Daikin won the award, “On the strength of the AC giant’s commitment to continually improving the technology.” Said the judges, “The savings that the manufacturer has wrought have not just future-proofed their range, but show others what the future could be.”
Rewarding excellence in the energy business, the Energy Awards are feted as the most respected energy event in the industry. Daikin joined other major energy-conscious brands such as Marks & Spencer, The Co-op and Tesco, each of which collected major award wins at the ceremony in London’s Hilton Hotel in Park Lane on 6 December 2017.
Mark Dyer, Commercial Director at Daikin UK said, “To win another award for the Sky Air A-series really is a major achievement for Daikin UK and reflects the important progress we are making to lead the market towards lower global warming technologies. The judges’ recognition that we have delivered innovations and energy savings across the board with the new Sky Air A-series is incredibly positive – and I look forward to awareness of this spreading out to the wider market.”
As the Energy Awards winners’ brochure explains, “The Sky Air A-series claims energy efficiencies of up to A++ and SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) up to 7.7 reducing running costs and carbon footprint. The manufacturer notes that thanks to its use of R32 refrigerant, it starts off at around 10 per cent more efficient than the predecessor, but with the addition of VRT (Variable Refrigerant Technology, which automatically adjusts the refrigerant temperature to meet the required demand) in the top-spec Alpha, the energy savings are nearer 21 per cent.”
Martin Passingham, Product Manager for DX at Daikin UK, added: “We are delighted that this award recognizes that our Sky Air A-series genuinely leads the way, offering an ideal solution for reducing both energy consumption and running costs while complying with the continuing F-Gas phase down.”
