Research by Uponor further proves our inclination that the Plumbing and Heating industries are where it’s at. 90 percent of installers are enthusiastic about the year ahead. Here’s why (according to a survey of Uponor’s supplier network):
- 45 percent of survey respondents think the biggest factor helping their business is customers wanting to save money, and in-turn updating to more efficient systems.
- 52 percent of respondents believe the recovering economy is working wonders.
- 73 percent of installers see a shift in demand for different technologies– with UFH as a key solution.
- Heat pumps and solar thermal are also in high demand.
Chris Greaves, head of offerings and markets at Uponor UK said: “It is no surprise that as the house building and construction markets begin to improve, installers’ order books also expand as more and more homeowners have the extra cash to invest in new heating systems or extensions.
