Technician – Central heating
At Hydrofire we put much emphasis on engineering and technical knowledge. The company employs a team of two fully qualified engineers, one of whom has a specialisation in heat transfer. Our central heating installations technician has a qualification in electrical engineering, and is furthering his studies in mechanical engineering. Constantly working with heating systems, we take into account a number of important concepts such as convection, air movement, insulation and potential heat losses in order to provide our customers with an optimal heating solution design that balances cost and performance.
Whether designing a complex central heating system with automated controls, or simply installing a wood burning fireplace in a living room, consideration needs to be given to the installation and design of the fireplace or system. This ensures that your hard-earned money is not wasted on something that does not perform.
This is where formal education combines with experience to provide the required technical knowledge needed to apply in the various situations. Hydrofire promotes continuous team learning by completing an annual training session during the off-peak season. So far we have completed Central Heating and Underfloor Heating Systems training in Italy, chimney systems training in Greece, and specialised fireplace training in Bulgaria. Hydrofire owner Kristo Nikolov attends at least one major European Heating Expo each year, in order to keep abreast with latest innovations and developments abroad.
