“The complete, bespoke package that Nu‑Heat delivers is great. The design process, literature and the people we deal with day-to-day are superb.

The Technical Support Team is always there for me to tap into, as well as giving support to my customers.

I know that I can handover the user instructions and design drawings to the end user and they will find it easy to understand and use their new heating system.

Knowing that Nu‑Heat provides all that I need cuts out the headaches for me. It’s a cracking company!”
