Actron Air was recognised by the HVAC&R industry recently with the AIRAH Award 2014 for Excellence in Sustainability. The AIRAH award recognises the energy efficiency achievements of Actron Air’s ESP Platinum split ducted technology.

Actron Air’s new managing director Norman Windell explained that ESP Platinum was researched, developed, designed and manufactured at their Bella Vista head office, specifically to deliver significant air conditioning power savings to residential and light commercial operations. Optimising seasonal energy efficiency was a major driver of the ESP Platinum’s design.

According to Mr Windell, the ESP Platinum is the most advanced ducted air conditioner ever built in Australia and offers the lowest running costs in its class. Testing and energy modelling reveal that the ESP Platinum series uses up to 75 percent less electricity compared to conventional fixed speed systems and up to 50 percent compared to conventional inverter systems. Users can achieve savings of up to $900 per annum on energy bills (based on electricity price of 24c per kW/H).

ESP Platinum ducted air conditioners incorporate Actron Air’s proprietary Energy Smart Zoning as well as its latest Variable Fan technology to deliver intuitive air flow control. It also has a wider capacity range of 20 – 100 percent and delivers more precise temperature control with a superior operating range of -15°C to +50°C.
