Be Smart, Be Warm,
If you use oil or LPG to heat your home you could save money and move to a more sustainable energy source with our Smart Hybrid Heating System, supported by government financial incentives.
Introducing our Smart Hybrid Heating System
We’ll install an air source heat pump alongside your current LPG or oil boiler and our award-winning advanced smart controls will switch between the two heat sources, automatically selecting the most appropriate fuel source to deliver you warmth and comfort.
The Advanced Smart Control Service continuously evaluates and models the thermal characteristics of your home and interprets weather forecast data. This ensures that the heating comes on at the right time to heat your home to the desired set point in the most cost efficient way.
Our aim is to reduce your energy consumption and carbon emissions. By introducing a more efficient renewable energy source with intelligent controls, you could benefit from greater temperature control, a lower carbon footprint and you could save money on fuel bills too!

Why install the B-Snug Smart Hybrid Heating System?
It’s a great deal. The B-Snug Smart Hybrid Heating System enables homeowners to take advantage of financial support provided by the government's domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme. The assignment of rights of the RHI payments from the customer to B-Snug, allows us as the investor to fund the purchase and installation of the renewable heating system and keep the overall costs paid by you to a minimum. The B-Snug system is also ‘Metering and Monitoring Service Package (MMSP)’ ready which means additional government funded income worth £1,610 is available to further offset your investment.
It's an ideal solution for homeowners who are:
Concerned about the cost of filling up their oil or LPG storage tanks
Interested in reducing their heating bill and carbon emissions
Extending their homes and would like to install a bigger system for less
Thinking about replacing their ageing boiler because they are worried about breakdowns or cost of repair
Looking for a lower carbon alternative to heat their home but are put off by the disruption and cost of completely replacing their existing system
Adding a second fuel source will also give greater fuel security in the peak of winter when conventional fuel supply could be an issue in extended cold weather periods.
What is the Domestic RHI and assignment of rights?
The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (Domestic RHI) is a government financial incentive to promote the use of renewable heat technologies. Administered by Ofgem, the scheme was set up to encourage home-owners to switch to renewable heating systems to help the UK reduce its carbon emissions and meet its renewable energy targets.
People who join the RHI scheme and stick to its rules receive quarterly payments for seven years for the amount of clean, green renewable heat it’s estimated their system produces.
Renewable heating can be expensive to install, but in the right properties the potential savings on fuel costs or energy bills, combined with the Domestic RHI payment can make the renewable heating systems an attractive investment. The government have put a scheme in place to assist homeowners to overcome the barrier of the upfront cost by permitting an assignment of rights. This option allows investors like us to fund the purchase and installation of your renewable heating system in return for your RHI payments ...which you 'assign' to us.
What is MMSP?
Participants in the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive scheme can also apply to register for the Metering and Monitoring Service Package (MMSP). This is an optional scheme (only open to those with heat pumps or biomass boilers that burn wood pellets) put in place by the government to help cover some of the costs of installing and operating the package.
If you are successful in registering for MMSP, OFGEM will pay you £805 within 3 months of your install being commissioned and £115 a year for 7 years.
As part of your Smart Hybrid Heating System installation, we will fit a set of meters and sensors to your renewable heating system which means it will be ‘MMSP ready’. This means that you will be able to log on to our PassivLiving portal to see the data relating to your Smart Hybrid Heating System and check how well it's performing.
