Entries are now open and the awards are completely free to enter. Installers are encouraged to submit a case study of a project that demonstrates not only fantastic results, but clever product selection, great customer service, and technical expertise. There is a prize bundle worth over £10,000 on offer for the finalists, including money-can’t-buy prizes from the award’s sponsors.
After entries close in February 2024 an expert judging panel will get together to mark the best entries from each region and specialist category. The panel will include technical specialists from each sponsor as well as representatives from the independent professional body, CIPHE.
The overall winners will then be decided by a combination of judges’ scores, independently reviewed technical challenges and a public vote.
Each of the regional winners will then have the chance to go on to be crowned the national Heating Installer Awards winner 2024, as well as special category winners:
- Rising Star – recognising the industry’s budding apprentices;
- Sustainable Installer (North, South & Midlands) – recognising those who are doing everything they can to minimise the impact of their work on the environment and;
- HVAC Installer – recognising those who are installing full home comfort systems that heat and cool their customer’s homes, as well as improve ventilation and air quality.
Each year, sponsors, winners and shortlisted installers are also invited to a number of in-person events including a kick-off event and a regional winner’s event to celebrate the top talent from each region of the UK.
Nike Lovell, Marketing Director at The IPG, commented: “The IPG is delighted to sponsor the Heating Installer Awards for the first time this year. So much about the awards aligns with our values – in fact, our ethos centres upon supporting independent businesses in the plumbing, heating and bathroom sectors and providing a personal touch, so we can’t wait to build closer relationships with the installer community.
In previous years, we have seen the impact that the awards has on all involved and how it spotlights those who do brilliant work, provide excellent customer service and offer unmatched technical expertise – giving them the recognition that they so truly deserve. We know that talent can often go unrecognised in this industry and to be able to support a scheme that gives so much back to the community is an honour and we look forward to working with the team on an excellent campaign this year.”
The overall winner will be announced at InstallerSHOW 2024, held in the Birmingham NEC, where 2023 champion James Bowen will award the next national winner.
