Once you’ve worked out what kind of heating system is right for your home, you’ll need to find someone to fit it. We recommend you use an installer who is certified under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS). All installers or suppliers should be able to provide a detailed breakdown of the specification and costs of their proposed system.
We recommend you get at least three quotes from three different installers. Don’t compare installers on cost alone – the cheapest may not be the best option. There are lots of review sites online where you can see how other customers have rated a company.
Depending on the kind of property and installation, you may also need to get planning permission or a building warrant from your local planning authority. Make sure you have the right permissions in place before beginning installation.
Finally, check with your home insurance provider to make sure your policy covers the changes to your home and make any adjustments you need.
