THE GOVERNMENT FURTHER INCENTIVISES ADOPTION OF HEAT PUMP BASED HEATING PRODUCTS FROM APRIL 1 2017 WITH RHI PAYMENT INCREASE

From April 1 2017, an increase of 33% in the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payment scheme for Air Source Heat Pumps has been announced by the governement. This follows a period of consultation and review, with the announcenent underlining the government’s strategy for greater energy security and reduction in CO² emissions for the UK.

First introduced in April 2014, the RHI has driven sales of Heat Pumps, Solar Thermal and Biomass based heating products. IBD Distribution sees this new increase in tariffs as a significant opportunity for homeowners to move away from traditional fossil fuel based boilers to renewables, or a combination of both through Hybrid Systems.

 

“The benefits are greater stability in energy costs and more reliable heating systems. Supported by the increase in the RHI payments, homeowners should see greater benefit in replacing their old boilers with more modern and cleaner renewable energy based heating products,” says IBD’s Technical Director Darren Johnson..
IBD Distribution offers complete design, technical and commissioning support with its Total MCS solutions for non-MCS (Microgeneration Certifiication Scheme) approved installers. This is further backed up by the company’s manufacturing partners (including Daikin), field service network and top flight training facilities.
