Practical Installer to be a star draw at Ecobuild

The Practical Installer arena promises to be the biggest visitor attraction at Ecobuild 2013.
Produced by Plumb Center in association with Ecobuild, Practical Installer is a unique ‘working’ showcase demonstrating the installation and operation of renewable and energy efficiency products in a retro-fit environment – complete with an illustration of energy saving and financial support provided via Green Deal, Feed-in Tariff and Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).
One of the most popular attractions at Ecobuild in previous years, Practical Installer promises to be even more exciting in 2013.  Live demonstrations on how to fit technologies such as solar thermal and heat pumps will be combined with key aspects of a Green Deal assessment and domestic RHI. Visitors to Practical Installer will be able to see real life ‘before and after’ scenarios highlighting the impact on a property’s energy efficiency – and the economic benefits – resulting from the installation of specific products.
Heating installers have always been the focus of Practical Installer demonstrations, with 90% of Ecobuild visitors last year rating these ‘very useful’.  At this unique event the industry’s leading manufacturers – including Vaillant, Honeywell, Grundfos, Baxi, Kingspan, Worcester Bosch, Grant, Glow-worm and JA Solar – will come together to show how, in a retro-fit environment, these technologies integrate with products already familiar to installers.
Simon Allan, Plumb Center’s Renewables Director said: “We’ve listened to feedback from installers, and the 2013 Practical Installer will be packed with practical installation demonstrations of technologies from the industry’s leading brands.  Most importantly, these demonstrations will show the energy savings and Green Deal calculations for each technology fitted.”
Registration is now open for free tickets to Ecobuild, which runs from 5-7 March 2013, online at
