Renewable heating systems have become an important area for the building services industry. Understanding how to provide these sources, systems and applications is seen as key in meeting the future needs of both commercial and domestic heating.

Expertise is vital to renewables success and so Pipelife is delighted to offer a range of courses that have been specifically designed to provide experienced heating, plumbing, installation and building professionals with a real understanding of the potential for renewable energy sources, installation and their application.

Relevant and practical

Relevant, practical, industry-leading training courses are delivered at our state-of-the-art academy in Cork or Dublin by fully qualified professionals in a relaxed, informal environment.

The courses are free to attend and will be led by members of our technical team who have a wealth of practical knowledge and installation practices, and feature a detailed tour of the Pipelife manufacturing facility where visitors are given the opportunity to see first-hand where our products are designed and manufactured.

The free courses will be available to installers, service engineers, plumbers, merchants, architects, local authorities and BER Assessors. By offering a valuable insight into each of our heating technologies, those who attend our courses will be equipped with the best product knowledge and installation techniques, ensuring that our customers are fully satisfied. We are also a registered training provider with Engineers Ireland.

Padjoe Barry, national sales manager, said: "These are really exciting times for Pipelife, we have always had a strong focus on providing a great service to all our customers and with the launch of our new Renewable Training Academy this will allow us to support them with hands-on product training and installation techniques. The company is determined to offer contractors and installers the skills, support and service they need to thrive in the renewable heating sector.

“Two major things that we offer – that are not standard in the industry – are a 50-year guarantee on all our manufactured pipe products and extended warranties on all our traded products,” he said 

“We give full design indemnity insurance on all our designs for underfloor heating and heat pump systems. We also provide full electrical drawings and full layout drawings for the piping and manifold locations and settings. When you get a job from us, everything is specified, and the contractor can talk to the actual designer. If any problem occurs after the home-owner takes possession of the house, we are still available.

“We’ve been around for 50 years, and we are willing to stand over the quality of our pipes to give a further 50-year assurance. We stand over the quality of our traded products because we only take in heat pumps and fittings from people we have vetted ourselves.
