Microgeneration Support Services (MSS) is an MCS consultancy company. We started up in February 2020 and with the COVID-19 global pandemic we could never have predicted how tough that would be. However, with many late nights, an abundance of tea and coffee and multiple Zoom meetings here we are.
Our story began over 15 years ago as an installation company, fitting renewables including Air Source Heat Pumps all over the UK for both domestic and commercial properties. Within that time, we worked with the vast majority of all major manufacturers of Air Source Heat Pumps, designing and installing all types of heat pumps to suit an array of buildings and properties. We also witnessed the inception of the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) in the Air Source Heat Pump industry, along with numerous government incentives to try and convert people into using green energy. MCS is a standards organisation - it is brilliant for regulation and means there is a benchmark for the standard of installs and products.
However, due to the complexity of MCS requirements: design, paperwork, heat loss calculations and registrations, these new standards put a lot of excellent Heating Engineers / Plumbers off the idea of renewables. Many reverted back to installing fossil fuel systems and chose to stick to what they knew, missing an incredible opportunity in an industry that is now flourishing and cannot be ignored.
To support every brilliant Plumber, Heating Engineer or Apprentice to access this multi-billion-pound green heating sector. The government have stated that by 2025 fossil fuel heating systems can not be installed in new build homes so it is literally a matter of time until most engineers will have no choice but to install renewable heating systems as the average UK homeowner moves to greener heating.
We have a team of design and technical engineers who endeavour to support installers through the entire process, from the initial quote stage through to commissioning and signing off compliant systems. Our main aim is to build relationships with existing and new installers who can use our services to take away the MCS stress so they can focus on what they do best… INSTALL. At MSS we will survey, design, complete heat loss calculations, raise contract paperwork, check each and every installation for compliancy issues, register with all the relevant parties and certify & sign off under MCS.
At MSS, we do the paperwork so you don't have to. You install and we take care of the rest.
