zero vat on domestic air conditioning
Great news for homeowners wanting air conditioning – As of 1st April 2022, all domestic air source heat pumps can now be installed at zero VAT rate. This includes air conditioning units that can supply both cooling & heating.
On a standard small installation, this is a minimum saving of £300+
The new zero vat rate on domestic air conditioning comes as part of the Chancellor of the Exchequer’s Spring Statement, in a bid to tackle high energy bills and reduce our dependency on imported energy.
The zero rating applies to installations of these products and therefore cannot be applied by sellers of equipment only. This means that you can not buy a system from a shop direct without paying 20% VAT, but we as professional registered installers can both supply AND install systems VAT free.
The VAT scrap is only valid for 5 years, so if you’ve been thinking of having air conditioning at home, now is the time to act!
Domestic air conditioning is becoming ever more popular, not just for providing cooling on those hot summer days, and heating on a chilly winter evening, but also for its superb energy efficiency – a very important consideration with the current hikes in energy costs.
Domestic air conditioning can be installed in almost any room including bedrooms, hallways, landings, lounges, kitchens, conservatories, home offices, dens, snooker rooms, gyms, man caves and even caravans.
Here’s a sample of some domestic installations done by us at Torr. Click the images to enlarge.
Of course, we also install refrigeration, ventilation and air conditioning for shops, businesses, offices and industrial installations, but they still have to pay the additional 20% VAT.
Whereas you, the homeowner, can now get yours VAT FREE for the next 5 years.
