vaillant ovo heat pump plus tariff

Vaillant and Ovo have partnered together to offer a heat pump tariff, Heat Pump Plus. This new heat pump tariff cuts costs to just 15p per kWh for homes in the UK.

This new add-on energy tariff will reduce the costs of running a Vaillant heat pump by up to £300 per year1. The Heat Pump Plus tariff is now available to homeowners with a Vaillant aroTHERM or aroTHERM plus with an internet gateway such as myVAILLANT connect.

This new type of add-on tariff will make heat pumps cheaper to run.

How will Heat Pump Plus work? 

There will be two separate rates for homeowners – one for the heat pump, and one for the rest of the household energy usage.

The Heat Pump Plus tariff is available to new and existing Vaillant customers with an aroTHERM or aroTHERM plus. To allow customers to access the new rate, an internet gateway such as the myVAILLANT connect needs to be present.

Vaillant’s research found that more than 52% of the UK would replace their gas boiler if they could afford to do so. 75% said they would make the switch with a roughly 50% reduction in running costs.

The new tariff announcement from Vaillant and Ovo tackles the running costs barrier. When you also combine this heat pump tariff with the £7,500 Boiler Upgrade Scheme grant, transitioning to a heat pump is cheaper than ever before.
