Daikin UK kicks-off 2024 with four new Sustainable Home Centres  

Air-source heat pump manufacturer, Daikin UK, has opened the doors of four new Sustainable Home Centres, as the company looks to accelerate the UK’s adoption of renewable forms of home heating. 

In 2023, Daikin UK expanded its Sustainable Home Network by opening nine centres growing its network by almost 40% year-on-year. In 2024 it has already added four further centres and, it says, there are plans to open more later this year. 

The Sustainable Home Centres that opened this year are Connect Plumbing & Heating Supplies in Benfleet, Stuart HVAC renewables in Narborough, Jones & Shuffs in Stoke-on-Trent and MKM Building Supplies in Malton.  

As well as providing a hub for homeowners to learn about renewable heating and for installers to bring their customers, the Daikin Sustainable Home Centres house a heat pump training centre. This, it is anticipated, will help local plumbing and heating installers diversify into renewable heating solutions. 

Iain Bevan, Commercial Manager – Heating & Renewables at Daikin UK, commented: “Our new openings mark the start of another busy year of launches across our network. We are proud to be partnering with Connect Plumbing, Stuart HVAC Renewables, Jones & Shuffs and MKM Building Supplies as, together, we will tackle the green skills shortage and make a significant contribution towards our national net zero targets. 

Sustainable Home Centres are among the top tiers of Daikin Sustainable Home Network membership – creating an opportunity for specialist renewable heating businesses to step up and lead the country towards a low carbon future. 

Being able to discuss heat pump technology and its significant cost saving benefits in person is vital, as is knowing that it will be installed by a highly trained professional – which is exactly what our Sustainable Home Network is all about.”   

Matt Taylor, Branch Director at MKM Building Supplies, commented: “Opening this new Sustainable Home Centre is a brilliant milestone for our business and the local community. As a trusted, nation-wide builders’ merchants that puts our customers first, adding Daikin’s renewable technology to our portfolio of products and expertise will increase what we can offer our customers, while helping to grow out the renewable energy market in Malton. We enjoyed seeing lots of friendly faces at our launch day, who joined us in celebrating this next step in our journey to help our community become more sustainable. With our local expert advice in all areas of plumbing and heating, and Daikin’s market-leading product range, there’s something for everyone.”
