Heat Geek sets out heat pump ‘business in a box’

Sustainable energy start-up Heat Geek is on a mission to decarbonise homes through heat pumps nationally and has raised £4.2 million in funding. Its new digital platform provides heating engineers with a ‘business in a box, providing training, innovative technology and a pipeline of paying customers.

Heat Geek’s mission is to bring together energy engineering, business and technology, and the creation and growth of its community of installers has been key to its success so far. There are 1,000 trained installers across the UK.

CEO Aadil Qureshi says: “At the heart of our business is a shared obsession with empowering everyone in the UK to upgrade their home and save money every month. But one of the biggest issues facing mass uptake of heat pumps is a lack of skilled installers.

“Our solution is simple: train thousands of existing heating engineers and give them the skills, knowledge and tools to unlock the support for thousands of homeowners wanting to decarbonise their homes and save money on their energy bills.”

The online platform features tools including a digital surveying and system design process, a training and community hub, MCS accreditation, plus an end-to-end digital journey for homeowner – all of which help to ensure high-efficiency heat pump installations, says the company.

Founder Adam Chapman says: “Heat Geek is built to support engineers running their own businesses at the heart of communities across the country. Our focus is empowering local heating engineers that have been keeping homeowners warm for decades. These engineers are best placed to upskill and guide their customers on the journey to adopt heat pumps.”
