Panasonic launches new Training Reward for installers switching to heat pumps


Panasonic has announced its plans for a new ‘Train to Gain with Panasonic’ reward scheme to further assist gas boiler engineers and installers to upskill and get qualified to install and maintain air source heat pumps.

Panasonic will give installers £500 in rewards (limited to one per company) on completion of the Level 3 accredited heat pump training following their first Panasonic installation[1].

Installers completing the relevant training courses, installing and commissioning an Aquarea system (plus DHW tank) will be eligible for the scheme, which will provide the installation company with a £500* reward in the form of Love2ShopVouchers.  The qualifying training courses are available from several training centres across the country offering the Level 3 Award in the Installation and Maintenance of Heat Pump Systems (Non-refrigerant Circuits). Claims can be submitted once qualified, and following their first install of one Aquarea heat pump system with a domestic hot water tank. The new Panasonic scheme will run from 1st April 2023 to 31st December 2023[2].

Jose Alves, UK Country Manager for Panasonic Heating & Cooling Solutions comments, “Interest in heat pumps has never been higher – and there has to be an expansion of the skilled installer base for the net zero and decarbonisation of home heating to be met.  There has never been a better time to get trained, with the availability of government training grants plus this additional reward from Panasonic. The sooner installers, fitters and gas boiler engineers get trained, the quicker they can take advantage of these market opportunities.”

Panasonic also offers further free product training and support – and will provide free commissioning support, which can be especially useful for an installer’s first project.

The Panasonic Aquarea air to water heat pumps offer the peak of comfort, efficiency, low energy costs. The new scheme is simple and straightforward – get Level 3 qualified, buy the qualifying products from an authorised Panasonic distributor or wholesaler, install, commission the system and connect to the cloud – and then send in the claim.

The Panasonic Aquarea system is an innovative, low-energy air-to-water heat pump system, designed to help homeowners enjoy ideal temperatures and hot water in their home, even with extreme outdoor temperatures. An Aquarea heat pump captures fresh air to heat the property, designed to ensure maximum comfort.

With the increasing availability and affordability of air source heat pump technology, now is the time for engineers to explore this alternative and capitalise on the growing demand for eco-friendly heating solutions. By embracing air source heat pumps,  engineers can position themselves as industry leaders and contribute to a greener, more sustainable future for all.
