Renewable heating products have become increasingly popular in recent years, especially (though not solely) for those located off the gas grid. There are options for all properties regardless of size and construction type.
This is making biomass boilers, air or ground source heat pumps and solar heating systems great alternatives to conventional gas, oil and LPG boilers, especially when considering the longer term forecasts for energy prices.
The domestic RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive) has led to a rise in demand for renewables. This increase in demand has been driven by the domestic RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive) which is the first initiative of its kind. This incentive enables those using a renewable heating system to power their home to be paid for every kilowatt hour of energy they produce, guaranteed for seven years.
The tariffs apply to biomass boilers, air source heat pumps, ground source heat pumps and solar thermal.
The concept is to make renewable heating more affordable and attractive, leading to lower fuel bills, less carbon emissions and more work for installers.
