  1. It began with “Hi there”

    Why trust a letter that doesn’t know your name?

    I’d throw it away. It’s a scam.

    It’s a bait and switch. The renewable heat incentive is a post-installation scheme that requires you to register and qualify for payments.

    They will likely come along and pressure you into paying for the supply and installation of a heat pump that you will be paid back for via the government scheme *only if you qualify* and over a number of years.

    Bin it.

    It looks like “free installation”, not “free heat pump”. This just means the cost of the installation has been added to the product cost, and they’re counting on you not caring what brand/model of heat pump is being installed and how much it will cost.

    You’re likely to get a cheap unit, pay dearly for it, and the service technician will be camping on a cot in your pantry to keep it running.

    What kind of a scam is this?
