The Home Heating Guide, the UK’s leading online resource for homeowners regarding all domestic central heating, boiler and renewable energy-related issues, is providing all the latest information on the upcoming Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) to help the nation to tackle rising heating bills.
The Government’s incentive is expected to commence in June 2011 with full details of the scheme to be announced this month.
With the launch of the scheme fast approaching, the Home Heating Guide is advising homeowners to investigate the potential benefits.
The scheme hopes to cover all types of renewable heat systems, making it potentially open to everyone.
For property owners, small businesses and community projects this means there are significant savings to be made on heating bills.
The purpose of the RHI is to increase the level of heat generation in the UK from renewable sources. It will work by enabling applicants to receive tariff payments for installing renewable heat systems in their properties and homes.
Examples of qualifying technologies are solar thermal and ground source heat pumps. This and many more can be explored at www.homeheatingguide.co.uk
By installing an eligible technology, applicants will be able to benefit in three ways:
1) Reduced heating bills
2) Payouts for the heat and hot water you generate. Currently up to 18p/kWhr.
3) Lower carbon emissions
David Holmes, Founder of the Home Heating Guide, said: “We all know the cost of living in the UK is a major concern for many individuals, families and communities at the moment. That’s why it’s essential for homeowners and small businesses to be well informed about incentives such as the RHI. With this scheme there will be multiple advantages for all who take part, particularly the ability to heat homes without a dependency on costly fuels like gas and oil.
“The Home Heating Guide knows the importance of such savings, which is why it’s providing all the latest details on the RHI on its website. I would encourage anyone interested in cutting their bills to take a look.”
