How it started. 

The Westcott Venture Park site with its deep and historic roots in the aerospace, rocket-propulsion and defence industries seemed a fitting home for the creation of Optec Group, a new company enthusiastic about providing customers with renewable and efficient smart technologies. Optec Group originally formed as a department of Home Power Services, an established contractor undertaking both air-conditioning and electrical installations for luxury garden building manufacturers like Green Retreats, the UK's market leader. Optec Group became a separate independent company as increasing commercial demand for its services grew, and has since ventured into variety of technical disciplines across the electrical and renewable sectors. We have quickly gained a reputation for being amongst the most reliable providers and maintainers of electrical, renewable, air-conditioning, heating, and climate systems in the UK. 



At Optec Group, we understand the challenges commercial managing agents, landlords, and freeholders face with the ever-changing and continually increasing legislation surrounding our industry. We recognize the importance of demonstrating that both new and older systems are rigorously checked and maintained each year, with the relevant supporting documentation to ensure continued compliance and safety standards. Our mission is to provide reliable and efficient services to our clients while remaining price competitive. We achieve this by employing a team of highly qualified engineers and electricians who undergo constant performance checks and compliance training in all aspects of their work areas. Our commitment to staying up to date with the latest regulations and safety standards means that our clients can trust us to deliver the highest level of service. Whether it's installation, maintenance, or repair, we take every job seriously and strive to exceed expectations. At Optec Group, we pride ourselves on providing exceptional service while remaining cost-effective. With our team of experts, you can be confident that your systems are in good hands.

Frequently asked questions

  • How often should an air-conditioning unit be serviced or maintained?
    An air-conditioning system should be tested at least once a year, or as per the manufacturer's guidance. Regular servicing not only preserves the manufacturer's warranty of your system, it also ensures that it stays as efficient as possible. Another benefit of having your system tested regularly is that it will catch any potential issues early, saving you money on costly repairs and reducing ongoing energy costs. Additionally regular servicing will improve the air quality in your space aiding the elimination of harmful pathogens such as Covid-19, keeping you and your loved ones healthy and comfortable. For many systems it is a legal requirement to perform annual maintenance, and the government have the ability to penalise non-conformance with unlimited fines. Contact us today to learn more about our air-conditioning service packages.
  • Will my air-conditioning unit heat as well a cool?
    Many people are not aware that all of our air-conditioning units are classified as air source heat pumps, meaning they can also be used as the main heat source within your property. In fact, heat pumps provide a greater heating output while using three times less energy than other traditional heating systems.
  • How do I know if my consumer unit needs testing
    If your consumer unit is over 10 years old, frequently trips or blows fuses, is damaged or rusted, or emits a burning smell, it may need testing. To prevent electrical hazards, contact a qualified Optec electrician for testing and maintenance. Regular maintenance ensures the safe operation of your electrical system.
