Fujitsu General has launched a new wall-mounted Comfort cooling-only range in what it says is its latest solution for energy-efficient in-home cooling, featuring four models from 2.5kW–7.1kW.
“It is important that Australians have complete control of their indoor climate when outdoor conditions are hot and humid,” says Fujitsu General Head of Product ANZ Kyle Rafter. “Everyone should feel like their home is the most comfortable place to be, especially during the Australian summer, and the new Comfort cooling range can help deliver that feeling.
“This range provides optimal performance in hotter climates, with a cooling operation range up to 50°C ambient temperature while remaining energy efficient and visually appealing.”
The new range uses R32 refrigerant, has a hot climate energy performance of up to five stars, and are demand enabled response compatible. A super-quiet mode operates fans at low speed to produce less noise, while a powerful operation mode allows the system to reach the setting temperature quickly. Users can adjusted the temperature setting by 0.5°C increments using the wireless remote control.
Other features include economy mode, program timer, up/down swing louvre, and auto restart.
“The Comfort cooling range was designed to be reliable and able to withstand harsh summer climates, with silicone coating on high-voltage components and blue fin treatment to the outdoor heat exchanger, which improves its resistance to corrosion,” Rafter says. “The heat exchanger of the indoor unit also features high corrosion resistant copper, which is more resilient and stronger than standard or oxygen-free copper tubing when exposed to corrosive environments.”
Rafter says the units are also designed to improve air quality.
“Fine dust, invisible mould spores and harmful microorganisms are absorbed onto the apple-catechin filter by static electricity,” he says, “and further growth is inhibited and deactivated by the polyphenol ingredient extracted from apples. The ion-deodorisation filter deodorises the air by decomposing absorbed odours using the oxidising and odour-reducing effects of ion generated by the ultra-fine particle ceramic.”
The new Comfort range comes with a five-year parts and labour warranty. The range was voted Reader’s Digest Most Trusted Brand in the air conditioning category from 2018–2022 and awarded highly commended in 2023.
