Clean Heat Market Mechanism delayed until April 2025

The government has delayed the implementation of the Clean Heat Market Mechanism (CHMM) for a year until April 2025.

At the same time, changes to the Boiler Upgrade Scheme were announced, meaning homeowners will no longer have to install cavity wall or loft insulation to use the scheme, it cited.

Claire Coutinho, energy security secretary, said: “We’ve already supported families by making our Boiler Upgrade Scheme one of the most generous in Europe and now we’re making heat pumps even cheaper and easier to install. 

“This is all part of our wider plan to ensure we cut our emissions and make homes more energy efficient without burdening families with high costs.” 

Removing mandatory cavity wall and loft insulation could now reduce the costs associated with installing a heat pump on a semi-detached property by around £2,500, today’s statement added.
