Installers should keep up with their training to stay on top in the current climate

As homeowners continue to look for new ways to save money on their heating bills, heating control expert, Honeywell, is reminding installers of the need to keep on top of the latest legislation and products available to them, in a bid to stay ahead in the market.

In most cases, the installer decides on the type of heating control fitted when carrying out any changes to a property's heating system, meaning that installers are best placed to educate their customers on the solution that offer the greatest energy and cost saving potential.



So for an installer, understanding the customer benefits associated with heating controls is just as important as being aware of how they must comply with legislations. Honeywell installer training days have been designed to offer in-depth information on installation best practice, detailed wiring demonstrations and practical sessions. The days also offer advice on the different products available, when and where to use them, how to use them, guidance on installing wireless thermostats; and information on the latest changes to Part L of the building regulations - including zoning.   



Austen Wheldon of Austen Wheldon Heating and Plumbing Ltd commented: "I found the Honeywell installer training course really useful, it has given me more confidence in wiring different components. The staff were very helpful and friendly, which made it easy to ask questions. I would highly recommend this course to other installers."



Andy Mansfield, marketing communications manager at Honeywell added: "It is vital that in the current climate we help the installer to help the homeowner generate the savings on their energy bills which they need. As an installer, being able to educate homeowners and offer guidance on the best system suited to their house, as well as teach them how best to utilise their heating controls to work efficiently to suit their lifestyle is crucial. "Honeywell is committed to training installers to help them drive more business back to themselves as well as ease the pressure on homeowners, which is exactly what our installer training days have been designed to do."
