Following an investigation by the MCS Compliance Team, MCS has removed several HERO ground source heat pumps (GSHP) from its certified products directory.
Whilst MCS allows previously certified products to be installed up to 6 months after their removal from the scheme, these products will not be eligible for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).
The following products are affected by this and are no longer MCS certified:
If you are a consumer looking to have a renewable heat technology installed, in order to be eligible for the RHI, you must have an MCS certified product installed by an MCS certified installer. Before entering a contract, always look for the RECC logo, and check that the product offered is MCS certified here and that your chosen installer is MCS certified to install that technology here.
For advice on what to check before your sign a contract please see the Consumer Advice section of our website or call us on 0207 981 0850.
