The Heating Installer Awards has announced its 2024 regional and sustainability winners as well as the finalists for its Rising Star and HVAC categories.

The shortlists have been decided by a panel of experts including representatives from the awards’ partners CIPHE, The IPG, Polypipe Building Products, Samsung Climate Solutions and Stelrad, who recently scored all of the entries on their technical expertise, problem-solving, product knowledge and outstanding work.

The panel was also joined by the 2023 Heating Installer Awards national winner, James Bowen from Integral Plumbing, Heating & Renewables Ltd and Most Sustainable winner, Liam Barry from Custom Renewables, who scored their respective categories.

Now in its ninth year, the Heating Installer Awards recognises the achievements and raises the credibility of plumbers and heating installers across the country who deliver excellent work on a daily basis. Targeting every region across the UK, the awards encourage plumbers and installers to nominate a project that they are particularly proud of. The projects demonstrate high technicality, outstanding professionalism and exceptional service - all resulting in a happy customer.
