Craig Walters, from Abergavenny, has been crowned the regional winner for Wales in the 2023 national Heating Installer Awards.

Craig specialises in all things plumbing, heating and air conditioning, offering a wide range of services to his customers.

He prides himself in the hard work he’s put in to create a reliable and positive reputation in his local area.

The panel of technical industry judges awarded Craig top prize for the region after an interesting and exciting judging day.

Craig wowed the judges with his professional expertise, problem solving skills and commitment to customer satisfaction.

He will now go on to the final in the tough competition for the national championship.

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.”
