Renewable Heat Incentive scheme
Air Source Heat Pump technology
Under the UK Government’s domestic Renewable Heat Incentive scheme (RHI), you can receive quarterly payments over seven years if you install an eligible Renewable Heating technology.
What is the RHI?
The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a UK Government scheme set up to encourage the uptake of renewable heat technologies amongst householders, communities and businesses through financial incentives. It is the first of its kind in the world and the UK Government expects the RHI to contribute towards the 2020 ambition of 12% of heating coming from renewable sources.
How much will I receive?
RHI payments are paid into your bank account quarterly over seven years. The amount you receive will depend on a number of factors - including the equipment you choose to have installed and the heat demand of your property. Typically the payments will cover between 60-90% of the installation cost.
What are Air Source Heat Pumps?
Air Source Heat Pump systems are designed to replace old boiler systems, providing the heating in your home. The heat pump works in reverse to a typical Air Conditioning system by drawing the heat from the outside and transferring it inside.
The main benefit of using these systems is that they are much more energy efficient than standard heating units, therefore greatly reducing monthly utility bills.
These systems are also much better for the environment, generating less CO2 emissions.
