Air Source Heat Pumps

Air Source Heat pumps are one of the greenest ways to heat your home. These magic devices take energy from the air (and a small amount of electricity) to warm your home extremely efficiently. A heat pump can lower your personal heating carbon footprint by 73%!

Find out more about what Octopus thinks about Heat Pumps.

Zero Emission Boilers

If a heat pump isn't right for your home, you could take a look at a Zero Emission Boiler (ZEB) from tepeo.

This clever device charges up like a battery using clean, off-peak energy and releases heat to your radiators when you need it.

With minimal changes to your heating system and no outside space required, tepeo's ZEB is a great way to get off fossil fuel heating.

Smart Heating Control

If you're looking for quick wins, smart thermostats like tado° are packed with features like individual room control and open window detection that can save you cash and reduce your carbon footprint.

What's more - when paired with one of our smart tariffs a smart thermostat will heat your home at the cheapest and greenest times!

Smart Hot Water Control

Why not heat your water in a smart way?

If you have a separate hot water tank, the Climote immersion heater will tell you exactly how much hot water you have, and top up when you need more, helping you to reduce energy wastage.

Smart Ventilation Control

Did you know that a large portion of our heating escapes through the air bricks in our walls?

AirEx have created smart air bricks which open and close automatically to reduce heat losses while maintaining ventilation around your home.

What's more, if you have a Tado smart thermostat, we can link them together to ensure you only ventilate your home when the heating's off.

Solar PV

Solar PV is one of cleanest, greenest ways to power your home, harnessing the natural energy from the sun!

If you combine solar panels with a smart home battery you can store the energy for when you need it most, or even export it back to the grid with our Outgoing Octopus tariff.

Find out more about how you could spend up to 90% less on your electricity bill with our home solar installations.

Battery Storage

Everyone benefits from smart home batteries - even those of us without solar panels.

All you have to do is charge up your battery when energy is cheapest and greenest. Then later on, when energy is in high demand (and so dirtier and more expensive), you can run on the cheap, green energy you've saved up instead.

Find out more about how our home battery installations can slash your bills and help make the most of green energy when it's abundant, paving the way for a low carbon future.

Charging at home is easy, convenient and hassle free. And there are loads of smart chargers that work with our smart tariffs, meaning you can take advantage of the cheapest and greenest times to charge your car. Find out more over on our blog.

Energy Analytics

Voltaware's smart device can tell you which appliances you're spending most on. What's more, when you link it up to one of our Octopus smart tariffs, it'll tell you exactly when they cost the most to run, so you can make even smarter energy decisions.

Heat & Hot Water Cylinders

Heat & Hot Water Cylinders are so flexible that installing one could help you reduce your energy costs whilst increasing your home comfort levels. By combining this with one of our smart tariffs, the energy stored within it isn't limited to going down the drain!

If you have Solar Thermal or Solar PV installed, changing your hot water cylinder to a Heat & Hot Water Cylinder will make more use of the energy available to you by helping to heat your home as well as your hot water.

Installing a Heat & Hot Water Cylinder instead of a standard hot water cylinder from new will help future-proof your home and reduce the run cycles of your primary heating system component.
