The great thing about a loyalty club is that it doesn’t cost anything to join and it makes your life easier – and who doesn’t want that?
Since we launched Installersmate in November 2014 we’ve not only seen a steady stream of installers signing up but we’ve been getting great feedback from them about what it is they like so much about it.
Time is money so the fact that Installersmate is so easy and straightforward to use is a great bonus on a busy day. Making a Gas Safe notification and registering the warranty after the installation of a boiler are vital actions that must be taken and the fact that Installersmate allows both to be done in just a few clicks means installers are saving time, saving money -because Installersmate picks up the £2.20 Gas Safe Register fee – and getting immediate peace of mind that their obligations to Gas Safe and the customer have been fulfilled.
Instant production of the Gas Safe notification and warranty certificates is also a great boost to productivity. A quick check on their profile shows the installer all the certificate pdfs for all their installations, old and new, and speedy despatch by Ferroli’s customer service team of the certificates to the customer cuts out all those time-consuming phone calls from customers asking when their certificates are going to arrive.
The next benefit that Installersmate members have yet to enjoy is our clever email reminder service for their customers’ annual boiler services. Six weeks before the anniversary of the installation both the installer and the customer will automatically receive an email from Installersmate reminding them that they need to contact each other to book a date for a service. This is so important for the continued smooth safe running of the boiler and to maintain the validity of the warranty and it means the installer retains the business and doesn’t lose out to a competitor because he forgot!
So we’d like to say a big thank you to all Installersmate members who’ve taken the trouble to contact us with their kind words and questions; and to anyone who’s reading this and hasn’t signed up yet – come on in and join the club!

As a family-owned company, it is with great sadness that we announce the death of Dante Ferroli, the President and founder of Ferroli Group. He died aged 85 years on Monday 13th April.
Dante Ferroli founded the Ferroli Group in San Bonifacio, Italy, in 1955. Over the ensuing 60 years his leadership and dedication led to the Ferroli Group becoming one of the world’s major heating & cooling appliance manufacturers. Following a partnership with Brassware Sales formed in the late 1980s, Ferroli UK was established in 1997. Now operating in 14 countries, the Ferroli Group continues to develop innovative technology in the heating, cooling and renewable energy markets.
Despite this sad loss, Ferroli Group will continue to grow and develop and Dante Ferroli’s invaluable and inspirational contribution to the development of the HVAC industry will always be remembered.
The Ferroli T-One boiler made an appearance on a CNBC TV news report on 10th April about the latest wearable technology being introduced by a number of British companies.
The Ferroli T-One high efficiency condensing combi boiler is the boiler chosen by Blueberry Home Solutions and the Magic Thermodynamic Box company to work with their innovative energy saving Central Heating Management System.
CNBC’s Seema Moody interviewed Blueberry’s MD Alistair Smit on the company’s current work on developing a new wearable app that allows consumers to control their energy usage via their smart watch.

One of the many innovative features of the Modena HE boiler that make it so popular with installers is the versatile flue kit. Unlike other boilers of this type and class which come with a standard flue, the Modena offers an extensive range of flueing options, including twin pipe with a very long reach of up to 80m.*
Thanks to the 80mm twin pipe system, the Modena boiler can be installed almost anywhere in the property, a claim that not many boiler manufacturers can make. This flue allows for a reach of 80m* for the 27kW combi and 70m* for the 32kw combi and all the system models. The 80mm flue pipe is also translucent which allows the installer to check that the condense is running away and not ‘pooling’ in the flue.
The Modena comes with a standard telescopic flue kit which can be adapted by purchasing both horizontal and vertical coaxial flue extensions as required for the chosen location within the property.
A centralised flue position on the boiler makes replacement installations in older properties much easier by being able to use the same flue hole through the wall.
There are many different classifications of flues and it’s very important that the regulations relating to positioning are adhered to for safety’s sake. The extensive options offered by the Modena means it is more adaptable than any other comparable boiler.
Our Flue Manual gives all the information that installers will need for working with Ferroli flues, including minimum clearances, standard flue applications, coaxial horizontal and vertical flues, 80mm two pipe flue applications, plume displacement kits and terminal positions. There’s also a handy illustrated list of flue parts with the part numbers needed to order from merchants.

Free Gas Safe notifications are just one of the fantastic benefits available to installers who join boiler manufacturer Ferroli’s brand new loyalty club Installersmate.
By creating a profile on Installersmate, Gas Safe registered professionals can keep all their Ferroli boiler installation records in one place and take advantage of business-boosting annual boiler service reminders, easy warranty registrations, competitions and exclusive rewards. Plus all new members will receive a free Ferroli branded black polo shirt.
“A great boiler depends on a great installer so we have created a club that will support the engineers who put their trust in us and our fantastic boilers,” said Ferroli’s sales director John Moran. “We’ve made it straightforward and easy to use so that busy installers can quickly and easily complete the essential tasks of making notifications and registering their customers’ warranties. We have also added an email reminder feature that will be invaluable for driving repeat business and building customer loyalty.”
With Installersmate the process for making Gas Safe notifications is exactly the same as doing it direct with Gas Safe except that there’s no £2.20 fee to pay – Ferroli picks up the bill. And just another couple of clicks are needed to safely register and activate the customer’s warranty. This is where Installersmate takes on the role of office assistant.
By entering the customer’s email address, Installersmate will send an email alert to both the installer and the customer six weeks before the anniversary of the installation reminding them that it’s time to arrange a date for an annual service. This takes the onus of the paperwork off the installer and helps to prevent losing business to a rival. Of course, it still works if the customer doesn’t give their email address, the reminder will just be sent to the installer.
But it’s not all about work – Installersmate will offer regular competitions and prize draws and a programme of points-per-boiler-purchased rewards scheme will be introduced next year. Installers who register now can enter a prize draw to win one of five Love2shop vouchers worth £150.
“If you install Ferroli boilers you’ll want to become a member of Installersmate,” said John. “Installersmate will save you valuable time and money; it keeps all your Ferroli boiler installation records safely in one place; it helps to maintain your relationship with your customers and it could reward you with a nice freebie. There’s everything to gain and nothing to lose.”

Further education college, Coleg y Cymoedd – meaning college of the valleys – is now THE place to go in South Wales for full training on the Ferroli Modena HE range of domestic boilers.
At the Ystrad Mynach campus in Caerphilly, Level 4 gas engineers can learn how to install and maintain the Modena boiler on fully working 27kW & 32kW combi and 18kW system models.
Lea Thomas, Coleg y Cymoedd’s Gas Centre Manager & Assessor, wanted to extend the scope of the college’s gas training courses by having the most modern and user-friendly appliances on-site that would give students skills that could be immediately put into practice in the workplace.
“A colleague recommended Ferroli as a partner for our gas assessment courses after hearing about the excellent performance of the new Modena boilers. I contacted AJ Kalirai, the Ferroli ASM for our area, and within just two weeks the training room was set up and fully functioning, ready for the start of the 2014 autumn term.
“Feedback from our students has been brilliant. The Modena boilers are easy to work on and our students feel they have learnt genuinely useful skills.”
At Coleg y Cymoedd’s Ystrad Mynach campus, professional gas engineers can renew their Gas Safe registration. Level 1, 2 & 3 Plumbing qualifications are also available at the Aberdare, Nantgarw and Ystrad Mynach campuses.

With less than a week to go we’re now on the countdown to PHEX Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on 12 & 13 November.
We’re very excited about this year’s exhibition because we have a fabulous brand new stand design that we know will catch your eye, so make sure you come along to 61&62 and have a look for yourself.
Of course the main attraction on our stand is our flagship Modena HE range of domestic boilers, that’s the star of our show.
The Modena remains one of the smallest, lightest, quietest complete combi boilers available and – we believe – is the most user-friendly boiler in its class on the market.
At PHEX you’ll be able to have a good look inside the Modena on display and see just how much clear space there is inside the boiler to work in. No clutter, wires, clunky components to get in the way when you’re trying to work; no sharp edges to cut your fingers on and only 4 moving parts so it’s easy to service and maintain – all this in a very compact and beautifully built appliance.
We’ve just added a new powerful 38kW combi model to the range so the line-up currently features 27kw, 32kW & 38Kw combi and 18kw, 25kW and 32kW system models. All come with the choice of a 7, 5 or 2 year parts & labour warranty without the need to buy any extras – it’s a genuine guarantee of reliability and peace of mind for your customers.
We’ll also be showing our highly adaptable light commercial boilers, the Econcept 51A and Energy Top, both of which are suitable for larger residential installations that require 40kW and above and can be installed in cascade operation to enable outputs up to 492kW without the need for additional controls.
We love coming to PHEX because we get to chat to the people who matter most – our customers – so come along to stand 61&62 to say hello, tell us about yourself and sign up for our exciting new club – find out more on the day!
