4. Receive Renewable Heat Incentive Payments

This is a system created by the UK Government to help out financially with your heat pump as you have made the choice to have a cleaner, greener energy source. With RHI payments you can receive estimated payments of up to £1.5k per year for an air source pump.

Recently, this incentive has increased its payments to 30% and shall remain this way for the next 5 years, making it a prime time to invest in your air source heat pump. Further to this, you could also request a Home Energy Scotland loan which could cover up to 100% of your installation costs. It is an interest-free loan in which you can claim up to £10,000 to pay back over the course of 12 years.
