What is the RHI Grant?
The Domestic Renewable Heating Incentive is a scheme created by the Government to promote the use of renewable heating in the home. Switching to heating systems that use eligible energy sources, like our Air Conditioning Units and Heat Pumps do, will help the UK as a whole reduce its carbon emissions and meet its renewable energy targets, which is why the Government wants to offer you a financial incentive to do so.
Those who join the RHI scheme and continue to follow its rules will receive quarterly payments for seven years for the amount of clean, green renewable heat their system is estimated to produce.
Recycled Air is dedicated to helping you claim this financial incentive to help fund your new eco friendly and energy efficient heating system.
How much could you get?
To qualify, you just need to be in England, Scotland or Wales and own your own property as either the main occupier or landlord!

“I’d been involved in renewable energy in Cornwall for some time. Our house is a converted roundhouse barn where the main fuel was oil, with under-floor heating.
A consultant recommended solar PV, solar thermal panels and an air source heat pump. We also have a wood burning stove. The Feed-In Tariff from the PV contributes significantly to the electricity used by the heat pump. The Domestic RHI reduces our energy cost to zero for the foreseeable future – but this, of course, is the result of having made a significant total investment in renewables.
The Domestic RHI was a factor in my decision. I periodically checked websites for updates and that is how I knew of the implementation. It was surprisingly easy to schedule an assessment with a Green Deal consultant and extremely easy to apply for the Domestic RHI online.
Investments in renewables, given these incentives, offer a decent return on investment, so of course I would recommend that anyone should seriously consider renewables. I think you need to plan projects very carefully and compare technologies and suppliers, as with any significant investment.”
