Cool Designs Ltd (CDL), one of the UK’s largest independent air conditioning distributors, has added Carrier’s new Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) system to its portfolio in recognition of the product’s high-quality build, advanced features and excellent energy efficiency.
Darrel Birkett, Managing Director of CDL, stated that his association with TCUK for 17 years has helped him build a strong customer following based on quality and customer service. With the launch of Carrier’s XCT7 VRF, he wanted to expand his product offerings.
After a detailed product evaluation, Darrel Birkett explained: “The Carrier VRF is impressive. We were initially concerned that it was just going to be another budget range entering the market, which is not where we want to be, as CDL specialises in premium technology. However, having seen the product, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Build quality is first class – it is totally solid, very well built and a very competitive price level.”
CDL is now adding the Carrier VRF to its air conditioning range alongside Toshiba’s latest VRF product, as the company believes Carrier’s XCT7 VRF makes an excellent companion.
The Carrier system is highly flexible and can be used in a wide range of applications and building types, from mini-VRF projects to large buildings, with extended pipe runs and height separation of up to 110 meters, plus full connectivity to a building management system (BMS) for optimised control. It also has multiple options to connect to air handling units (AHUs) from a single refrigerant circuit, providing more flexibility for system designers.
