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

What does the future hold for boiler maintenance and industry schemes?

Get involved, be informed, and have your say!

Following the rise in popularity of extended boiler warranties, APHC have teamed up with Worcester Bosch to highlight a worrying trend towards consumers opting to not have their boilers serviced on a regular basis as they appear to be taking the view that manufacturers will cover any potential issues under the warranty.

The future of boiler maintenance – The extended warranty effect

Worcester will be speaking about how boiler manufacturers will be applying the terms and conditions of their warranties more stringently and how boiler servicing and preventative maintenance will evolve to incorporate the whole system in terms of balancing, water quality maintenance and the proactive replacement of wearable parts.

The future of industry schemes

With a number of crucial developments and government announcements regarding TrustMark, ECO (Energy Company Obligation) and Microgeneration Certification Scheme, APHC’s Technical Services Manager will be giving an overview of what these developments mean for plumbing and heating contractors and what the future looks like for industry schemes including Competent Person Schemes, Microgeneration Certification Scheme, TrustMark, Green Deal and ECO.
