Daikin expands training centres with two new openings

Daikin UK has opened the doors of two new Sustainable Home Centres, bolstering its national network to around 40-strong.

A new centre has opened in Basingstoke in partnership with UKHeatPumps, while the second centre, H2ecO, has launched in Poole, Dorset. Local installers can use the centres to access free training and resources to help them diversify into renewable heating solutions.

Iain Bevan, Commercial Manager – Heating & Renewables at Daikin UK, commented: “Quality training and collaboration is key on the road to net zero, and our Sustainable Home Centres act as hubs where we all come together to drive progress. Together with H2ecO and UKHeatPumps we can tackle the green skills shortage and make a significant contribution towards our national net zero targets.

“At Daikin, we have the capacity to train over 7,000 installers on air-source heat pumps per year, through our accredited courses and around 40-strong network of Sustainable Home Centres – and we’re striving to train around 30% of all installers in the industry.”

Michael Tomlinson, MP for Mid Dorset and North Poole, attended the opening of H2ecO. He said: “I am pleased to officially open the H2ecO Daikin Sustainable Home Centre, a place where our local community can learn about all the exciting opportunities presented by heat pumps and renewable technologies.

“From homeowners looking to save money on their fuel bills and ‘go green’, to installers wanting to train and prepare for the future of low carbon heating, the Sustainable Home Centre at H2ecO will provide an important ‘heat pump hub’ for the area and a step towards our local and national goal of reaching net zero.”
