Samsung Electronics has been awarded Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) status by the Carbon Trust for its DVM S Inverter VRF systems.
The status was awarded as Samsung’s DVM S VRF System achieved a coefficient of performance (COP) threshold of more than the required 3.80 and an energy efficient ratio (EER) of more than the 3.40 threshold set by the government.
The ECA scheme, run by the Carbon Trust for government, gives business tax relief for investing in energy efficient products from the approved Energy Technology List. Under the scheme, it is possible for businesses to claim 100 per cent first year capital allowance on these products.
Graham Long, Vice President, Enterprise Business Team at Samsung Electronics, said, “We take great pride in the environmental performance of our products and our VRF systems achieving ECA status is further proof of our efforts in this area. Our business customers will now be able write off the capital cost of purchasing these products from us which, together with the energy efficiency savings, will significantly reduce the overall cost of ownership.”
The Samsung DVM S systems now have a claimed industry leading COP of up to 4.94 and EER of up to 4.49. The DVM S maintains the previous generation’s class leading maximum pipe length of 200m, plus increases the vertical separation between the outdoor and indoor unit to an industry leading 110m.
Both VRF systems are available in eight single model sizes from 22.4 (8hp) to 61.6kW (22hp), with modular systems up to 246.4kW (88hp)capable of serving up to 80 indoor units
