Daikin UK has established three further Sustainable Home Centres in partnership with Clima-tech HVAC in Suffolk, Richmonds Plumbing and Heating Merchants in Glasgow and Duftons Plumbing and Heating Supplies in Harrogate.
The heat pump manufacturer is partnering with builders merchants, heating specialists and energy companies across the UK to create walk-in locations for homeowners to get to grips with the benefits of renewable heating solutions. Once they’ve identified the best solution for their home, they are partnered with a trusted local installer.
As well as winning projects and sourcing products via the centres, installers can access training, resources and stock, to help them diversify into renewable heating solutions – and to ensure the long-term competitiveness of their businesses as fossil fuels are phased out.
Iain Bevan, commercial manager – heating & renewables at Daikin UK, said: “To be a Sustainable Home Centre is the top tier of Daikin Sustainable Home Network membership – an opportunity for specialist renewable heating businesses to step up and lead the movement towards a low carbon future, by opening a state-of-the-art heat pump showroom and where applicable, a training facility, jointly funded by Daikin.
“These latest additions follow a busy year for launches across our network. We’re proud to be supporting Clima-tech, Richmonds and Duftons as, together, we can tackle the green skills shortage and make a significant contribution towards our national net zero targets.
“Being able to explore and discuss heat pump technology and the significant cost savings they offer in person is vital, as is knowing that it will be installed by a highly trained professional - and that’s what our Sustainable Home Centres are all about.''
