Sanyo HVAC recently introduced its new applied products division, which will focus on supporting the sales, training and service of Sanyo’s ECO-i Variable Refrigerant Flow systems.

Sanyo said it has staffed this division with specially trained applications and sales engineers who will provide consulting assistance on system layout and design. The technical and service group will provide installation and service training, telephone technical support, and initial start-up assistance at jobsites.

The manufacturer says these products are ecologically friendly and are ideal for hospitals, nursing homes and other commercial properties. The products use an inverter-driven compressor to maintain a constant temperature, thus helping to save energy and keep the environment at a comfortable temperature.

“Inverter technology maximizes capacity quickly to allow a room to reach the required temperature more rapidly than non-inverter systems,” said Davis Watkins, vice president of applied systems. “In addition, inverter technology eliminates the frequent stopping and starting often required by standard systems in order to maintain consistent temperature conditions.”

Rather than starting the motor up and stopping it when the desired room temperature is reached, Sanyo’s DC inverter technology adjusts the speed of the compressor in order to maintain the desired temperature.
