Scottish Gas offers £499 heat pump install
UK: Scottish Gas has announced it will now be guaranteeing to provide the lowest-priced heat pump installations in the UK.
Scottish Gas says it will start prices at £499 per install but will match anything lower offered by another company for an MCS- accredited install.
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 after its Net Zero Index released at the end of 2022 showed uncertainty about low carbon heating. 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 would choose a heat pump.
The price includes a £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 200 litres, along with mechanical and electrical installation. Scottish Gas will further support customers by offering five-years warranty after installation.
