Andrew Middleton, Managing Director of Scottish Gas Net Zero
Scottish Gas has announced it will be offering the lowest priced heat pump installations to help more of its customers to lower their emissions. Scottish Gas will start prices £499 per install but will match anything lower offered by another company for a MCS credited install.
Heat pumps will play an essential part in the UK achieving its Net Zero goals by 2050 and Scottish Gas has been leading the market with over 2,300 heat pumps installed to date.
Scottish Gas hopes this offer will help more people make the switch and lower their emissions. The company’s Net Zero Index released at the end of 2022 showed that there is more uncertainty about low carbon heating compared to other energy efficiency products like insulation and solar panels. When homeowners were asked what they would replace their existing boiler with, 37% said a similar gas or oil-fired boiler and only 14% said they’d choose a heat pump.
Heat pump technology is widely recognised as the best immediate option for millions of off-grid, well-insulated homes, and is critical to keeping the UK on track to achieve net zero by 2050. Heat pumps are 350% efficient compared to the best boilers being 90-95%.
Andrew Middleton, Managing Director of Scottish Gas Net Zero says:
“With the new £7,500 grant the Scottish Government have demonstrated their strong commitment to supporting households move to low carbon heating. Scottish Gas is just as committed to helping Scotland realise its Net Zero ambitions which is why we are proud to be offering the best priced heat pumps in the market, installed by the most experienced heating engineers.
“Having installed over 2,300 heat pumps already, we have plenty of experience about what the process involves – from exploring whether your home is ready for a heat pump, to navigating the grant system – which is why we’re also launching our new Heat Pump Heroes service. Our dedicated team of experts are on hand to help customers every step of the way, helping remove another barrier to adoption for our Scottish customers.”
The price includes the generous £7,500 Scottish Government grant through Home Energy Scotland. The offer applies to a standard air source heat pump up to 7Kw and a standard cylinder with a capacity up to 200L, along with mechanical and electrical installation. Scottish Gas will further support customers by offering five years warranty after installation.
