What do I have to do to qualify for an Octopus heat pump?

To claim the government heat pump grant and get an Octopus Energy heat pump installation you’ll  need to check a few things first.

  • Do you own your own home?
  • Have an EPC from the past 10 years? If you don’t, Octopus can take care of that for you.
  • Does your EPC will need to show you don’t need additional insulation? (There is usually a recommendation on the report if it’s needed.) If you do need insulation, Octopus can help you with that too.
  • Have you got enough room to install the Octopus heat pump and hot water tank? You can check the Octopus sizing guide here.
  • Have you finished renovations?  You’ll need to have completed any home renovations before the heat pump can be installed.

Octopus Energy heat pump quote.

The initial quote for an Octopus heat pump is done online. If you are happy with your quote and want to press ahead Octopus will need to attend your home to do a survey. 

During the survey process, Octopus will visit your home and look at your;

  • Rooms.
  • Roof space.
  • Fuse box.
  • Boiler,
  • Hot water tank (if you have one) or space where you could have a hot water tank.
  • Outside space where the heat pump will go.

The survey will take 2 – 3 hours to complete.

They will need to ask you some questions about your hot water usage and measure all your radiators. An important part of the survey is finding out if what you have is up to the job. You may need to add some insulation or change a radiator or two.  Each home is different, that’s why the survey is so important.

The Octopus heat pump survey covers everything. Octopus will work out where all the wiring will go and where additional equipment like a hot water tank can be housed if you don’t already have one.

Outside they will find the best spot for the heat pump. They can even show you what the heat pump will look like outside. They’ll simply add the heat pump to a photograph and bingo you’ll see it on their tablet. It’ll give you a better idea of what to expect.

Within a few days, you will be sent an overview of your new heat pump system and a detailed quote which will include running costs. If you are happy to go ahead with your Octopus heat pump installation you will be allocated a date for installation.

How much does a heat pump cost in the UK? Octopus Energy aims to supply and install a heat pump for the same price as a traditional gas boiler.

In the UK according to the Energy Saving Trust, an air-to-water heat pump typically costs between £9,000 and £11,000 but Octopus aims to do it for a lot less thanks to the government heat pump grant of £7,500 and the additional £100 Octopus heat pump referral scheme.

Referring to the popular Octopus Energy customer switch referral scheme Rebecca Dibb-Simkin launched the new Octopus heat pump referral scheme on the 2nd of April 2024.

Nothing makes us happier than satisfied customers, and we’re incredibly proud that so many have referred us to their friends and family over the years. Our approach has always been to put money back into people’s pockets.

Are heat pumps worth it in the UK? 

In the UK, the gas that we burn in our homes to keep us warm and to cook our food accounts for about 14% of our emissions. So in order to help the planet we really need to address this issue, and fast!

The technology involved in an air source heat pump has been around for around 160 years. A fridge, in its simplest form, is a heat pump in reverse. It takes air around it and makes it cold.  Heat pumps are greener as they use electricity instead of gas to heat your home. Now thousands of people could discover heat pumps are an option for them thanks to the government grant.

Do heat pumps save on running costs in the UK?

Heat pumps powered by renewable electricity are the way forward for many homeowners. They are:

  • Around four times more energy-efficient than a gas boiler, without the carbon emissions
  • Reduce hot and cold spots within the home by providing consistent and comfortable warmth.
  • A heat pump has fewer parts and safety concerns. (No worries about carbon monoxide)👏 So a heat pump can last longer and needs less maintenance.

Right now, our world relies on stealing energy and natural resources that we can’t give back. If you want to continue to be a part of the natural world, you have to act like nature. With heat pumps, you don’t have to burn anything, you don’t have to steal anything – we’re mimicking nature. Even when it’s cold outside, we can take some of that energy and produce something with it. – Peter Konowalczyk @Octopus Energy.

Here are some frequently asked questions about heat pumps. They might help you answer if air source heat pumps work in the UK.

How noisy is a heat pump?

The general consensus is that the sound level the heat pump emits is similar to the level of a whispered conversation. If your heat pump is making any more noise you really need to get your installer to revisit.

Does a heat pump get the water hot enough?

Yes, I have read one review where the homeowner was getting temperatures up to 50 degrees C. I think that’s fine for any home. You can turn up the water temperature by clicking a few buttons.

How much are the energy bills when you have a heat pump?

Similar to running a gas boiler it depends on how long you have it on for. One of the good points of going all-electric is that you can get rid of your gas meter. You need to ask to have your gas meter removed but after this, you’ll have no gas service charges on your bill. Up until now, gas has been significantly cheaper than electricity to heat your home BUT things are changing. A heat pump is four times more efficient and is better for the planet.

When installing a heat pump, do you need to change your radiators and pipes?

If your house is fairly new or you have new radiators it’s possible that you won’t have to change anything. Octopus will do a survey before installation to give you a good idea before you go ahead. If you need to change some radiators in your home this will be included in their quote.

If you are planning on doing home renovations or are simply ripping out your old boiler with the government grant it’s a good time to consider installing a heat pump. The government grant isn’t going to be around forever.

Is it true that you can only have a heat pump if your home is well-insulated?

Ensuring our homes are properly insulated is essential to avoid wasting energy. If the goal is to minimise energy consumption, it’s obvious that the same principle applies to gas boilers. It doesn’t make sense to inefficiently heat our homes with fossil fuels while considering it unacceptable to do so with a heat pump. Both methods waste energy, but gas boilers contribute to higher carbon emissions.

It’s common knowledge that well-insulated homes are crucial to preventing energy wastage. If the aim is to reduce energy consumption, it’s a no-brainer that the same logic applies to gas boilers. It’s illogical to inefficiently heat our homes with fossil fuels while deeming it unacceptable to do so with a heat pump. Both methods result in energy waste, but gas boilers generate higher carbon emissions.
