CPD Presentations

With over 70 years’ experience in the HVAC industry our Continuing Professional Development (CPD) presentations will help you to collect accredited hours whilst giving useful, relevant and up-to-date information on how to improve the way that you specify the systems within your buildings.

Below is a summary of the CPD topics we cover. For more details on how to arrange one of these sessions with our team, please contact us.

How smart can electric heating be?

This presentation demonstrates the demand for electric heating products in relation to the many environmental policy changes affecting our industry. It includes the many features and benefits of smart electric products, and their potential uses for meeting environmental the targets of the future. Smart Electric Thermal Storage Heating can be used in all types of dwellings, and should be a consideration for all housing professionals.

Housing developers, architects, energy and social housing professionals will gain a valuable insight into understanding this important consideration which should be made when heating buildings.
