We’ll support you through every step of your heat pump journey. Join free workshops and information sessions, visit open homes and find out more about heat pumps and making your home more energy efficient.
Why heat pumps?
Heat pumps are significantly more efficient than traditional boilers and use electricity, which is cleaner than gas. They provide comfortable, reliable heating and will reduce your home’s carbon footprint. Heat pumps could also help you save money on energy bills and they require less maintenance.
Did you know over a quarter of carbon emissions in Bristol come from using gas boilers to heat homes and hot water?

There are lots of things to consider when thinking about getting a heat pump. We’ll help ensure you’ve got what you need to make an informed decision.
Through Bristol Heat Pump Ready, we’re offering:
During each step of the journey a skilled home retrofit assessor from CSE will guide you through the process, taking time to understand your unique household situation and answer any questions about your home or the Bristol Heat Pump Ready scheme. As you progress, we will check in at key points to ensure you have all the necessary details to make a well-informed decision about your next steps.
Our experts will conduct a thorough home survey worth £1,000 to identify the best heat pump for your home and calculate its running costs. We’ll also identify energy efficient home improvements that could help reduce your bills. And the best part? We’re offering this survey at a heavily discounted cost, so you’ll save big while taking a significant step towards a more energy efficient home.
For just £100 you’ll have a home heating survey from Veritherm, a trusted local company. You’ll find out where your home loses and retains heat leading to receiving a heat pump that’s perfectly sized for your home. This prevents the problems of having a heat pump that’s too small and doesn’t heat properly, or one that’s too big and costs more than necessary. Unlike traditional calculations, this survey uses sensors in your home for better accuracy. It also suggests other energy-efficient improvements to lower your bills and is yours to keep whether you choose to install a heat pump or not. Find out more about why measuring home heat loss before deciding on a heat pump is so important.
Once you have had a home heating survey, we’ll advise on additional works that may need to be carried out ahead of a heat pump installation and help you plan your next steps.
Gain access to a directory of vetted local heat pump installers supported by independent sustainable construction experts, The Green Register, ensuring you work with reputable professionals committed to delivering high-quality results.

You may be eligible for a £5,000 contribution towards the installation of your heat pump. Subject to criteria, householders may also be able to access low interest loans from Lendology to help spread the cost of financing your new heat pump.
We’ll continue to support you even after the installation, ensuring your heat pump works well and heats your home efficiently.
Above all, this package has been designed to ensure you can make an informed decision about your home and needs at every stage. You’ll be able to explore all the benefits and impacts of a heat pump to fully understand if it’s right for your home.
