Heating Installer Awards

It was in the Autumn of 2015 that Refresh identified a gap in the market, and went on to establish, develop and launch the Heating Installer Awards, with the aim of raising the credibility, and celebrating the achievements, of plumbers and heating installers across the UK. It has since established itself as the award for installers across the UK to win.

At the time the awards had no real competition which meant that the only real challenge was one at our end: we solely focused on PR and this was a much wider job. So we made it work, and in the process widened our skills set to include design, web development, e-marketing, lead generation and event management.

“I’m really impressed with the team at Refresh and how well they supported the Heating Installer Awards. There was great involvement from beginning to end, and loads of great value stuff. Five stars from me. Well done.” Marc Smith, South West winner in 2019

We secured sponsorship from some of the leading manufacturers in the industry, thanks to our experience and contact base. This ensured the awards would be free of charge to enter, and attend, for plumbers and heating installers.

We then quickly harnessed the power of social media influencers within this sector, using their support to champion the awards and encourage entries. You’ll now find the awards on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.

Pulling in entries from every region of the UK is something we’ve honed over the years, as is the judging day and winner’s event which we host at the trade show InstallerLive each May. 

We evolve the awards each year, bringing in new elements to keep it fresh and relevant. From our sponsors we also gain fantastic prizes, which have included a trip for the winner to the Danfoss HQ in Denmark, new boilers, workwear, vouchers and tools.

We look forward to working with the team at Refresh going forward." Sarah Baker, Stelrad
