Daikin UK has opened three new Sustainable Home Centres, taking its national network to around 40.
The manufacturer is partnering with builders' merchants, heating specialists and energy companies around the country to educate homeowners on the benefits of renewable heating solutions in person.
By opening a heat pump showroom and training facility, jointly funded by Daikin, the centres have reached the top tier of Daikin’s Sustainable Home Network membership.

Iain Bevan, commercial manager – heating & renewables, at Daikin UK, said: “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 who join the network can benefit from free, hands-on-tools training at its industry-leading training centres around the UK, to develop their heat pump installation and commissioning expertise. Other benefits include dedicated technical support, sales-ready leads, business support and special offers.
