Hear directly from owners and experts

Air source heat pumps provide efficient and reliable low-carbon home heating, but they're still uncommon in most of the UK. If you are considering one or want to learn more about them, we can connect you with owners and experts to visit and ask any questions you have. We’re running visits soon in London and Glasgow, with more locations to follow.

About us

Visit a Heat Pump is a pilot service run by Nesta, the UK's innovation agency for social good. Nesta's sustainable future mission is working to accelerate the decarbonisation of household activities in the UK and improve levels of productivity. Our goal is that, by 2030, the UK will have reduced household carbon emissions by 28% from 2019 levels, and will be on track to reach zero by 2048.

This pilot service will be running in Autumn 2022. Your participation in this pilot will help us help us better understand how it could operate at a wider scale across the UK. If you have any questions about the pilot or would like to be involved please contact
