing heat pumps to deliver space heating and hot water.
The government has proposed that households must meet the following criteria to qualify for the grant:
You must have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) that’s less than 10 years old. If yours is older, you can obtain one for around £90
The EPC must not recommend that the owner installs loft and/or cavity wall insulation
