Why use a HETAS Registered installer?
Peace of mind
HETAS registered installers are trained and assessed as competent so you can have faith in their work.
It saves you time
HETAS registered installers can self-certificate their work which means that you can avoid the need for time consuming and expensive building notice applications to the local authority.
It is simpler
A Certificate of Compliance will be issued as a record of the job and that it complies with Building Regulations. A copy of the certificate is forwarded to HETAS who notify the local authority on your behalf.
It is cheaper
There will not be any additional fees for the issue of the Certificate of Compliance. This saves you costly Building Notice applications to the local authority of approximately £300.
If you are looking to sell your house any new purchasers will require a HETAS installation certificate or building regulation certificate of compliance to state your stove has been safely installed. You could face extra work and legal bills to prove this if you have not used a HETAS approved engineer or sought building compliance. In the worst case you would have to uninstall a stove and reinstall with appropriate compliance.
