Cool Designs Ltd has uploaded a series of training videos for its installer customers on internet video site Youtube.
There are currently five videos graphically showing how to deal with various changes, which may be needed on site for an air conditioning system.
These videos are all backed up with a voice-over giving instructions and advice. More videos will be added each month covering a wide variety of subjects.
Among the subjects covered are: Changing minimum temperatures in cooling; Set Auto Restart on a Toshiba hard wired remote; changing an air sensor location; Toshiba sensing at the remote control and How to disable louvre swing.
“We are not confining these training videos to our customers with a CDL password,” said Cool Designs managing director, Darrel Birkett.
“They are available to everyone in the industry. We believe that smooth, professional installations help to improve the image of the whole ac industry, which has to be beneficial for all who work in it.”
To view the CDL help and training videos simply go to You Tube and search for CoolDesigns Ltd.
Cool Designs Ltd has also added Toshiba Estia air to water heat pumps to its training modules at its training centres.
The Estia heat pump system can reduce CO2 emissions by up to 64 per cent (compared with oil fuelled systems), because of extensive piping options is easy to install, can produce water at different temperatures for several applications simultaneously, has space/room temperatures up to 55 deg C and domestic hot water up to 75 deg C and operates with outdoor temperatures as low as -20 deg C.
CDL’s training sessions at its Sunderland, Warrington and Glasgow operations are all hands-on based and cover a large range of Toshiba equipment. They are designed for installation, commissioning and service engineers with a prior knowledge of acr products.
Additionally, as CDL do not break into the refrigerant circuit during training and while it does highlight the necessary F-Gas procedures, there is no requirement for F-Gas certification from the trainees.
This means CDL can invite and train engineers at all stages of their development.
CDL can now train a total of 400 people a year at its training centres as well as those that it trains at customer premises.
