Focus falls on heat pumps


t has become clear that heat pumps are set to take the principal role in the decarbonisation of heating, particularly in new build and off-grid properties. Following recommendations from the Committee on Climate Change, the Prime Minister’s 10-point-plan for a Green industrial Revolution set a target to install 600,000 heat pumps a year by 2028. This is a mammoth task considering the much lower number that are currently being installed, and the training of installers that will need to be undertaken.

As the industry braces for this mass roll- out, those in the know are preparing for what is to come and you can find out more about the efforts in our biannual Heat Pump Supplement which starts on pg 25. Heat Pump Association chairman Phil Hurley examines the scale of the challenges ahead which he believes can be met with the right interventions from both government and industry.

The Heat Pump Guide also offers insight into the manufacturers serving the UK market and their product ranges. In addition it covers ancillary products and is interspersed with a number of heat pump case studies/success stories.

This month we also feature water heating, maintenance, fans and HVAC in schools.

Cutting edge heat & vent I


ntelligent remote monitoring and control technology from building management systems (BMS) provider Vericon Systems is helping South Cambridgeshire District Council realise the operational and financial benefits of ‘connected’ boiler control. As part of a new trial agreement, the council has installed a small number of Vericon’s BCM devices in its tenants homes to enable the remote monitoring not only of a boiler’s health and condition in real time, but also the ability to predict when the boiler might fail in the future. The devices are monitored and managed via Vericon’s online portal, with performance data that can be recorded and analysed to predict and identify common failures such as low pressure, electrical or mechanical parts failures and even frozen condensate pipes.

Chris Brown, senior heating surveyor at South Cambridgeshire District Council, says the council is always striving to create greater efficiencies: “Tenant engagement is always high on our list of priorities. We’re particularly interested in new, smart technology and solutions that make diagnosing and fixing boilers more efficient for us and effortless for our tenants.”
