The myclimate support programme for heat pumps offers funding for the replacement of old oil and natural gas heating in rented residential properties. The Switzerland-wide funding programme will finance geothermal, water and air source heat pumps with an output of between 15 and 400 kW.
Large apartment buildings in Switzerland continue to be heated using mostly fossil fuels, and as such make a substantial contribution towards Switzerland's CO₂ emissions. At the same time, in around 70 per cent of properties, one form of fossil heating will be replaced by another; in cities such as Geneva, Biel, Lucerne, Bern or Zurich, the percentage is even higher. However, technology is available nowadays to ensure that heating pump systems can also reliably supply heating to large properties in an environmentally friendly manner. The financial contribution provided by this support programme removes the obstacles presented by high investment costs.
The amount of subsidies for the heat pump is calculated by myclimate on the basis of the previous annual energy consumption (after registration in the subsidy programme). Our contribution calculator provides an initial estimate of the amount of the subsidies. The subsidies from this programme are sometimes higher than those from the cantonal subsidy programmes, so it is worth comparing them. The contributions are the same as for other KliK programs (e.g. Energie Zukunft Schweiz), in this overview of the support programs for heat pumps we show the differences.
In order to benefit from the funding, certain criteria must be met:
Further criteria can be found in the registration form.
This carbon-offset project has been made possible thanks to funding from the KliK Foundation.
While the following points are not participation criteria for the support programme, we nevertheless strongly suggest that they be taken into consideration:
If you have technical or planning questions relating to heat pump systems, please contact a heat pump specialist in your area.
Do you have general questions relating to the funding programme? Don't hesitate to send us an email or give us a call (+41 44 500 43 50).
Around 9 000 MWh of renewable heat will be generated annually.
2.50 t CO2 will be saved annually.
