How to Avoid Another Winter of Painful Heating Bills

With the coldest Easter on record this year, and further heating price rises announced, homeowners looking to switch to more efficient sustainable heating should act now to avoid another expensive winter.

The Renewable Heat Incentive, designed to pay cash rewards to homeowners who install heat pumps or biomass boilers, is now due to launch in Spring 2014. In the lead up to the much anticipated launch, homeowners can claim a Renewable Heat Premium Payment, to help with the cost of the installation. The Premium Payment scheme has now been extended until March 2014.

Here?s an example of the costs and savings when switching from oil heating to a biomass boiler

Current oil use3,000 litres per year
Bill savings after switching to biomassAround £900 per year
Domestic RHI payments to you£1,250 - £2,100 per year
index linked for 7 years
Cost to installation biomass boiler£18,000

Remember, this is an example only – every property is different. EnergyMyWay will survey your property free of charge and without obligation to give you an accurate breakdown of the costs and rewards of switching to renewable energy..

Why now is the time for renewable energy heating

EnergyMyWay?s advice to homeowners, in particular if you are on oil or LPG, is to review your options for heat pumps or biomass boilers now, in time to have your heating changed this Spring/Summer. You will benefit from immediate bill savings when your heating goes back on and you will automatically qualify for cash rewards in the Spring from the Renewable Heat Incentive.
