Daikin UK has opened the doors of three new Sustainable Home Centres, bringing its national network to around 40-strong.
The air-source heat pump manufacturer is partnering with builder’s merchants, heating specialists and energy companies around the country to educate homeowners on the benefits of renewable heating solutions in person.
The latest openings are in Ambleside, in partnership with Express Plumbing Supplies; in Newport, with Robert Price; and in Nottingham, with FDG Group.
Each of the three new centres invited homeowners, installers, housing associations and government representatives to celebrate their opening.
Iain Bevan, Commercial Manager – Heating & Renewables at Daikin UK, commented: “Reaching the UK’s net zero target won’t happen without collaboration and partnership between specialists up and down the country.
“Together, we can harness the collective expertise and regional reach to tackle the green skills shortage and play our part in ushering in a more sustainable future for the UK.
“At Daikin, we have the capacity to train more than 7,000 installers on air-source heat pumps every year, through our accredited courses and around 40-strong network of Sustainable Home Centres – and our goal is to equip around 30% of all installers in the industry with the skills they need to meet growing demand.”
Installers will be able to access training, resources and stock to help them diversify into renewable heating solutions.
