Panasonic offers £800 cashback on Aquarea installs

UK: Panasonic has unveiled a new incentive offering £800.00 cashback to installers of its Aquarea air source heat pumps. 

The Green Install Cashback Scheme, which comes into effect today, enables qualifying installers to claim the £800.00 cashback after the successful installation of five Panasonic Aquarea A2W heat pumps with a Smart Cloud controller. In a concurrent promotion, homeowners replacing oil-fired, LPG, electric or mains gas boilers may also be able to claim up to £600.00 via the Green Homes Cashback Scheme.

The new scheme, available throughout the UK, will run at the same time as the UK government’s Green Homes Grant (1 October 2020 to 31 March 2021) and is an additional incentive aimed at installers, but not in any way connected to the government scheme. 

“Both installers and homeowners will be able to benefit and receive cashback by participating in this scheme. Not only will they enjoy the benefits of an Aquarea Air Source heat pump, but as long as they satisfy the scheme criteria, they will also be able to access cashback,” explained Panasonic UK marketing manager Tony Nielsen. 

“These Green Homes cashback schemes are straightforward for installers and homeowners to claim, saving both time and money, whilst also providing an extensive range of benefits through the PRO Club platform,” he added.

In addition to the cashback, Panasonic maintains that participating installers have access to a range of additional benefits as a Panasonic PRO Partner. 

This includes a host of tools, extended warranties, marketing material, installation support software, access to training courses and a listing on the Panasonic i-finder. 

As well as receiving free accredited training on the Panasonic Aquarea heat pump range, PRO Club membership are able to offer remote maintenance and monitoring to customers, via the Panasonic Service Cloud.
