(PRWEB UK) 6 May 2013
It has been reported in HVP that the HHIC has revealed that sales of boilers in the first quarter of 2013 are 7.1% higher than during the first quarter of 2012. The organisation, which is committed to effectively driving, supporting and promoting the sustained growth of the UK domestic heating and hot water industry, claims that this is a particularly encouraging step for the industry. Director, Roger Webb, explains that the increase is likely due to the prolonged cold weather but that “we hope this upward trend is sustained into the coming months.”
The figures come following news of the introduction of new boiler efficiency standards, designed to save 10% of Europe’s energy consumption.
Renowned for their Liverpool emergency plumbers, Plumber 24 Hours also carry out boiler repairs and servicing, and were pleased to hear of the encouraging new statistics. As well as actively researching industry news, the team place a strong emphasis on raising awareness of gas safety in the home, including the safe installation and maintenance of boilers. A representative explains the importance of getting boilers serviced at least once a year by a Gas Safe registered engineer.
“An annual service is essential for keeping your boiler in good working order. A gas safe registered engineer will undertake a full examination, checking that the heating system is correctly installed according to regulations, as well as check that is it working safely and efficiently according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
"With such a high demand for boiler services when the weather turns colder, it may be a good idea to get one done during the summer months. As always, remember to check that your engineer is Gas Safe registered before you let them undertake any work.”
