Daikin UK's auto cleaning duct wins ancillary air conditioning product of the year at the ACR News Awards


Daikin UK was presented with the Ancillary Air Conditioning Product of the Year Award  at the ACR News Awards 2018.Designed to recognise innovation in the air conditioning and refrigeration industry, the ACR News Awards took place on the 24th January 2018 in London.

This prestigious award win comes only a week after the win for the Sky Air A-Series at the National ACR & Heat Pump (HACR&HP) Awards in Liverpool. 

Martin Passingham, Product Manager for DX at Daikin UK said, “We are delighted to continue our winning streak during this year’s awards season and are particularly pleased that the Auto-Cleaning Duct has been recognised for its innovative, energy-efficient performance.”

Launched in 2017, the Auto-Cleaning Duct offers lower maintenance and running costs, while providing a 20% energy saving. 

Designed specifically for hotel, office and residential applications, the Auto-Cleaning Duct prevents dust formation within indoor ducted units by keeping the filter consistently clean thanks to an automated filter cleaning system.  

By collecting debris in a dust box that can be simply emptied using a standard vacuum cleaner, the Auto-Cleaning Duct accessory ensures easy maintenance, minimal disruption on site, and significantly reduces the likelihood of system failure due to clogged vents.

Martin Passingham continued, “We’re incredibly proud that our recent innovations have been acknowledged, and that Daikin UK continues to lead the way in providing cost-effective products that have a wealth of benefits for both the installer and the end-client.”
