Heat Engineer Hub Partners

What is a Hub Partner?

A Hub Partner is a Domestic Energy Assessor and Green Deal Assessor who has partnered up with RDC Energy Ltd. Once a potential Hub Partner has sign RDC Energy ‘Heat Engineer Hub Partner’ agreement and carried out training. RDC Energy lists their information on the Hub Partner page which outlines credentials and the types of services the Hub Partner can offer.

The whole package

Heat Engineer Hub Partners have been created to provide a service to MCS installers of heat pumps and Biomass systems. MCS installers can make contact with RDC Energy or a Hub Partner and request EPC, Green Deal assessment and a site visit for a full room by room heat loss calculation to size the heat source and emitters.

Because the MCS installer can ask one professional to visit a site this process reduces the number of visits to a property before an installation takes place. So the EPC, Green deal and MCS heat loss calculation can be surveyed from one visit by one person.

The Hub Partner is responsible for EPC’s and a Green deal assessments, but RDC Energy at head office process the MCS room by room calculations once the Hub Partner has sent through the site survey for each room.
RDC Energy will then send a completed ‘MCS Heat Loss and Heat Pump/Biomass Report’ to the installer. RDC Energy Ltd will send an invoice with the report for the installer to process.

Are you an MCS installer? then contact RDC Energy to book a Hub Partner

We are currently in the process of adding more Hub Partners.

If you would like to join as a Hub Partner please call RDC Energy or email Rich@RDC-Energy.co.uk
