Craig Walters crowned regional winner in national Heating Installer Awards

Craig Walters from Abergavenny has been crowned the regional winner for Wales in the 2023 national Heating Installer Awards, after overcoming tough competition in the highly talented region.

Craig specialises in all things plumbing, heating and air conditioning, offering a wide range of services to his dedicated customers. He prides himself in the hard work he’s put in to create a reliable and positive reputation in his local area. He ensures his customers will receive nothing but the best service in any and every job he undertakes.

The panel of technical industry judges awarded Craig the top prize for the region after an interesting and exciting judging day last month. He successfully wowed the judges with his professional expertise, problem solving skills and commitment to customer satisfaction. Craig will now go on to the final in the tough competition for the national championship.

Speaking of his win, Craig said: “This is absolutely fantastic news and I still can’t quite believe it. The project I entered was my first heat pump install after the heat geek course, and to win the regional award for it really commends the hard work put in to deliver this job to the highest standard. I can’t wait for the next stage of the competition!”

The awards scheme, now in its eighth year, recognises the achievements and raises the credibility of plumbers and heating installers across the country who deliver excellent customer service on a daily basis. Representatives from the awards’ partners, Big Wipes, CIPHE, Danfoss, LG, Refresh PRStelrad and Polypipe Building Products as well as media partner Installer magazine, judged the entries on problem solving, product knowledge and unique details. The panel was also joined by the 2022 Heating Installer Awards winner, John Cruickshank.

Voting closes on 29th May and public votes will contribute to a quarter of Craig’s overall score, alongside the judges’ scores and the scores from a technical challenge set for all regional and highly commended winners.

The winner will be announced on 28th June at Installer Show 2023, the UK’s national plumbing and heating show.
