Training Update

Thursday, February 25th, 2016

High demand leads to additional training days

We have updated our training schedule (brochure found here) due to an increase in training demand this year.

With the introduction of the new Toshiba Warranty in 2016 and the ease in which contractors can benefit from a 7 year warranty, we have added additional dates and venues.  The updated schedule can be found within the training brochure found in the link above.

As a reminder, training with Cool Designs is free of charge with refreshments provided on the day.  They are held at our hands on Glasgow, Sunderland and Warrington offices and can also be held at the Toshiba offices in Leatherhead (for Toshiba training) and Fujitsu offices (for Fujitsu training).

Toshiba 7 Year Warranty & updated Rewards scheme

Monday, February 15th, 2016

Toshiba Air Conditioning have reworked their warranty scheme so once again set new standards in the industry.

Traditionally, manufacturers award warranty term based on the annual spend of the contractor or end user.  Rather than take this commercial view, Toshiba has now linked their warranty term not to turnover, but to workmanship.

Toshiba T7 Enhanced Warranty

The standard off the shelf warranty for Toshiba Air Conditioning is now the T5, 5 years parts & labour allowance (no minimum spend).  Then by completing a set 3 training courses at any of our hands on training locations Glasgow, Sunderland or Warrington plus Toshiba’s own Leatherhead facility, this warranty is lifted up to T7 – 7 years, again with no minimum spend.

This means now that all contractors, no matter the business size, can benefit from a 7 year warranty.

The top tier in the scheme is the T7e, 7 Year Enhanced Warranty.  By completing the training & submitting commissioning and maintenance data, the warranty is 7 years but with an enhanced labour allowance.  Contact Cool Designs for further detail or see our library documents section (general info drop down) for more information.

Following on from this, Toshiba have updated their rewards scheme.  The additions scheme has now ended and is replaced with the updated Toshiba Rewards Scheme.

Toshiba win ACR Product of the Year

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016

Toshiba has been awarded the National ACR Product of the Year for the new SMMS-e VRF System.

Developments in three core technologies – the compressor, heat exchanger and advanced intelligent control – combine to ensure all outdoor units in the new SMMS-E VRF range have an ESEER (European Seasonally Adjusted Energy Efficiency Rating} higher than 7, an industry first.

Wear surfaces on compression vanes are treated with a high-tech Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating, giving outstanding hardness,wear resistance and reliability. This enables significant increase in compressor rotation speed, resulting in a higher displacement volume. Up to 50 per cent great than previous generations.

The heat exchanger has been completely redesigned, which results in a 13 percent increase in surface area available for heat transfer.It provides continuous heating with no requirement to stop during defrost. This is made possible by the use of a new hot-gas bypass control.

A new approach to intelligent operation gives occupants improved comfort, energy efficiency an reliability by using the independent Pulse Motor Valves (PMV’s) to control the flow of refrigerant to each indoor unit.

Wireless commissioning allows performance data and status reports to be automatically emailed to end users or engineers.  Pipe work and connectivity has been increased,  giving double the previous allowable length.

Finally,as a result of the new compressors design and improved system controls, the operating temperature range has been significantly extended, and is now -5 to 46°C for cooling operation and -25 °C in heating mode.

The new Toshiba SMMS-e VRF is now available from Cool Designs Ltd
