UK – Ground Heat were the worthy recipients of the prestigious heat pump installer of the year award at last Thursday’s National ACR & Heat Pump awards ceremony in Birmingham. The award was collected by the managing director of the company, Dave Thompson.
Receiving the award, Mr Thompson took the time to reflect briefly on his experience and background in the career. Mr Thompson revealed that he had started installing heat pumps over twelve years ago when, as Installations Manager for a plumbing and heating company, he was called out to look at a heat pump on behalf of Ice Energy .
Mr Thompson disclosed that from that moment, heat pumps became his hobby and passion alongside domestic and commercial gas installations and that he had travelled the length and breadth of the country to gain as much experience as he could. The managing director of Ground Heat conceded that he had been lucky that the gas side of the business was able to support his foray into the ground source heat pump industry.
In addition to the award to Ground Heat, the jury also highly commended Matrix Energy Systems while Bryan Jones, Total NRG, the TGE Group, Be Green, Finn Geotherm and Glevum Heating all qualified as finalists in this ultra-competitive category.
