Nathan Gambling BetaTeach

In this episode Nathan speaks with Adam Chapman from https://heatgeek.com/ about his experience with becoming MCS accredited. It's often heard how MCS is very complex for a heating engineer to undertake so Adam tries to help alleviate any of the mystery.

Adam is finding the process enjoyable and hopefully we will see many more smaller companies and sole traders obtain MCS. However, we discuss how the green homes grant, which has driven up demand for technologies such as solar thermal heating systems and heat pumps has also created a bottleneck as installers now need to have trustmark accreditation also.

You will hear Nathan and Adam discuss how a new installer may struggle to find a suitable first installation which wil be assessed by MCS because of the GHG and its attachment to trustmark.

Take a listen and enjoy
