Many of our domestic heating products are eligible for financial support thanks to the Domestic RHI Scheme, designed to encourage homeowners to use renewable energy sources. With advanced heating technology from Viessmann, you could join the thousands of UK homeowners already receiving payments.

The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (Domestic RHI) is operated by the government and offers financial incentives to promote the use of renewable heat in order to help the UK reduce its carbon emissions and meet its renewable energy targets.

Once you qualify for the scheme, you can enjoy quarterly payments for seven years for the amount of clean, green renewable heat that your system is estimated to produce. To make it even easier, you’ll know straight away which Viessmann products qualify as they are already approved. The scheme is open to homeowners replacing or supplementing their existing heating system, as well as those fitting a new heating system in a new build or renovation project.

The Domestic RHI Scheme covers four eligible renewable technology types:

  1. biomass only boilers and biomass pellet stoves
  2. air source heat pumps
  3. ground source heat pumps
  4. flat plate and evacuated tube solar thermal panels.

To discover and compare just how much you could potentially earn on these different technologies, we’ve prepared some examples below for urban and rural properties.

Whether you are already enjoying using Viessmann heating products in your home or are interested in fitting our technology in your home, our customer service team will be happy to provide more information about which of our technologies qualify for the Domestic RHI Scheme and how to take advantage of it. We can also put you in touch with a suitably qualified installer to help you find the optimum solution for your home.
