As energy costs in the home continue to escalate and people make a conscious decision to live a greener lifestyle, there has been a growing demand for renewable technologies in and around the home over the last few years.
The government’s Green Deal initiative is also expected to see demand for renewable technologies such as solar panels, heat pumps, small scale generators and district heating systems grow substantially.
Installing renewable or green technologies can save householders hundreds of pounds off their annual fuel bill. Some technologies even allow you to earn an income via government funded initiatives such as the Feed in Tariff (FIT) and Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).
NICEIC provides certification to businesses involved in the installation of renewable technologies and work under the Green Deal scheme.
Choosing a registered contractor with the appropriate certification is a homeowner’s best way to ensure any work is carried out to a professional level. It also provides guarantees that the contractor’s work has been checked and assessed to various standards.
