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.


Register for the new scheme and accrue points on all Toshiba Purchases from Cool Designs (conditions apply).  These points can then be redeemed for Toshiba products, on site tools, Love2shop cards and travel vouchers or marketing activity.  See our website library for more information.

Being on the ball with Cahonas

Thursday, April 16th, 2015

Cahonas Scotland is Scotland’s Male Cancer Awareness Charity committed to raising awareness of Male Cancers (Testicular Cancer, Prostate Cancer & Male Breast Cancer).  They exist to educate Scotland in matters relating to male cancers, reducing discrimination and stigma from the cancer experience & the aim to bring real positive change in Male Cancer Awareness

Cahonas Scotland

Cool Designs Ltd have supported Cahonas Scotland since its inception and the relevance of it in what is the largely male dominated industry we are in.  It was therefore extremely pleasing to receive this message from them:

“I just wanted to send you this message that has been sent to the Cahonas Scotland Facebook page from someone recently diagnosed with Testicular Cancer (attached). 

Thank you for your support and everything you have done to help  – you and all our other supporters help has made this early diagnosis happen.  The awareness raised with the help from your sponsorship and donations has enabled us continue to do the work we can to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of Testicular Cancer, the importance of Self Checks and ultimately the early detection for this young man.

Early detection is key in the battle against this horrible disease and with your support you have helped this young man.

From all at Cahonas Scotland.  Thank you so, so much.”

The message from the person read as follows :

“I’m 30 years old and was diagnosed with testicular cancer in February this year.  I just want to say thanks to Cahonas and the message they shout about self checks.

I, thanks to the information given, from Cahonas Scotland had the knowledge and technique to check my balls properly and detected my cancer early.

If you have just happened upon this page or you have came because you are scared there might be something wrong, then use the power of knowledge that Cahonas Scotland can give and get yourself to the doctors as soon as possible.

I had my orchindectomy and now only need two cycles of chemo because early detection is crucial.

Thank you Cahonas Scotland for spreading this word as loud as you can.

From me and my family”

Fabulous stuff and you can imagine how pleasing it is to reach such a message and know that the support everyone gives goes a very long way indeed.

We’re delighted that a number of industry online news sources have ran with our 10 year anniversary with Toshiba.  This is an important landmark to us with one of our major suppliers and a partnership that has helped shape us in to the business we are today.

With its headquarters in Sunderland, the company also has offices in Warrington, Glasgow and the most recently opened addition in Cannock, Staffs.

Future plans include the creation of a third training centre in Glasgow and a roll-out this year of Toshiba’s expanded training programme covering the fundamentals of air conditioning, design, installation and commissioning.

It will be taking on additional staff to help support expansion, including the appointment of an additional project engineer. There are also plans to expand its recently launched website, to further improve the provision of technical and product information to customers.

“It has always been our intention to grow responsibly,” explained md Darrel Birkett. “This means delivering on our commitments on training and the environment and ensuring, as far as possible, that we only supply bona fide installers who will do a good job and act responsibly. Our emphasis on training is designed to achieve the same thing, by ensuring installations are carried out to the highest standards.”

New Toshiba SMMSi

Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010

2010 Sees the introduction of the next in the series of  Toshiba VRF.  The first product due is the new range of Heat Pump VRF condensing units later this year.  Little known about exactly what breakthrough’s Toshiba have accomplished but we have found that that these systems will include three inverter compressors.  Toshiba made an industry first by making their current VRF fully inverter with each module including two inverter compressors with the ability to isolate each individual compressor if needed.  More on this as we hear it!

Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010

Now available from Toshiba the Bi-Flow console unit.  Available in three sizes at 2.5kW, 3.5kW and 5.0kW the Bi-Flow utilises the latest digital hybrid inverter technology.  The front panel includes a child safety lock and the system gives an auto diagnostic function.  The system use three dedicated condensing units enabling runs of up to 20M.

Of course from Toshiba you would expect energy efficiency to be a prime issue and this model does not disappoint with a COP of up to 4.27 and EER of 4.2.  The main feature of the unit though is it’s Bi-Flow supply providing improved air distribution.

The Bi-Flow system is also able to connect to the Toshiba RAS Multi Condensing units.
