Entries into the Heating Installer Awards 2022 have now been extended by two weeks, meaning this is the last chance to enter the industry famous Heating Installer Awards.
Designed to champion the heroes of the industry who often go unnoticed, this year the awards returned for a seventh time and aims to recognise installers who go to great lengths to deliver incredible levels of service and the highest quality installations for their customers. Supported by Armacell, Danfoss, CIPHE, LG, Polypipe, Big Wipes and Stelrad, the awards are completely free to enter and give installers the chance to showcase their work to potential customers. There is a prize bundle worth over £10,000 on offer for the finalists, including CIPHE memberships, a toolkit worth £600 and money-can’t-buy prizes from the award’s sponsors, including a trip to Denmark.
This year, the awards will once again recognise winners from each region across the UK, who will then have the chance to go on to be crowned the National Heating Installer Awards winner 2022. The awards will also be searching for two special category winners: Rising Star, for the industry’s best apprentices, and Most Sustainable Installer, which recognises those who are doing everything they can to minimise the impact of their work on the environment.
After entries close in March, an expert judging panel made up of industry professionals and award-winning installers will choose the regional finalists as well as an initial shortlist for the two categories. The overall winners will then be decided by a combination of judges’ scores, peer reviewed technical challenges and a public vote, with the two category winners, the national winner and the runner up announced in June at the NEC.
Grant Gundelfinger, Heating Installer Awards national winner 2021, commented: “I’m so proud to have won the national award. To be honoured by your peers as well as some of the biggest names in the industry is incredibly gratifying and I am so thankful for this recognition. I have seen how winning the award has boosted previous winner’s careers and I am really passionate about improving the industry and sharing knowledge with other installers, so I cannot wait to see what is in store for the future. I would recommend entering the awards to anyone looking to boost their business and network with the best of the best in the industry.”
Carl Ladd, Heating Installer Awards rising star winner 2021, added: “I am truly honoured to have won this award. Plumbing and heating has become a real passion for me and standing alongside the best in the industry, as well as receiving positive feedback from big industry names, was incredible. To win the rising star award against amazingly talented competition has just highlighted that I am on the right track.”
He continued, “If you are thinking about entering the Rising Star category, my best advice is just do it. Be prepared to showcase what you know, be proud of what you do, what you have done and how far you have come. It’s all about the quality of your work, your knowledge, and your commitment to the trade. Throw yourself in, you won’t regret it.”
