As the world strives to reduce its carbon emissions, the transition to renewable technologies, such as heat pumps and solar PV, is not just a trend but a necessity. However, for sole trader installers looking to enter this burgeoning market, the journey can be daunting.

Although in the UK, the general mood towards electrification of heating is, perhaps, a challenge, sales of solar and heat pumps are growing year on year. That’s where manufacturers like Mixergy can step in by developing technologies that are adaptable to this changing market, that are easy for installers to fit and maintain, backed by crucial training, support and resources to help them embrace renewables and succeed in business.

Training for success
One of the initial challenges for installers venturing into renewables is acquiring the necessary skills and knowledge. Manufacturers can play a pivotal role by providing comprehensive training programmes tailored to specific technologies. At Mixergy, for example, we offer training courses that cover everything from product installation and maintenance to industry regulations, troubleshooting and system optimisation.

By equipping installers with the expertise and confidence they need to carry out high-quality installations, they will increase their customers’ satisfaction and trust in renewable solutions. Our support doesn’t end when the training course finishes – we’re here to give technical support whenever it is required.

Business support for growth
In a competitive market, generating leads and effectively marketing the services they offer are essential to the success of the installer’s business success. At Mixergy, we can provide our network of Approved Installers with access to marketing resources, and help them grow their existing customer bases by providing leads. This will help them secure more projects and grow their businesses.

Importance of moving into renewables
For heating installers, embracing renewables isn’t just about staying ahead of the curve – it’s about future-proofing their business. With growing awareness of climate change and increasing demand for sustainable solutions, renewable energy technologies represent the future of the energy sector. By diversifying their offerings and aligning with the shift toward clean energy, installers position themselves for long-term viability and relevance in a changing market landscape.

Mixergy can help with this transition. Our hot water cylinders can be installed now and upgraded any time in the future to work with heat pumps or solar PV. This means that customers who are not yet ready to invest in those technologies right now can upgrade their cylinder now, take advantage of the energy savings they’ll make straightaway by only heating the water they need and scheduling to coincide with smart energy tariffs, knowing that their cylinder is futureproofed!

And finally…
In the journey towards a sustainable future, installers play a vital role as frontline ambassadors of renewable energy. Partnering with manufacturers that provide comprehensive training, business support, and marketing assistance, will help them to navigate the transition into renewables with confidence and competence. We can help them have discussions with their customers that will drive the adoption of clean energy solutions, realising the vision of a greener, more sustainable future. This will help with growing trust from consumers, and in turn, deliver more work for our installers.
