Heat pumps are the future of home heating. 17% of the UK’s carbon emissions come from heating buildings, but rather than burning gas, heat pumps like Cosy Octopus syphon ambient energy from the air and top that energy up with a little extra electricity to heat your home. This makes them far greener, safer, and more reliable than dirty gas boilers - and many more times as efficient too.
A revolution in home heating
Still, Cosy Octopus is more than just a heat pump; it's a complete revolution in home heating. Picture this: a cutting-edge heat pump, intuitive controls, room sensors attuned to your comfort zone, a tailor-made cosy Octopus smart tariff, and our award-winning 5-star service package – all bundled into one game-changing package.
The Cosy Octopus lineup
- Cosy 6: Our pride and joy, the Cosy 6! It's our very first in-house heat pump, designed bygreen-heating maestro Jason Cassells to be both run, and installed incredibly efficiently, and to warm your home just as well as a gas boiler would. We’re entering the market with a 6kW heat pump – aimed at a typical three-bed UK home – with more and larger models following over the next six months.
- Cosy Hub: Our intuitive home control system is designed to keep you in charge. The Cosy hub optimises and automates your heat pump to run most efficiently, keeping your bills low and your home toasty – and you'll be able to monitor it all through our highly-rated, hassle-free app.

This is a huge day for clean heating. The combination of a high-temperature heat pump – as hot as a gas boiler – Octopus smart tariffs and room sensors across your home doesn’t just open up cheaper clean heating – but more comfort tooGreg Jackson (CEO)
Green heating: affordable heating
Cosy Octopus is a huge step towards making green heating a reality for people up and down the country. For homes that need no new radiators, pipes, or water tanks, it's likely to be absolutely free after the Government’s Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS). For those requiring some tweaks, it's available for around £3,000 after taking into account the BUS (and could even be available for less, given the Government’s recently upped the grant to £7,500!)
Join the Cosy revolution!
Since launching Britain's first R&D centre for green heating, we've invested over £50 million to drive the rollout of heat pumps, push down costs, and bring down the UK's carbon emissions in the process. With Cosy 6 available from December, and our even bigger, more powerful heat pumps set to follow - watch this space - we can't wait to see what you think.
