When choosing an installer to install a renewable energy technology in your home you should use an MCS certified installer. In this way, you know your installer must adhere to high technical standards when installing your system.
Furthermore, using a MCS certified installer is often a prerequisite of many Government and financial incentives like the Domestic RHI, Green Homes Grant and the Smart Export Guarantee.
By choosing an MCS certified installer you know that they will also be a member of a Chartered Trading Standards Institute approved consumer code like RECC or HIES. These consumer codes set out high standards of consumer protection and cover how an installer should sell, what should be in the contract, after sales and so on (consumer codes cover domestic installs only).
Should something go wrong with your renewable energy technology installation and you not be able to resolve the issue with the installer, you may be able to turn to the installer’s MCS certification body or consumer code for help.
RECC has further tips for consumer on how to choose the right installer and make sure you are as protected as much as possible here. You can search for an MCS certified installer here.
