How heat pump financing works

Before seeking financing for a heat pump, first you need to decide on the right heating system for your house. Find out what you need to consider when choosing a heat pump.

 

The monthly lease payments will be calculated on the basis of the heat pump system, the price and chosen term. As when purchasing a heat pump, the financial incentives provided from the various authorities will also be considered when financing a heat pump. But what is the best thing about heat pump financing? At the end of the term, you can take over ownership of the heating system free of charge and enjoy cost-efficient heating for many years to come.

Should you buy a heat pump upfront or on finance?

The question of whether it is better to buy a heat pump upfront or to buy it on finance often crops up. There is no one-size-fits-all solution for this. It is a decision that depends on various factors such as your budget and living situation.

 

We have made a list of the advantages and disadvantages of each option to help you decide whether to buy a heat pump upfront or on finance:

Financing versus a bank loan

No doubt you are asking yourself whether you would not be better off just getting a bank loan and using it to buy the heat pump upfront. Wouldn’t that be cheaper than buying the heat pump on finance?

 

It is important to remember that, depending on the bank, interest rates for a loan can be up to 7 %. For the relatively small amount of CHF 30,000, the interest would already add up to CHF 2,100. A bank loan would therefore result in a lot of additional costs which can be spared if you buy your solar panels on finance.

Why is buying a heat pump on finance worth it?

Buying a heat pump on finance is worth it because you do not have any initial investment costs. Instead, you will simply pay a monthly rate.


Thanks to our financing offer, even people who do not have a sufficient budget can benefit from an environmentally friendly heat pump. Even if you do have sufficient cash funds, it is still worth buying a heat pump on finance, as it means you can invest your money elsewhere.

Over a period of five years, an upfront purchase does work out cheaper than buying the heat pump on finance. However, buying a heat pump on finance is the perfect alternative if you do not have the money required upfront.
