Logic4training's new heat meter training course is for installers working on Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) installations where heat metering is required. The Heat Meter training course covers the knowledge and understanding needed to select, position, install and commission heat energy meters and their associated components.

  • Duration: 0.5 Days
  • Price: £125.00 Ex VAT

With the introduction of the domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) introduced in early 2014 offering funding for renewable heating systems (although not solar thermal), Ofgem determined that it would be necessary to offer the tariff payments based on estimated heat use or generation. Where it is not possible to make an estimate, the scheme requires a heat meter to be installed, which regularly submits readings to work out how much the customer is owed.

Logic4training’s QCF Level 2 Award in the Principles of Metering for Renewable Heat Installations course is designed to fully equip installers with the principles and best practice of thermal meter technology and easily identify installations where it is mandatory.

Logic Certification has published a QCF Heat Metering qualification and can be recognised by MCS as evidence of competence to install and maintain heat meters.

Logic4training’s Heat Meter training course is a natural progression route for plumbers and heating engineers.

 

Heat meters are currently required in the following scenarios:

  • If there is a back-up space heating system in the property. I.e. an eligible renewable heating system installed alongside another fossil-fuel space heating system.
  • If the heating system combines a heat pump with a fossil fuel system, like a gas boiler within the same product.
  • If the biomass boiler or stove has an installation capacity which does not provide 100 per cent of the space heating requirement.
  • If the property was occupied for less than 183 days of the previous year.

There are no prerequisites for the new qualification, but learners should have an understanding of the legislation and requirements affecting the renewable heat sector, including the RHI, as well as knowledge of renewable wet heating and hot water technologies and system. The qualification also covers retrospective installations that are moving across to the RHI.
