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.

Electric Thermal Store Boiler

Don't have the outside space for a heat pump? You may need to go electric.

Innovative start up Tepeo has used the latest thermal storage tech to revolutionise electric heating. The result? A washing machine-sized device you can charge up when energy is cheapest and greenest.

Electric Wallpaper

Why not move away from boilers altogether with infrared wallpaper - yes, really!

NexGen is an ultra thin, ultra-safe, laminate infrared heating, which can turn your walls or ceilings into a low carbon heating system. Rather than warming the air, Nexgen gently heats objects in your home (including you), which is more efficient. Plus, you can 'zone' your home, heating whichever rooms you need.

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.

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.

Not only can this slash your bills, it helps us make the most of green energy when its abundant, paving the way for a low carbon future.
