Leading heat pump distributor Secon Renewables is launching a design service to guide installers, builders and merchants through the equipment selection process.
The initiative will allow Secon to offer a complete solution to the new-build sector, while also supporting installers who are new to the renewables industry.
Secon’s Heating Design Service will be available to customers who place an order for a heat pump and cylinder package and aims to ensure the correct information is available in order to size heat pumps, underfloor heating and radiators correctly.
Managing Director Kevin Carling said: “With our expansion into the new-build market and speaking to companies in this sector, we have seen a desire for a one-stop solution where the contractor can get everything from a single source.
“Our design offer not only saves them time but also gives them the confidence that all the products they get are designed to meet the building’s needs. We all know there is a shortage of installers in this sector and we need to make the transition for traditional fossil fuel installers to start installing heat pumps as seamless as possible.’’
Once an order is placed, the client then completes a data capture form and forwards all drawings and information to Secon, who will prepare the necessary calculations and drawings and return an indemnified design to the customer. This process is expected to take 10-15 days.
Areas covered by the design service include:
- Building heat loss calculations
- Radiator sizing
- Underfloor heating designs
- Pipework runs and sizing (new-build)
Secon began life as a solar thermal company in 1998 and has since diversified to become one of the biggest specialist heat pump distributors in the UK. Its product range also features underfloor heating, the latest in solar thermal technology and a complete range of heat pump ancillaries.
Along with partner company AUK Heating and Cooling Distribution, Secon recently moved to their new head office and warehouse which is almost five-times the size of its previous base and stocks in excess of 250 heat pumps, 300 cylinders and 600 buffer vessels.
