Daikin launches new energy efficient air conditioners

UAE, November 20, 2017

Daikin, a global leader in HVAC manufacturing, has pioneered a solution that can cut energy use drastically and save billions of tonnes of C02 globally.

Daikin has pioneered the new Inverter Split Wall Mounted unit, claimed to be the most energy efficient air conditioner of its type available in the GCC.

The split Inverter can achieve energy reductions of up to 70 per cent, compared to traditional split AC and window units, and boasts an energy efficiency ratio (EER) of 13.3 at T1 condition, making it the most energy efficient air conditioner of its type in the market.

The result of continued research on refrigerants, R-32 is a next generation gas that addresses a range of environmental considerations in a balanced manner. The split inverter features bespoke design for the High Ambient GCC market, and is testament to Daikin’s commitment to develop sustainable systems with a lower impact on the environment.

Sana Hamdani, product planning manager – Middle East and Africa (MEA), Daikin, said: “Combining the power of our inverters with the revolutionary R-32 refrigerant and our Intelligent Eye motion sensor technology, this inverter has been designed for optimum nominal and seasonal energy efficiency, in line with real life operating conditions in the Middle East, underlining our serious commitment to the environment.”

“The Inverter AC constantly adjusts the compressor speed to precisely maintain the desired temperature, and contributes on reducing the energy consumption all year round, for a lower electricity bill,” she said.

“The smart technology utilises an intelligent advanced control that regulates precisely the compressor speed to constantly adjust delivered capacity to meet the desired room temperature. It also provides powerful cooling, quieter operation and an extended product lifetime,” she added.

By using R-32 refrigerant, Daikin inverter AC is able to maximise energy efficiency while minimising the global warming impact with zero ozone depletion potential and up to 80 per cent less CO2 emission than R-410A.

Installed in new systems or retrofitted to existing systems, the split inverter combines the power of the Daikin inverter swing compressor – designed and patented by Daikin – and the R-32 refrigerant, for an energy bill reduction of 30 – 70 per cent and lower use of refrigerants.

Across the GCC, infrastructure development projects, in addition to a steep rise in residential and indoor leisure projects, currently drive demand for new AC units, with the regional market projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.3 per cent during 2017-2023.

But this high pace of growth has increased C02 emissions. According to findings from the UN, total emissions in the Arab region doubled between 1991 and 2008 with Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Egypt leading contributions.

In terms of C02 emissions per capita in the GCC, these had reduced significant after 2010 but remain higher than the global average, with an average up to 30 metric tonnes in Kuwait against 19.8 tonnes in US.

Across the world, 1.6 billion new AC units will be installed to 2050, according to figures published by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

Tuna Gulenc, general manager - MEA, Daikin, added: “As a part of our environmental commitment to society, we believe it is manufacturer’s duty to advise the market and develop sustainable solutions that have practical applications to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions.”

“People in Japan, Europe, China, Australia and other countries, already enjoy the benefits of inverter technology and here at our company, we believe the Middle East will soon follow suit. The use of inverter technology in HVAC units helps each citizen to contribute to the regional efforts to reduce environmental impact,” Gulenc said.

“In line with the evolving directives and strategies on sustainability as a core theme for future developments in the GCC, we are committed at developing and introducing state-of-the-art products and solutions, specifically designed for the region, achieving highest efficiencies, performances, and reliabilities. To put it simply, Daikin has set a new standard in the HVAC Industry,” Gulenc concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
