A central heating system provides heat to a number of rooms or spaces in a building from a single source. The heat is generated in one location—typically a furnace room in a house or a mechanical room in a larger building—and then distributed to the spaces via forced air (via ductwork), water circulating through pipes, or steam fed to radiators in each space. The primary energy source for most central heating systems is fossil fuels, such as coal, oil, kerosene, natural gas, and sometimes electricity.

Heating installers play a critical role in the design and installation of these technologies. They are the bridge between those who design these technologies and those who use them, and as such can have substantial influence over the technology selected for use in individual households and the subsequent consumption of energy for domestic space heating.

In a recent interview, a self employed heating installer described a common type of interaction with customers that is indicative of how central heating systems are designed and installed: “I was doing a boiler swap recently, and the customer asked me where the boiler would be placed, so I told them where it was going to be and that’s it, they didn’t even know what they were getting.” (See the video.) Other examples of bad practice—from messy pipes, poor finishes, and incorrect locations to unsafe and illegal installations—are routinely detailed in what one participant called the “naughty pages” of industry magazines.  local central heating services
