Design and Sales
This course is aimed at those who want to design their own systems, as well as individuals who specialise in design and quoting.
Designing and specifying underfloor and radiator systems involves heat loss calculations and referencing tables of relevant information. The knowledge gained from being able to design a system lends itself to quoting and selling systems to customers, as it’s important to see the big picture of a central heating system to give an accurate quote.
Presentations and exercises use a real house as a case study to provide an accurate picture of the designing, specifying, and quoting processes outside of the classroom.
Copies of the presentations and relevant literature will be provided in a folder for attendees to take home.
