I have a ASHP at my home,, installed around 2009, all working fine, no issues, itís just that the guy who installed in went bust and never got me the MCS cert for it so I could claim the incentive. I know itís a while ago, but its only now I was really thinking of, what about validating it now. Would you know if its possible for a company to be able to come out and check it over, then sign it off/replace/change anything that needs doing so I can claim?
Living in South West Wales if theres any takers?

I too would be interested in this, as I've got a fully working ASHP currently with no accreditation.

So you buy a HP in the past and you are now commissioning it.  Have a discussion with trader to take it out and refit and commission.  It cannot be the date of manufacture or of purchase but the date of COMMISSIONING.  The problem is finding the trader who does not want to to sell you a HP with a lovely profit.

I asked the initial question on a Facebook group, boy are they hostile over there, clearly wanting to protect themselves and profit margins
