Plumbers merchant Plumb Center has confirmed it is extending network of training centres and renewable technology displays around the country.
New displays are promised for the branches in Edinburgh, Bournemouth, Bangor, Cardiff, Aberdeen, Epsom, Shrewsbury, Carmarthen, Eastbourne, Swansea and Dumfries.
Plumb Center also has plans to add to its two key training centres in Leamington Spa and Sevenoaks this year with new satellite centres opening in Shrewsbury, Bristol, Ripon and Falkirk. There are currently three satellite training centres in operation in Orpington, Leeds and Exeter.
There are currently renewable technology displays in the branches in Leeds, Bradford, Middlesbrough, Barking, Tottenham, Newcastle, Exeter and Orpington.
All include a range of renewables including air source heat pumps and buffer vessels, underfloor heating, solar thermal systems, solar cylinders, biomass boilers, Micro CHP, SmartRads and photovoltaics.
The display areas are fully operational so that installers and their customers can see, first hand how the renewable technologies work and how they are installed. Plus, with the display units providing space and water heating for the building they can also physically experience the results of their heat output.
