Low carbon heating measures provide renewable ways of heating your home. Low carbon heating can significantly reduce the amount of CO₂ your home produces and can reduce your energy bills compared to fossil fuel systems like a gas boiler. They can provide energy efficient, sustainable heating, while offering the same level of warmth as the fossil fuel systems you are probably familiar with.
Those that qualify under the Green Homes Grant voucher scheme includes Air Source Heat Pumps, Ground/Water Source Heat Pumps, Solar Thermal (liquid-filled flat plate or evacuated tube collectors) and Biomass Boilers.
Solar Thermal linked to a Thermal Store can also be used for space heating, as long as it is used for water heating.
To qualify for the voucher, the installation must be undertaken by an MCS certified Contractor using MCS certified products. They must also be TrustMark registered.
To have low-carbon heating installed, your home will need to have cavity or solid wall insulation and loft insulation (where applicable). You can have these installed as part of a package.
