Did you know that funding for heat pumps is now available from Home Energy Scotland? You can receive up to £10k of funding towards your heat pump by accessing the Home Energy Scotland loan. Now £7.5k of that is a cashback payment grant, which means you don’t have to pay any of that portion of the loan back. The remaining £2.5k is paid back by you as an interest free loan which you can pay over 5 years.
Your application is assessed on the basis of your home. The minimum requirements are that you have the 2 layers of loft insulation (270mm) in place and, where practical, you have cavity wall insulation. However, if you have solid walls or a loft conversion this does not apply. If your insulation is sufficient and your application is successful, you can draw down on the loan once your heat pump has been fitted. To do that you will require a new Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), an MCS certificate and an invoice from us proving the job has been completed.
How do you apply for your loan?
You need to call Home Energy Scotland on 0808 808 2282 to get the application. We can then help you complete your application form and give you the information you need to complete it.
If you have any questions about the funding, or you're ready to take the next step to getting a heat pump installed, you can book a 15-minute call with one of our team at a date and time that suits you.
