The awards, now in their 15th year, highlight best practice from installers who are making strides to conserve the environment by embracing high efficiency heating solutions and renewable technologies during their work.
Paul Greaves from FirstCall Home Assist a Worcester Bosch accredit installer stated that “With the rising costs of energy bills and the commitment by Scottish Government to reduce carbon emissions, we invest in our staff to make sure they are fully accredited and educated in the energy schemes to ensure our customers have access to the best environmental solutions”.
Carl Arntzen, Worcester’s managing director, said: “The Environment 2020 awards are our chance to celebrate the industry’s champions of efficient and renewable technologies. The fact that so many people are committed to protecting our planet for future generations is inspiring, and year on year I am impressed by the calibre of the entries we receive. Our Environment 2020 Awards have been a huge success since their introduction back in 1999 and we look forward already to seeing more examples of excellent installation and specification work when we begin judging entries next year.”
Firstcall Home Assist are a Scottish supplier who are Government registered and can provide new boilers and all the paper work to allow claims under the HEEPs scheme. Firstcall core policy that actively looks for ways to bring customers the most cost effective way to benefit from energy efficiency measures fits perfectly with the HEEPS scheme. The scheme means consumers don’t have to miss out on the reduced costs that come from energy measures like insulation, new boilers, and renewables.
Firstcall Home Assists boiler can install a new boiler from as little as £17 per month which means by installing a new Worcester boiler with Firstcall the customer can actually save around £30 per month.
