Yorkshire Heat Pumps is celebrating a successful first year of trading.
Since its launch in July 2013 with a £50,000 investment, the Blubberhouses-based company has completed five installations in domestic, commercial and district heating settings, using ground source, air source and biomass boilers, and reports a full order book for September.
Owner Michael Wright said: “Setting up the business was pretty daunting and there have been a number of hoops to jump through in terms of achieving the stringent standards the industry demands. We now hold all the necessary accreditations including Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) and Renewable Energy Consumer Code (RECC) memberships, so customers can be confident they are working with a recognised and trustworthy installer.
“When we started, one industry opinion leader told us not to expect any orders in our first year of trading, so to have completed several, as diverse as these, is a real achievement. We have some really interesting installations lined up too, including a golf club and even a convent!”
