Receive £750-worth of Heat Pump Training for just £45 from Panasonic and Optimum Energy during October 2021.
A huge opportunity exists for installers to upskill, part-funded by the government, and provided by Panasonic in association with Optimum Energy. Take advantage of this fantastic offer and book onto courses which normally cost £750 per person, for just £45 for dates throughout October.
The drive to replace the huge number of fossil-fuel boilers (mains gas, oil and LPG) currently installed in homes across the country has just got serious and low carbon heating (and cooling) systems have never been more in demand.
Panasonic is teaming up with Optimum Energy to offer installers the chance to get certified to enable you to install the thousands of heat pumps that will be required over the coming years to meet the target set by the government. According to a recent report by the Committee for Climate Change, approximately 19 million households could adopt this new technology by 2050, with current predictions of approximately one million heat pumps installed by 2030, resulting in the UK meeting its net zero target by 2050.

In addition, delegates will receive free access to industry software and calculators worth hundreds of pounds and £100 off the cost of the LCL Heat Pump Part 1 course. Furthermore, help with MCS accreditation will be on hand if required.
Richard Bishop, Head of Marketing for Panasonic UK and Ireland, commented, “We are excited to be able to provide such a great offer to installers and to be working in partnership with BEIS and Optimum Energy Solutions to be able to provide this heat pump training throughout the UK during October and help contribute to a low carbon future - a top priority for Panasonic.”.
Panasonic’s Aquarea range of air source heat pumps is known for being a highly efficient solution, utilising the air as a 100% renewable energy source to provide heating, cooling and domestic hot water. The range itself is huge, offering a heat pump solution for many different homes, whatever the heating demand.
The latest Aquarea heat pumps use R32 refrigerant for increased savings and better environmental results. R32 is easy to recycle, has zero impact on the ozone layer and 75% less impact on global warming, helping to lower the carbon footprint of residential homes.
The Panasonic Aquarea J Generation features a heating efficiency with a COP of 5.33 and a Domestic Hot Water (DHW) COP of up to 3.3. The range is rated A+++ in low temperature operation, which is the highest energy class, according to the new Energy Labelling Directive 2010/30/EC. There are also models available that provide cooling as well as heating and hot water provision.
The average household in the UK emits 2.7 tonnes of CO2 every year from heating alone. Switching to air to water heat pumps to provide heating to our homes could help lower housing emissions significantly, plus residents can save up to 50% on their fuel bills. Air to water heat pumps are the future for the housing sector and an essential step in challenging the climate change problem.
Panasonic is a world leader within the heating and cooling industry, with over 60 years of experience of producing innovative products. The company invests heavily in R&D to develop new solutions to advance the market, with a huge emphasis on environmental impact, hence the investment in emerging low carbon technologies such as air source heat pumps.
