The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy’s (BEIS) public attitudes tracker collects data on public attitudes four times a year.
Published on February 7 2019, the latest results place heating engineers as the most trusted and helpful among all traders.
Stewart Clements, director of the Heating & Hotwater Industry Council (HHIC), said: “Heating engineers are consistently cited as the most trusted traders in Britain. I am delighted to see that they continue to receive the recognition they deserve.
“One in two of the consumers surveyed (53 per cent) named heating engineers as their ‘go to’ source of advice for their new or replacement heating system. What’s more, more than nine in 10 said they were happy with the advice they received.
“Heating engineers belong to one of the most highly trained and scrutinised professions of all the trades. This latest recognition is testament to the honest, reliable and hardworking industry that continues to deliver customer satisfaction and high quality workmanship for gas heating systems in the 85 per cent of UK homes that rely on gas.”
