Toshiba highlights benefits of R32

Published:  07 January, 2019

Toshiba Air conditioning, R32

Toshiba Air Conditioning has published a new suite of brochures with up-to-date information on its latest R32 refrigerant-based Mirai, Shorai & Daiseikai residential air conditioning systems, as well as the full range of Digital Inverter and Super Digital Inverter light commercial split system range. Toshiba Air Conditioning UK is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp.

The publications follow the company’s recent move to R32 refrigerant and set out the benefits for end users and the environment. Two infographics illustrate the properties of the refrigerant and its improved environmental performance.

David Dunn, managing director of Toshiba Air Conditioning in the UK, says: “Customers may be aware of the significantly lower Global Warming Potential (GWP) of R32 compared with outgoing R410A. However, it is not widely appreciated that the technology employed by Toshiba means our systems have a 30per cent lower refrigerant charge. In the case of R32 systems, the combined effect of lower inherent GWP and reduced charge results in an 80per cent reduction in total equivalent kilograms of carbon dioxide for Toshiba air conditioners.”
