When it comes to installing Ground Source or Air Source Heat Pumps it is important to find the right company for the job. There are some basic rules to follow to which will make sure the technology you install is the right one of for your home, it is sized correctly, installed correctly and all your after-sales care, including servicing and maintenance, is in place.
Here’s our simple guide to finding that Specialist Heat Pump Installer:
- The key to finding a Specialist Heat Pump Installer is checking their accreditation. A Specialist Heat Pump Installer works to a national standard and is audited by a government body, the MCS (Microgeneration Certification Scheme).
- Using an MCS accredited installer also gives you access to the RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive) this is a yearly payment from the government to subsidise your installation.
- The Specialist Heat Pump Installer will send a surveyor who will conduct a full survey of your property. This information will then be used to create an accurate Heat Loss Report. This Heat Loss Report and the calculations within it will also be in line with MCS regulations.
- It is important that a specialist heat pump installer is not only MCS accredited, but also manufacturer trained to install the heat pumps they are offering. This offers a few very important benefits, i) a solid manufacturers’ guarantee that will be honoured because the installation will be completed in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines not off a You Tube video!; ii) extended manufacturers’ guarantees; iii) a future-proof installation that works long term covering your servicing and maintenance requirements.
