Cooling Post – a new record high

In another barnstorming month, the Cooling Post achieved new records in November for number of visitors, sessions and pages viewed.

Confirming its position as the leading source of news and information on the air conditioning and refrigeration sector, the Cooling Post welcomed 54,711 visitors in November – a 12% increase on the previous best in June. The number of sessions was also a record at 74,036, while page views climbed to a new high of 108,138.

“This month’s figures have been buoyed by a further series of major news stories,” explained editor Neil Everitt. “This included our exclusive revelations about work being carried to develop new low GWP solutions for VRF air conditioning systems [Is this the future for air conditioning?] and being one of the first with news of Carrier’s spin off from UTC. We also beat Reuters in being the first English language news outlet to bring you the story of Daikin’s purchase of refrigeration manufacturer AHT.”
