Heat Pump Funding

The Scottish Government funded Home Energy Scotland Grant and Loan scheme is designed to support the installation of heat pumps and energy efficiency upgrades for homeowners across Scotland. Air Source and Ground Source Heat Pumps are a key priority of this scheme, as of all energy efficiency measures available, heat pumps maximise decarbonisation and the reduction of energy usage.

heat pump funding:

  • Homeowners can benefit from a grant of £7,500 to support the install of new heat pumps.
  • For rural homeowners, grant funding is increased to £9,000 if the household qualifies for the rural uplift.
  • The remainder of funding, up to an additional £7,500, can be taken up as an optional interest-free loan with Home Energy Scotland.

Easy Heat Systems offer a wide range of energy efficiency upgrades that can accompany the installation of heat pumps to provide a comprehensive energy upgrade package that will significantly reduce your energy costs and carbon output.
