Neil Hope, Head of Installer Development at NIBE Energy Systems
Are you currently installing gas and oil boilers into people’s homes? Already aware of the fundamentals of heating, you are the ideal candidate for NIBE Pro – a streamlined training route designed to guide heating and plumbing installers through the process of becoming an accredited heat pump installer.
Wondering why this is so important? Fossil fuel heating systems are set to be phased out in new homes from 2025, and a target from the Government means that 600,000 heat pumps will need to be installed per year by 2028. Moreover, the government intends to phase out gas boilers altogether. Being a competent gas or oil heating installer will no longer be enough.
New skills and expertise will need to be gained at the earliest opportunity – and you can learn everything you need to know by becoming a NIBE Pro.
Your NIBE Pro journey will lead you to become an MCS certified heat pump installer whilst unlocking rewards and benefits along the way. But it will now also enable you to deliver a brand-new selection of innovative products and solutions to help your customers make the most of their heat pump system.
Following the launch of NIBE’s latest products, here are three new reasons heating and plumbing installers should join NIBE Pro.
Offer Your Customers a Complete Energy Efficient Solution
As a NIBE Pro, you can now offer your customers a NIBE PV package so that they can power their heating system using free energy from the sun. Solar PV can help to cover the electricity consumption of heat pumps, removing any worries the household may have around rising electricity prices, and you can also empower them to earn a revenue through the Smart Export Guarantee for supplying a surplus portion of electricity back to the National Grid.
Full NIBE Solar PV Panels
The NIBE PV package is comprised of monocrystalline silicone cell panels using PERC technology for maximum efficiency, available in eight sizes with an elegant all-black design. Each base package consists of 10 panels with a nominal power of 3.6 kW, mounting parts and a suitable inverter with a communication module, all of which are ready for installation.
Help Your Customers Make the Most of Their Heat Pump
People are always looking for smart ways to make life simpler, and advancements in technology mean that you can now help people to save time, energy and money through the use of smart home accessories that deliver comfort through connectivity.
NIBE Smart Accessories
Complementing the NIBE S Series range of heat pumps, our product range now includes wireless smart home accessories to provide more comfortable, precise room-by-room or ‘zone by zone’ climate control. Included in the range is a new repeater plus, temperature humidity sensor, carbon dioxide sensor, room thermostat, and room unit.
Make Your Life Easier through Remote Connectivity
NIBE Pro Installers can benefit from the NIBE myUplink Pro app, which offers a range of functions to help with the commissioning, monitoring and diagnosis of heat pumps, and smart solutions to reduce the need for site visits.
myUplink: The Key to Connectivity
Your customers can also benefit from the myUplink app too, easily controlling monitoring their heat pump from their smart phone. Once the smart accessories are connected to the S Series heat pump and the zones have been established, this data can be provided room by room to offer greater precision and comfort.
