Train4TradeSkills News: CIPHE urge plumbers to help out homeowners
With the rising cost of energy prices and the expectation of a freezing cold winter ahead of us, it’s expected to be an expensive time for homeowners over the next few months.
That’s why the CIPHE have said that it’s up to plumbers to help customers cope with the rising cost of fuel and advise them what to do.
The CIPHE, or the Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering as it’s properly known, says it is imperative for plumbers and heating engineers to advise homeowners how to reduce their energy bills.
Even if they can help homeowners save a small amount of money this winter, then this would be a good service. If plumbers can share their knowledge and expertise, it can only be a good thing.
Kevin Wellman, the acting chief executive of the CIPHE, says:
“The rise in energy prices has added £200 to the average cost of running a home and with another cold winter on the horizon, it’s very important to address the issue of energy saving.
“Plumbers and heating engineers have a lot of expertise in these matters and even simple jobs like explaining how people can adjust their thermostats effectively could really help.”
I believe plumbers have an obligation to help as many people as possible and we’ll be saving them money in the long term and bringing us closer to our environmental targets.”
As plumbers, what do you think about this? Is it up to plumbers to advise homeowners on energy bills? Let us know what you think and comment below:
