Our latest news
Vienna, September 2023 - A recent GfK study commissioned by Daikin Central Europe reveals the decision-making and purchasing behavior of houseowners and planners in the heat pump category across nine Central and Eastern European countries: In almost all the markets, fossil gas heating systems are still dominating in the residential segment. However, heat pumps are gaining popularity among both apartment and homeowners who are considering replacing their existing heating systems because of low opportunity costs, energy-savings and the smaller environmental impact. Planners primarily prefer heat pump solutions due to their environmentally friendly technology. #pr2312
