Toshiba Air Conditioning is rolling out a series of technology briefings to update consultants and contractors about the latest developments in air conditioning and refrigerant containment systems.
The national tour has already staged events in Manchester, Bristol, Newcastle and London, with further briefings planned for Leeds, Birmingham and Sheffield later this year.
The sessions include details of the company’s recently introduced SHRM-i three-pipe heat recovery VRV system, which Toshiba claim delivers the best part load efficiency available on the market today.
David Dunn, Toshiba’s general manager, says: “In the UK, air conditioning only operates at maximum capacity for a small proportion of the time. For most of the time, systems operate at part-load – therefore it makes sense to focus on efficiency in this range.”
The briefings also cover the latest developments in Toshiba’s refrigerant detection and leak management system, which offers a complete solution to the challenge of refrigerant containment.
On the subject of refrigerant choice, Mr Dunn says: “Since we launched the refrigerant management system the interest has been tremendous. It is now being specified as a default solution by some of the world’s best known companies, particularly in the hotel sector. They like the absolute assurance that the system provides, which is not available from any other manufacturer.”
Other topics being covered by the roadshow include R22 replacement, installer training, Toshiba’s air conditioning lease scheme and the new seven-year warranty.
