If you’re not sure which Toshiba air conditioner you need, here’s a quick look at their range. All residential Toshiba air conditioners come with the DC Twin-rotary compressor and DC Hybrid Inverter, detailed below. To understand the types and price range of different systems read our Ultimate Guide to Air Conditioning.
Toshiba have two ranges of wall split (Hi-wall) – the N3 digital inverter (pictured) and Daiseikai inverter. The N3 is most popular in Perth as it is well priced without comprising on performance or quality. The Daiseikai improves air quality using the Plasma Purifier and negative ions. Both ranges include the Eco-logic setting which achieves up to 25% energy saving compared to the standard setting without sacrificing comfort by slowly adjusting the temperature seetting to a more efficient level.
Air and Water Residential also supplies and installs Toshiba’s four way cassettes and floor consoles.
Toshiba multi-split systems treat up to 5 rooms with either wall splits, cassettes, ducted fan coil unit, floor consoles or a combination of these indoor units. They come in an inverter and demand response enabled range.
Toshiba’s ducted air conditioners (RAV models) can be zoned to reduce the area being treated, reducing the size of system required and running cost. The smaller 10 to 13.5kW models are single phase (RAV-SM1103DT-A to RAV-SM1603DT-A) and larger 13.6 to 20 kW models are three phase.
Toshiba’s ducted systems beat others on the market for their heating (Coefficiency Of Performance) and cooling (Energy Efficiency Rating) rating. This efficiency translates to reduced running cost, making them very popular as they are also competitively priced.
Toshiba ducted air conditioners are compatible with the easy to use WiFi compatible iZone 3 series controller. The iZone comes with the very popular optional iSave system which drastically reduces your air conditioners running cost. Air & Water is the market leader in Perth for installing iZone and iSave sweeping the awards board in 2014.
Toshiba VRF Systems
Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) – also known as VRV- systems are suitable for mid size to large commercial buildings. Toshiba make a mini-VRF suitable for smaller scale developments as well as a VRF for large developments. The benefits of VRF technology include less piping and greater energy efficiency.
Inverter Technology in Toshiba Air Conditioners
Compressors, the outdoor unit which powers the air conditioner, are commonly fixed speed or variable speed (inverter). A fixed speed compressor runs at full capacity and stops when it exceeds the desired temperature and re-starts automatically when the actual temperature deviates from the desired temperature by a couple of degrees. The disadvantage of this are noise and comparatively higher running costs. An inverter compressor varies its speed reducing noise, saving power and enabling a consistent temperature.
Toshiba was the first company to incorporate inverters in their air conditioners and 30+ years later they are still at the forefront of technology with their full range of residential models coming with DC twin-rotary compressor and DC hybrid inverter.
Their DC Twin-rotary compressor ensures accurate compressor rotation minimising noise and vibration – so the sound of the outdoor unit is hardly noticeable. This is a fantastic feature for modern homes where the outdoor unit is placed close to your neighbour’s boundary as you don’t want your neighbours complaining when you run your air conditioner. The twin rotary compressor also ensures power is used more effectively
Toshiba’s exclusive DC Hybrid Inverter integrate two distinct compressor control modules into one design, enabling their units to achieve constant natural comfort with maximum energy efficiency. PAM (Pulse Amplitude Modulation) provides the highest levels of power for when you need to get cool (or warm) fast, while PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) ensures the desired room temperature is maintained with optimum energy efficiency. Both these features explain why Toshiba has a higher energy rating than other leading brands.
To be kind to the environment, all inverter models run on R410A non-ozone depleting refrigerant. They also all come with a built in filter function that produces better airflow and improved air quality throughout the house.
There’s a huge range of options whichever type of air conditioner you decide is right for you, and Toshiba and Air and Water Residential provide plenty of advanced features that will compliment your home as well as contribute to your household’s energy efficienc
