Training scheme aims to boost heat pump take-up

An exclusive training scheme for local tradespeople is coming to Kettering, helping them to be among the first in the country to offer hybrid heat pumps to homeowners.

Heat Pump Training UK, at Burton Latimer, is one of 11 specialist heating and plumbing merchants across the country to be selected for the scheme, delivered in partnership with low-carbon heating manufacturer Daikin.

As well as helping local installers to future-proof their businesses, the initiative will help to roll out hybrid heat pump technology.

Hybrid heat pumps run on electricity and are installed alongside a regular boiler. The two appliances together provide heating and hot water, integrating with the property’s radiators as a first step towards introducing renewable heating technology into the home.

The pumps can reduce carbon dioxide emissions by up to 55 per cent compared to a boiler alone and deliver up to a 50pc reduction in energy bills.

“Step one is helping local installers train on the latest technology and step two is for all of us to champion its benefits when we are speaking to our customers,” said Heat Pump Training Centre manager Chloe Wood.
