The added value of sustainability
Creating a sustainable business means focusing on the long term, and its not just our customers that are thinking more and more about the long term - we are too.
Our IKA team is currently monitoring more than 800 sites across Europe. That means plenty of real data about energy consumption, repair costs and maintenance fees for several different applications. With this data, we are able to deliver a realistic and comprehensive analysis of the life-cycle cost of our equipment, allowing our customers to compare current costs and make smart business decisions.
IKA case studies
From high street stores to supermarkets, service stations, restaurants and hotels, our IKA team is prepared to assist companies from a wide range of business sectors. Explore the case studies from our key accounts to see how we can tailor our serves to help your company succeed.
High street store
At Daikin, we understand the positive impact of creating a year-round comfortable climate in your store for your customers. That's why we offer a combination of products and services to strengthen the operational performance and comfort level of your store, while minimising energy costs.
Supermarkets and food retail stores have very specific needs in terms of heating, cooling, ventilation and refrigeration. Not to mention, energy costs also play a very important role as well. IKA can serve as your go-to partner to oversee all installations and track your store's overall energy consumption.
Service stations and convenience stores
Small to medium spaces with high visitor traffic and long opening hours usually means multiple needs for HVAC-R equipment. The smaller the selling space, the smaller the turnover and the more important the operation costs. Learn how we tailor our refrigeration (Not available in South Africa) and heat recovery products to suit service stations and convenience stores.
Hot water can be produced in many ways, but it’s not every case that hot water is recognised as sustainable. A heat pump can not only produce sustainable hot water, but it can also take care of your heating and cooling load. Discover how we helped a world-renowned restaurant chain optimise their business practices.
Daikin provides innovative, premium quality climate management, heating and refrigeration (Not available in South Africa) solutions to meet the changing needs of the hotel sector professionals, while ensuring the ultimate in comfort for guests.
