Renewable energy consumer code

When underfloor Heating systems are connected to renewable heat generating appliances, they really come into place as far as sustainability is concerned. Whilst fossil fuels have been used traditionally, renewable energy sources are increasingly being used. Underfloor heating on it’s own is already much more energy efficient than conventional heating systems because it runs at a much lower temrerature setting for the same roontemperature and comfort level. As more and more home owners, property developers and social housing associations are realising this it is good to know that there is now the RECC or the renewable energy conumer code that assures the highest standards of service.

 

Incognito has been installing underfloor heating in Scotland for over 10 years now and complies to the Renewable Energy Consumer Code or RECC. The RECC recognises that most people are not experts in renewable energy technologies and need help in working out which is the most suitable system and how to get the best from it. The code covers various technologies including heat pumps that are usually connected to underfloor heating systems. 

The code advises people to follow these tips:

  • make sure to get at least three quotes before deciding to contract a company
  • read the guidelines before you sign the contract or pay a deposit
  • never pay more than 25% up front and make sure it is protected
  • remember that you can cancel a contract withinn 14 days when it was signed with a company represenbtative in your home
  • make sure you receive any estimate of the output from the system and the finacial benefits from it clearly in writing before you sign it
  • make sure any testimonials are genuine by contacting the people yourself

You can find more detail about the Renewable Energy Consumer Code on their website: RECC.
