Heat pump grant boosted by 50% to improve slow take-up across England and Wales

The government is increasing its air source heat pump grants for homeowners in England and Wales by 50% to £7,500 from Monday amid criticism about slow adoption of the low-carbon technology. The £2,500 in extra support – on top of £5,000 offered – aims to take the cost of installing an air source heat pump below that of the average gas boiler. Support for installing ground source heat pumps – which are not suitable for most homes in the UK as they require access to a large outdoor space – will increase from £6,000 to £7,500. The rise, which was announced by the prime minister, Rishi Sunak, last month alongside the watering down of a planned ban on new gas boilers by 2035, comes after the government faced criticism from the National Infrastructure Commission (NIC) on its home heating policies https://www.theguardian.com/business/2023/oct/23/heat-pump-grant-boosted-by-50-to-improve-slow-take-up-across-england-and-wales

      Must be some misunderstanding. This should be a Climate Love 💚 and not a warning ⚠️

        This sounds more like a Climate love than a Climate warning to me.
