Got an interesting heat pump project? Tell Vaillant and Kevin McCloud!

Vaillant has teamed up with British property expert and presenter, Kevin McCloud, to launch the Vaillant Heat Pump Challenge, which is looking for engineers to help showcase how and when heat pumps work at their best.

Vaillant is challenging the industry to submit the most interesting and challenging residential heat pump installations they have been involved with, where many may have initially thought it wouldn’t be feasible or effective. The winning projects will have the chance to film with Kevin McCloud. The company hopes this will demonstrate the wide variety of homes that can have heat pumps fitted, and help answer common questions about the practicalities of installing and living with the technology.

To enter, engineers must create a 30-second video describing their heat pump project and share it on Twitter or Facebook tagging @VaillantUK in the post. They can also share on Instagram tagging All entries must include the hashtag #VaillantHPChallenge

Alternatively, projects can be submitted by emailing details of the project to or using the online form at

All entries should be for UK homes, with projects either in the process of or already having been installed, using a Vaillant heat pump as the main source of hot water and heating. Posts should include the name of the project, any key dates and the name of the contractor/engineer who carried out the work.

Shortlisted entries will be announced in March and reviewed by a panel of industry judges, including Kevin McCloud. Three winning projects will then be filmed, giving entrants the opportunity to discuss the heat pump system in more detail with Kevin – providing a unique opportunity to promote their skills and business.

Entries must be submitted by 17 March 2023.
