Lisa-Jayne Cook was awarded the coveted RACHP Woman of the Year award last night at the 12th National Air Conditioning, Refrigeration and Heat Pump Awards. At the same time, Belfast-based HVAC supplier Exi-tite Group collected two awards for Non-domestic Air Source Project and Wholesaler / Distributor of the Year, and R A Brown Heating Services were awarded Heat Pump Installer of the Year and Domestic Air Source Project of the Year.


In front of a sold-out crowd at the Midland Hotel, Manchester, singer Stephen Tanner and returning comedian Rod Woodward provided entertainment, leading to a fantastic evening for all involved.


With over 100 award entries across the 14 categories, this year's competition was as tight as ever, with returning entrants and many new names participating. The judging panel too involved new faces to give the process a fresh approach.
