Delivering the highest quality installs

With training courses, tools and technologies to assist gas engineers to successfully transition to heat pump work, Heat Geek is a community of independent heating engineers working in renewable technology.

Vaillant manufacturers the aroTHERM plus air-to-water heat pumps (featuring natural refrigerant) which sit at the heart of the majority of Heat Geek installations. As part of a long-term partnership, the Heat Geek platform works with Vaillant technologies to monitor every heat pump they install. Data collected from these monitored installs indicates that Heat Geek installations are running at an average SCOP of 440%, far exceeding the national average and BUS minimum of 280%.

Additional benefits

Further increasing the benefits for both installers and their customers. Heat Geek and Vaillant are now deepening their partnership to deliver:

  • Bespoke access to Vaillant hardware: through the partnership, independent Heat Geek installers will get bespoke access to Vaillant heat pumps through the Heat Geek installations platform.
  • Continuous product and system design feedback: Heat Geek will work with Vaillant’s Product and Service teams to feedback front-line experiences from installers in the network and help prioritise solutions.
  • High quality training: Heat Geek installers will now be able to access Vaillant product specific training as part of the Heat Geek Learn product. Vaillant trainees will have discounted access to the Heat Geek Learn product.
  • Access to rewards and support: all Heat Geek installers will benefit from the Vaillant Advance programme of rewards, including when Heat Geek supply the equipment.

Aadil Qureshi, CEO of Heat Geek said: “We empower installers with training and tools to grow their businesses and help homeowners to upgrade their homes, saving money and carbon.

“We’re delighted to partner with Vaillant due to their industry heritage and product expertise. At Heat Geek, we pride ourselves in putting the best equipment in the hands of top heating engineers to save homeowners money and give heat pumps the backing they deserve.”
