Latest announcements and activity plans of Hungarian government regarding reducing the subsidies on heating energy prices encouraged Hungarian Daikin team to communicate more actively towards residential endusers and support them in decision-making about their heating system-renovations.
Balázs Zuggó, managing director introduced the event with facts about Daikin and the rapidly increased interest and inquires on air-to-water and also air-to-air heatpumps. There is a general feeling of endusers panicking and taking a decision without thinking over to find the best solution.
Gabriella Szalai, environmental advocacy presented the latest reports of Hungarian Central Statistical Office, the huge number of elderly, outdated real estates with poor energy status and the gas dependency of Hungarian households. Additionally she highlighted the latest guidelines and directives of the EU which obviously support the heatpump technology.
The event ended with a part of greatest interest, when Hungarian Residential Sales Manager, István Pécsi presented examples for heatpump solutions with detailed calculations, taken into consideration the costs of heatpump/ split products , the calculated operation costs in heating season and the ROI when the installation worth the investment in years. Source of origin of these examples came from colleagues who had been asked previously to support the presentation with data from their own private life, their homes. Daikin colleagues were happy to submit data as increase of energy prices is a hot topic nowadays which concerns everyone.
