Design of Heat Pump Systems OFT21 – 504D

OFT21 – 504D

Heating our homes currently accounts for a huge 13-14% of the UK’s total carbon emissions. An Air Source Heat Pump is a low-carbon way of heating your home. They absorb heat from the outside air and use it to increase the temperature in the home. Air source heat pumps are positioned outdoors, at the side or back of the property and need plenty of space around them for air to circulate.

Success on this course will enable you to become an approved installer, registered on the MCS website. This will enable you to draw down funding for your customers. For more information please see here: MCS
