Key industry issues being debated via free regional workshops...

What installers need to know about the future of heating  and the new British Standard BS 7593:2019

We have partnered with Altecnic, the UK's leading supplier of hydronic solutions, to host a set of free regional workshops to update the installer regarding the future of heating and the new British Standard BS 7593:2019.

The Future of Heating
There have been a number of recent developments which are going to impact the future of the heating industry. These include the 2050 carbon neutral target, the recent report from the Committee on Climate Change recommending an end to the connection of new homes to the gas grid, and the Chancellor’s Spring Statement where he announced the intention to end fossil-fuel heating systems in all new houses from 2025.

In light of these developments, APHC are going to take a look at what this means for the industry and in particular what this means for the installer. We are hosting a set of free regional workshops in September where we will dive into the practicalities of these announcements in terms of what new technologies will likely be available, what the likely types of alternative fuels will be, what this will mean for current boilers and central heating systems, what the future training requirements and skills development requirements will be, and ultimately what the potential threats and opportunities will be for installers.

New British Standard BS 7593:2019
APHC Supplier Member Altecnic, will also be presenting a workshop focusing on what installers need to know and do regarding the new British Standard BS 7593:2019 which is concerned with the preparation, commissioning and maintenance of domestic heating and cooling water systems.

Quality Plumber Week 2019
The workshop will also include an overview of Quality Plumber Week which will run between 7 and 13 October and aims to champion the diverse skills of plumbing and heating contractors and celebrate the important role they play in keeping people healthy and safe.

In addition to celebrating this important work, Quality Plumber Week aims to raise awareness of what poor mental health is, and the effects it can have. Plumbing and heating contractors form a part of the construction industry in which male site workers are three times more likely to take steps to end their life as compared with males in the general population.

We are using the workshops as a platform to promote this year’s campaign, but more information and details of how the industry can get involved are available at www.QualityPlumberWeek.co.uk.

The workshops will run between 9am and 12pm as follows:
