UK: Toshiba has introduced Seiya, a new range of high-wall split air conditioning systems running on lower GWP refrigerant R32.
Based on Toshiba’s pioneering inverter driven twin-rotary compressor for the 7kW condensing unit and single-rotary compressor for smaller capacities, the units are said to achieve an EER of A++ for cooling across the range.
Seiya units have a “silent” function that is said to cut the sound level of the outdoor unit in half, while its “quiet” function reduces sound output from the indoor unit to 19dB(A).
An optional app enables the system to be controlled via a smart phone or other digital device, allowing users to pre-cool or warm their home or workspace remotely, in advance of their return.
Seiya is equipped with Toshiba’s Magic Coil that helps prevent water and dust from adhering to the heat exchange surface. In addition, when the unit is switched off, the fan continues to operate, keeping the coil clean and dry and maintaining the air conditioning’s high energy efficiency.
Seiya boasts an SEER of up to 6.3 and an SCOP of 4.0. It is available in seven sizes, spanning capacities from 1.5 to 6.5kW (cooling) 2.0 to 7.0kW (heating).
