The Boiler Upgrade Scheme
What is the Boiler Upgrade Scheme?
The boiler upgrade scheme launched in April 2022, with a backing of £450m from the government. The aim is to provide grants of up to £7,500 to homeowners interested in the move towards low-carbon heating sources.
By offering this grant, the aim is to reduce the barrier to entry for most households - this ensures that a heat pump installation should be a comparable price to a new boiler. The scheme will run until April 2028 at which point a new initiative will most likely take its place. To learn more, read our article on the boiler upgrade scheme here.

I have used Warmaway for a number of jobs (installing boilers, underfloor heating, refitting a bathroom and various maintenance items) over a few years and they are always professional, reliable and very committed to completing to a high standard - highly recommended
New boiler installed and removal of old one and Mains 7 water heater. Work was completed in less than 2 days, the engineers were really friendly, courteous and clean. They explained what they were doing as they went along and installed a new Nest thermostat. They helped me install the app onto my phone and then paired it to the thermostat for me. I would definitely recommend them and use again. Excellent service.
Warmaway installed an Air Source Heat Pump and several new radiators for us in February 2021. Everything about the process was professional courteous and efficient. The quote was clear and competitive and everything was explained about the system and the installation. We were kept informed at every stage and knew when to expect the team to come and work. All the team on site were extremely polite, tidy and hardworking. We had a courtesy follow-up visit just to check we were happy with the system and tweak any settings. I recommend Warmaway to anyone who enquires about our new ASHP.
A fantastic service from start to finish. No nonsense advice, turned up when they said they would, cleaned up after themselves and were thoroughly nice people. We had a ground-source heat pump installed with some extra radiators inside. Any snags were fixed very quickly and cheerfully. Ongoing advice by phone or email is never too much trouble. I can't reccommend them highly enough and have encouraged several of my friends to use them - which they have with great results. Please can we have more companies like Warmaway in the world?
