We ask that the applicant completes the form personally. However, your installer may help you gather much of the information you need to apply and stay compliant with the scheme rules.

Documentation

Your installer should give you:

  • an MCS certificate (within 10 working days of the commissioning date)
  • an MCS compliance certificate (and they should point out where the MCS installation number is on it)
  • an itemised invoice showing parts and labour
  • the completed Installer Metering Questions (for biomass or for heat pumps) document (only if your  heating system needs to be metered). You will need this to complete the questions on metering in the application form. Also, there's an Alternative Metering Arrangements (for biomass or for heat pumps) document that your installer will give you if required.
  • advice on the heating system’s maintenance, servicing and efficient use. This is because you must keep your heating system in good working order throughout your seven years on the scheme. They should also explain what actions might invalidate the warranty.
  • advice on how to use and read your meters (if you need them).
