heatly is looking for input from the heat pump sector and related industries. It is a new software package and supporting app that will make heat pump installation easier, improving consumer confidence and stimulating demand. Set to benefit the whole sector – from manufacturers and installers to trade associations, training providers and energy companies – it is part funded by Department of Energy, Security and Net Zero under the Heat Pump Ready programme.
Utilising the latest technologies to enhance the process of choosing and installing a heat pump, including 30 second room surveying, a simple heat loss calculation tool, 3D visualisation and a single place to view all supporting paperwork, the company will remove installer barriers and improve consumer confidence.
The first version covers the essentials of heat pump installation and is currently being trialled, but there is scope to contribute to the next stages of development before widespread launch in Spring 2024. Once launched, it will provide opportunities for businesses to tailor the look and functionality of the app for their specific requirements.
Thormer Solutions Ltd is calling for a wide variety of organisations across the heat pump supply chain and related industries to invest in the development of this new technology.
Griff Thomas, Managing Director of Thormer Solutions, GTEC, says, “We are at a critical point in the development of heatly, getting it right at this stage will greatly benefit everyone involved in the heat pump supply chain and beyond. We want to hear from businesses and organisations across the sector to understand their challenges and make sure the app meets our industry’s needs.
“Investors will have a unique opportunity to be at the forefront of a potentially game changing tool that could really accelerate support for heat pumps. Accurate specification is so crucial and heatly will massively improve and speed-up this part of the process. High quality installations and the removal of barriers will lead to happy heating engineers and end users essential to driving the market forward.”
