Application for the Boiler Upgrade Scheme grant is available only to MCS (Microgeneration Certification Scheme) accredited heat pump installers and is conducted through Ofgem, the Government’s scheme administrator.
If you believe you are eligible for the scheme, contact your local Vaillant MCS accredited installer. From here, the process will be as such:
Your installer will then further advise you on whether your proposed installation is eligible for a grant.
Your installer will then send you a quote for the installation which should include the deduction for the BUS grant.
Your installer will then provide your details to Ofgem, who will then contact you (via email) to confirm that you give consent for the installer to apply on your behalf.
Your installation will then be carried out and completed in line with both the industry standard and the requirements of the Boiler Upgrade Scheme.
The installer will then redeem the grant voucher and receive the grant following the full installation and commissioning. This voucher must be redeemed 3 months of the issue date for an air source heat pump or biomass boiler, and within 6 months of the issue date or 31st March 2028 (whichever is earlier) for a ground source heat pump.
