Daikin UK has expanded its Bluevolution air conditioning portfolio with the launch of its R32-based, Sky Air A-series range.

Consisting of the Sky Air Alpha, Advance and Active-series, the new units offer an easy and quick installation as well as superior energy efficiency and reduced running costs for end users.

Following the successful launch of its first commercial R32 air conditioning range in 2016, Daikin UK has expanded its portfolio using the energy efficient and environmentally friendly refrigerant.

The new Sky Air A-series ensures an easy on-site installation, as the units are considerably lighter than their predecessors with longer pipe runs. The efficiency of the installation process is further improved by the inclusion of pre-charged pipe runs, which reduces the need for installers to purchase additional gas for runs shorter than 40m.

The entire Sky Air range incorporates an opening front plate, enabling quicker and more convenient access to service components. Further reducing time onsite, the range also features an integrated leak check function, which creates intelligent reports onsite. This feature significantly increases the speed and safety of system maintenance.

Suitable for light commercial applications including restaurants, retail stores and small offices, the Sky Air A-series offers quiet operation - with the Alpha unit being the quietest on the market operating at 46dB(A) - minimising disruption and creating a comfortable work and leisure environment.

The Sky Air A-series is compatible with the Daikin online controller. Accessed via a tablet or mobile device, the system provides end-clients with intuitive control of the units, allowing a real-time response to changes made both onsite and offsite.

Featuring the proven benefits of Daikin Variable Refrigerant Technology (VRT), the Sky Air A-series automatically adjusts the refrigerant temperature to meet the required demand.

Improving the system efficiency, VRT ensures that the system always operates at its optimum efficiency.

Martin Passingham, product manager for DX at Daikin UK, said: "By expanding our Bluevolution range, we are further defining our position as pioneers of R32. With a highly efficient swing compressor designed and manufactured specifically for use with R32 refrigerant, the new series offers improved efficiency and significantly reduced risks of leaks.

"A futureproof solution to the F-Gas phase down, the Sky Air A-series offers end-users improved energy efficiency, durability and environmental credentials."
