Retrofit West: Building Connections Part 2 – Air Source Heat Pumps

Wed 17th July | 6pm - 8pm | Bath College Somer Valley Campus, Radstock

We are calling out to trades people (especially boiler engineers and plumbers) interested in learning new skills, winning more business and being a part of the solution to the climate emergency.

This completely free event will give you an introduction to the retrofit opportunities out there as well as information about how to get free accredited retrofit training.

Our first event, focused on fabric first, was a huge success and we can’t wait to host the next edition with a focus on air source heat pumps (ASHP) and mechanical ventilation heat recovery (MVHR).

Other future events will focus on ground source heat pumps, fabric first, solar PV, battery storage, water heating and carbon accounting.

There is the option to stick around for a more in depth talk and technical demonstrator sessions.

Sustainably sourced food and refreshments will be provided.
