Daikin installers can now access heat pump finance

Daikin’s approved heat pump installers can now offer homeowners flexible payment options, thanks to a new partnership with back-office support app Hiber.

The new partnership aims overcome one of the barriers to achieving the government’s target of 600,000 heat pump installations by 2028. The flexible payment options enable installers to offer homeowners alternative ways to finance heat pump and air conditioning installations. They can quote for the job using Hiber and, once the customer has accepted, will be able to direct their customers to the Hiber portal for a range of payment options.

Daikin UK managing director Hiroyasu Ishikawa says: “The decision to install a heat pump is a complex and considered one, with some barriers in the way of consumer decision-making. This new partnership strips away at least one barrier by offering a competitive new way to pay, as well as offering a new flexibility to our installers and our heat pump customers.”

“We need to be able to offer consumers access to affordable finance options that allow them to spread the cost over a number of years. This partnership between ourselves and Hiber will help break the mould of how we offer finance to consumers and make an important contribution towards the upgrading of the UK’s housing stock. It is an especially good time to make a change as there are government incentives including the £5,000 grant of the boiler upgrade scheme and 0% VAT on heat pump installations right now.”
