0% VAT for the Installation of Domestic Air Conditioning in 2022
Chancellor Rishi Sunak, has announced that from April 1st 2022, 0% VAT on Aircon would be introduced to the Installation of Residential Air Conditioning Installations. The UK government hopes the introduction of 0% VAT on Aircon will encourage homeowners to make the switch to residential air conditioning heat pump technology, in a bid to lower domestic carbon emissions. Room heating and cooling, hot water, and under-floor heating can all be supplied through 0% VAT on Aircon/heat pump products. The Government hopes that the introduction of 0% VAT on installations of AC units will encourage more homeowners to opt for an installation of a home air conditioning unit over traditional boiler systems.
As a residential homeowner, how do I benefit from 0% VAT on Aircon?
On average a Residential Air Conditioning installation costs anywhere between £1,700 – £3,000 for a small room/office.
For a double bedroom an average air conditioner installation costs approximately £2,200 – £3,000.
However, now without the 5% VAT on top of your installation cost an installation that would have cost £3,000, would now cost you a total of £2,857.14 a saving of £142.86.
Now with this saving on the initial investment, there is more reason to opt for an Air Conditioning Installation.
Saving money long-term with AC and contributing to the Government’s plan for a zero-carbon emissions future.
In fact, if you have been contributing to the Government’s plan for a zero-carbon emission future you may have purchased an electric vehicle.
