The advanced Estia heat pump range from Toshiba Air Conditioning (a division of Toshiba Carrier UK Limited) is believed to be the first to achieve full approval under three key industry certification bodies, namely the MCS, British Kitemark and NFPAC approval schemes.
The most recently awarded NFPAC mark certifies compliance with energy performance and sound power levels in accordance with European standards.
The three approvals apply to the full Estia range, including Toshiba’s latest 4 Series, spanning heat pumps from 8kW to 14kW heating capacity.
Following the achievement, Estia heat pumps have been specified for use on a very large residential development currently being rolled out.
David Dunn, Toshiba Air Conditioning UK general manager, says: “The triple approval for Estia is, we believe, an industry first and gives complete reassurance to customers and end users that the product complies with the very latest standards. It also enables clients to gain financial assistance through the MCS/RHI scheme.”
He added: “Estia units combine efficiency, low noise and high quality manufacture, all obviously highly desirable. When you add cost-effectiveness and a shortened pay-back, the Estia range offers an unbeatable package that puts Estia ahead of the pack.”
As energy prices continue to rise and heat pumps are increasingly seen as a mainstream solution, Toshiba has plans to extend the Estia range in the near future to meet anticipated growth in demand for heat pumps.
