HHIC launch another installer resource to help educate consumers on water treatment

The Heating and Hotwater Industry Council (HHIC) has today launched a consumer guide to water treatment, to assist the installer when educating their customers on how to maintain their central heating system.

‘Protecting your boiler and heating system’ details the important role that water treatment can play in ensuring a central heating system performs as expected, and continues to do so. Neil Macdonald, Technical Manager, HHIC, said:

“This guide serves as another tool that installers can use to educate consumers, and provide them with the information necessary to get the most out of their heating system.”

He added:

“It’s vital, for warranty purposes and general efficiency, that heating systems are effectively cleaned at the time of installation, and also checked at regular intervals to ensure that system debris, sludge and corrosion cannot block or restrict the boiler waterways and its functional hydraulic parts. This guide also reminds consumers to ensure their installer completes the Benchmark commissioning documentation to confirm that this has been done.”
