Airedale and Mitsi bid for H&V News Award

Airedale_TurboChillUK: Airedale and Mitsubishi Electric are carrying the torch for the air conditioning industry in the forthcoming H&V News Awards.

The multi-award-winning Airedale R1234ze TurboChill chiller is again amongst the short-listed products for another of the UK’s increasing number of industry awards ceremonies.

The British-manufactured chiller has already picked up two commendations and is shortlisted for three more awards already in 2015. Airedale won the same category last year with its SmartCool dedicated chilled water precision air conditioning system.

The TurboChill is joined by Mitsubishi Electric’s recently launched City Multi YLM range of VRF air conditioners in competing for the Commercial Building Services Product of the Year category alongside six other short-listed finalists.

Daikin’s Altherma Hybrid heat pump is also featured amongst the finalists – for Domestic H&V Product of the Year (Heating and Controls).

The Air Movement Product of the Year category sees Ability Projects’ Matrix Multi-Room fan coil system up against six other finalists including Clivet’s Zephir3 packaged air supply and energy recovery system, the Lindab Solus high temperature cooling and low temperature heating beam and Nuaire’s Ductmaster thermal ducting.

The winners will be announced at a special dinner at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on 16 April 2015.
