As their popularity has grown, so has the amount of suppliers offering to install such products, but not all of them are as reliable as they claim to be.
A good installer should listen to your needs and then give their honest opinion as to whether ground source heat pumps, air source heat pumps or water source heat pumps will be most suitable for your requirements. Each of these pumps has their own individual benefits and what may suit one home, may be completely out of place in another.
They should thoroughly assess your home and only then will they have an idea as to what will suit it best, to do otherwise is just a sign of guess work and could have little effect, as well be a waste of your money.

This will then give you a footing from which to work from when you first approach an installer and will show them that you know what you are talking about, decreasing the chances of you being ripped off.
Your chosen installer should also be recognized appropriately by the relevant industry body in case anything ever goes wrong or you find yourself unsatisfied with the work done.
