Mark Vitow Sponsors APHC’s Quality Plumber Week

 In Plumbing and Heating Industry

Quality Plumber Week, organised by the Association of Plumbing and Heating Contractors (APHC) kicks off Monday, October 5th and will run through Oct 11th.

The event aims to debate the future of heating through a series of online workshops designed to  provide opportunities for installers to share their thoughts, opinions and views on how the heating market needs to develop in terms of what alternative heat technologies should be at the forefront of government strategy.

The UK has set in law a target to bring all its greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050 and as part of the government’s journey to this 2050 target they have committed to introducing the Future Homes Standard in 2025.  The Future Homes Standard will see changes to Part L and Part F of the Building Regulations for new dwellings to ensure that by 2025 all new build homes will feature low carbon heating and world-leading levels of energy efficiency.

These commitments mean that the heating industry is going to undergo massive change which will have direct consequences for types of heating technologies heating engineers install.

The APHC wants to understand what support installers feel they need from government to help them and the industry move to alternative heating technologies.  APHC will then compile and feed the views of installers directly into government.

Prizes to be awarded for the best heating, plumbing and bathroom installations!

Quality Plumber Week aims to celebrate the important work that plumbing and heating contractors carryout each day.  Installers are encouraged to get involved on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn by posting photos of their work using the hashtag #QPW20.  Mark Vitow Ltd have donated 3 packs from its exclusive product range, each consisting of:
