Our Zero Carbon Home trial

Next on the list: sharing our insights

We’re no longer accepting new registrations as we’re now moving to the next exciting phase: gathering carbon-kicking insights.

We can’t wait to share them with you.

What's the Zero Carbon Home trial?

The way we use energy at home plays a big role in how we tackle the climate crisis. Just heating up homes makes for the largest single source of carbon emissions in the UK – over 15%2.

Time for net zero carbon homes.

The smart tech going into your home

You’ll get this brand-new heating system worth up to £15,000 installed in your home – for free:

Ecodan air source heat pumps

Ecodan air source heat pumps from Mitsubishi

Ideal from small flats to large, detached houses alike, Mitsubishi Electric’s Ecodan air source heat pumps are the renewable, low-carbon alternative to traditional, high-carbon heating systems. Using only water and electrical connections to operate, they bring super-efficient, sustainable heating and hot water to your home, all year round.

Sunamp’s UniQ thermal battery

Sunamp’s UniQ thermal battery

Sunamp’s products use something called ‘phase change materials’ (PCM) to store and release a lot of heat quickly to help warm things up or cool them down. For our trial, the thermal batteries will heat the water flowing through it, warming up your home.

Kaluza’s intelligent energy platform

A Tado smart thermostat

With this, you can set your ideal temperature when you're at home, and if no one’s in? The Tado app will give you a heads-up to turn the heat off, so you can save money and energy.
