Hitachi’s recently-launched Hi Efficiency Set Free VRF – FSXNH – has achieved Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) scheme status.
The ECA Scheme is part of the Government’s programme of measures to manage climate change which gives businesses tax relief for investing in energy-efficient, accredited products - making it possible to claim a 100% first year capital allowance against the taxable profits in the period of investment (rather than claiming on a reducing balance basis).
In order to achieve ECA approval, products must undergo rigorous testing and meet specific energy-saving criteria, achieving a COP of >3.70 and EER of >3.30.
FSXNH VRF from Hitachi offers 2-pipe heat pump and 3-pipe heat recovery options from a single unit, with models ranging from 5HP to 36HP. Each outdoor unit is lightweight and modular which - combined with long piping runs and improved height difference - means FSXNH can meet any design brief and is incredibly flexible and easy to install.
FSXNH is also the highest performing Annual Performance Factor (APF) VRF system in Japan, winning the Japanese Energy Efficiency and Conservation Award for 2013.
“We’re delighted our Hi Efficiency FSXNH VRF products have achieved ECA approval and now appear on the DECC Energy Technology List,” commented David Oldroyd, Vice President and Managing Director of Hitachi Air Conditioning Europe SAS.
Set Free FSXNH VRF is available now from Hitachi Direct Sales or through the extensive Hitachi distribution network.
