While installing your own system may be an option for someone with plumbing skills, there are a few points to remember
- working at height is usually a considerable part of the job and requires that the proper safety arrangements are in place.
- The technology has been improving rapidly over the last few years and many of the examples of DIY projects you find on the internet are out of date.
- Unfortunately the grants from the Renewable Heat Incentive only apply if registered installers are used, not DIY.
