Over two-thirds of installers want to install heat pumps 

According to research commissioned by Intergas Heating Solutions in February 2023 over 70% of installers want to install heat pumps but aren’t trained to do so and 95% don’t have the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) accreditation necessary to access the BUS grants (or the Smart Export Guarantee) on behalf of their customers.  

When asked which renewable heating system they’d choose for their own home (between air source heat pump, ground source heat pump, an electric boiler or a hybrid system), 74% said they’d rather fit a hybrid heating system.  

Speaking about the research, Terri Hickman, Intergas Marketing Communications Manager (pictured) said: “There’s a lot of assumed knowledge about our industry and we wanted to ask installers directly how they felt about specific environmental issues, especially now as we’re all having to cope with increased economic pressures. The information we’ve gained will help inform our decisions going forward.” 

The survey also revealed that 64% of installers feel ill-informed about the climate-driven changes affecting the HVAC industry.
