Hitachi, air conditioning

Hitachi Air Conditioning has enhanced its Utopia IVX and ES Series of outdoor units to increase seasonal efficiency and make installation easier. Refinements to the inverter compressor and DC motor and optimising the refrigerant cycle have increased the seasonal performance for both heating and cooling by 4% compared to previous models.

The control capabilities of the Utopia IVX models enable different temperatures to be provided in up to four zones, without the expense of a VRF system.

The Utopia ES unit also caters for an increased number of twin, triple and quad combinations.
