Frequently asked questions
Payment using the savings
You become the owner of the system after just one year because of the subsidy. After HAAS has received your full payment and ISDE subsidy, and the hybrid heat pump has been installed.
This is the power of HAASheat. Your tax benefits (Working Allowance Scheme) give you up to 50% discount on the purchase. You can pay with your gross salary or days off. Even with a just a few days off, you can pay for the whole year at once!
Then there are various solutions:
- Your employer can use HAASPlus+, and outside of the WKR, reimburse you for the hybrid heat pump with some extra days off that you exchange for it (see the web calculator).
- Your employer can temporarily change certain reservations (e.g. a contribution, membership, party package) to participation in the hybrid heat pump. In the end, you will save much more! Ongoing savings and therefore monthly money.
- Your employer can reserve it for the next calendar year.
This is arranged by the HAASheat financing service.
There are 2 packages, one with an immediate payment and a loan payable over 84 months. In both cases, you are the immediate owner. We apply for the subsidy and arrange the loan with the Nationaal Warmte Fonds at a very low interest rate. In addition, we help you to take advantage of tax benefits through your employer (as with the bicycle plan), so you pay much less for the heat pump. With the direct payment package you receive the employee compensation (tax benefit) during 6 months up to a maximum of 7 years. With the loan package, your compensation is paid during 84 months, leaving you with a monthly payment of only €20 to €29.95. See our savings calculator on the website. With both packages, you become owner immediately after the financing and subsidy are approved and paid.
As an employer, the Working Allowance Scheme (WKR) allows you to give your employees untaxed compensation. The WKR now also allows you to give your employees a tax-free allowance for a hybrid heat pump through the HAASheat concept.
Moving house, changing jobs or energy suppliers
Due to the increase in value of the house, the hybrid heat pump is usually sold with the house.
Any financing will continue, but your house will have a great added value when sold, so you will easily recover those costs. The new owner can take over your hybrid heat pump (and the savings!).
That does not affect your situation.
Then the benefits can be transferred to the next employer. Provided that the term has not yet expired and the employer is open to this.
The employer does not need to vouch for the employee nor are there any (financial) risk.
If there is no more space in the WKR, the HAASheat concept can also be used outside the WKR with HAASPlus+. The employee then exchanges a few extra days off in order to reimburse the extra employer costs (80% final tax levy). As an employer, you therefore have no additional costs!
The employee concludes a contract with HAASheat. The employee then takes their invoice to the employer.
The ISDE subsidy applies to the Netherlands and to homes built before June 30, 2018.
With professional parties: the manufacturers Remeha, Daikin and ATAG, installation experts, specialised financiers, subsidy experts, AFM specialists, and Ernst and Young for legal and taxation expertise.
HAAS is the internet portal that provides information on hybrid heat pumps and the possibility of obtaining a large purchase discount through employee benefits (e.g. Working Allowance Scheme and HAASplus+). By calculating in advance on the website, you can see how much you can potentially save, provided your home is suitable for the system. The large discounts are obtained by your employee benefits (= Working Allownace Scheme), the subsidy, our HAAS calculations and the HAASplus+ package, if the Working Allowance Scheme has already been allocated. You can then arrange the order, the subsidy, the installation request, the financing and the discounts with one signature and one form. HAAS will then take care of all these elements.
The HAAS model allows you to pay from the savings, and after 2 to 7 years the entire savings are yours. This will accelerate the energy transition and you will save 2000 kilos of CO2 per year per house. With HAAS, 100,000 homes will save 200,000 tonnes of CO2 per year.
Product and technology
No, your central heating system remains, but burns 40-70% less, so you consume much less gas and CO2. Your hybrid heat pump takes over the work of the central heating system. Your central heating boiler will therefore last much longer.
Yes, your energy label goes up to 2 steps and this also means an increase in the value of your house.
Yes, the hybrid heat pumps selected by HAAS work with all makes of central heating systems.
With the online calculator you can calculate the potential savings. Whether your house is ultimately suitable depends on various factors that are considered during the inspection. Almost all houses are suitable.
New boilers are now much more efficient and have improved efficiency. Consult your technician, as your energy savings could improve significantly if you also get a new boiler, and with that significantly reduce your costs.
The indoor unit makes almost no sound, and the latest technology for the outdoor unit makes it almost whisper-quiet. In the summer, you are outside and the unit is mostly silent. In autumn and winter, you are mostly inside, so you won’t hear it either.
The small indoor unit is: 492x268x220mm (16 kg) and the outdoor unit 550x849x342mm (39 kg).
It is the ”personal assistant” to your existing central heating boiler, which remains in use. The hybrid heat pump extracts heat from the outside air and uses it to heat the house, saving 40-70% on gas. The central heating boiler is only used on cold days (4 degrees or less) and for heating hot water.
The expected service life with normal use is 15-20 years.
The manufacturer’s warranty on the hybrid heat pump itself is 7 years. 2 years completely and 5 years for parts.
Installation and service
In the first 2 years, thereafter against payment. However, the maintenance of the central heating can usually coincide with that of the hybrid heat pump.
Yes, the transportation fees are included in the first 2 years.
Yes, this is also possible.
Yes, every central heating boiler is suitable.
It takes up to 8 weeks for the grant and any financing to be approved, and for your payment to be received. Then the technician schedules the installation.
A preliminary inspection is certainly desirable and is included in the HAASheat concept.
A hybrid heat pump can work with different systems. The technician can look at your options during the inspection.
The installer can determine this during the (digital) inspection, this depends on the house and installation.
The costs for the hybrid heat pump itself and the installation. During the digital inspection, you will be informed if there are additional costs. This is before you decide to fully go through with the purchase, so you will always know your price before you make the purchase.
Then the technician can check remotely what is wrong and reset it or the technician will come to your house to repair it. If this happens within the first 2 years, it is free of charge. It is also possible to conclude a service contract with the technician directly.
