New Delhi: Carrier today has announced the launch of energy-efficient and innovative air conditioning solutions from Carrier and Toshiba including the Toshiba inverter hi-wall- an energy efficient 1.5 ton hi-wall unit. Also introduced Carrier’s next generation inverter ducted units and Toshiba’s super modular multi system 7 (SMMS-7) variable refrigerant flow (VRF) system. Carrier, a global leader in high-technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
As per the company, this hi-wall air conditioner reduces energy consumption by nearly 40 percent, as compared to a 3-star fixed speed air conditioner, and can save up to Rs. 50,000 over a period of five years.
“India is a strategic geography for us and given the evolving needs of our valued customers in the region, we are committed to delivering best-in-class products. With these new air conditioners, we are able to provide our customers highly energy-efficient products and solutions,” said Arun Bhatia, MD, UTC Climate, Controls & Security, India.
Carrier also unveiled its next generation inverter ducted air conditioner. These air conditioners are suited for a variety of customer applications including small offices, restaurants, retail shops, gymnasiums, banquet halls, as well as for replacement of existing ducted systems.
“One of Carrier’s strategic objectives is developing sustainable products. To achieve this, we’re committed to developing new innovative and energy-efficient HVAC solutions to reduce energy consumption in buildings. Carrier and Toshiba’s new line of air conditioners with high ISEER ratings address this key focus area,” said Farokh Madan, Director, Marketing, UTC Climate, Controls & Security, India.
With a more than a decade of experience in India and understanding the needs of the customers, Toshiba has introduced an SMMS-7 VRF system that is designed and engineered specifically for Indian conditions. The new Toshiba SMMS-7 offers superior energy efficiency at partial loads and can operate at 52 degrees Centigrade ambient temperature.
Carrier and Toshiba operate in India through Toshiba-Carrier Corporation (TCC), a joint venture established in 1999 between United Technologies and Toshiba that has since developed an extensive global footprint to offer new, innovative and customized solutions and products to customers. The alliance combines Carrier’s and Toshiba’s complementary product offerings and capabilities in technology innovation, manufacturing, quality assurance, and sales and marketing.
