Toshiba has introduced a new range of ultra-quiet high-wall split air conditioning systems running on R32 refrigerant.

Based on Toshiba’s inverter driven twin-rotary compressor for the 7kW condensing unit and single-rotary compressor for smaller capacities, the heat pump-based SEIYA units are designed to deliver year-round cooling and heating, with a European Efficiency Rating of A++ for cooling across the range.
Toshiba sales director Neil Hitching said: “SEIYA’s performance-to-price ratio makes it an outstanding and cost-effective solution for residential and small commercial applications requiring superior comfort levels and low noise operation. With demand for air conditioning expanding in this sector, we believe the product will be highly attractive for home-owners and small businesses, such as restaurants, shops, dental surgeries, home-workers’ offices, and hairdressing and beauty salons.”

SEIYA units have a “silent” function that cuts the sound level of the outdoor unit by half, overcoming disturbance to neighbours at night, while its “quiet” function reduces sound output from the indoor unit to 19dB(A), enabling occupants to sleep undisturbed.

The inverter-driven rotary compressor constantly matches cooling and heating output to the current load, minimising temperature fluctuations to ensure comfortable conditions and minimise energy use and running costs.
 
SEIYA is equipped with Toshiba’s Magic Coil, which 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 energy efficiency.

The range has a Seasonal European Efficiency Rating (SEER) of up to 6.3 and a Seasonal Coefficient of Performance (SCOP) of 4.0, and is available in seven sizes, spanning capacities from 1.5 to 6.5 kW (Cooling) 2.0 to 7.0 kW (Heating).

An intuitive optional app enables the system to be controlled from anywhere.
