|PETALING JAYA Group Associated (C&L) Sdn Bhd
(GA), the sole distributor of YORK Air-Conditioner,
has launched recently its latest air-conditioning
model, the YORK Cooling King.
YORK's heavy investments into research
and development bore results with introductions
of new and advanced features for its products
every year including its revolutionary air-conditioners
which have built-in starters (patented).
As crowning achievement, YORK air-conditioners
with built-in starters are the first and only
air-conditioners in the industry approved by Jabatan
Bekalan Elektrik (JBE). Factory preset, the built-in
starters enable more reliable overload protection
thereby reducing the risks of misadjustments by
installation personnel and enhance its safety
YORK Cooling King air-conditioners
also achieved breakthroughs in technological excellence
in the cooling capacity.
The 1 HP Cooling King model has
broken the 10,000 Btu/hr Cooling Capacity, whereas
the 1.5 HP model has passed the 13,000 Btu/hr
These two new wall-mounted split-unit
air-conditioner models are specifically designed
to overcome the discomfort of our hot climate
by being able to produce "instant cooling atmosphere".
The 2 HP and 2.5 HP models will
be introduced into the market soon.
The marketing manager of GA, Yap
Wee Keong, said that the YORK Cooling King model
is a result of YORK's latest breakthrough in air-conditioning
He claimed that this model, manufactured
locally by OYL industries Bhd, is touted to be
the air-conditioner model with the highest cooling
capacity in the market.
"The average cooling capacity of
all the existing 1 HP air-conditioners in the
market is 9,000 Btu/hr, while the YORK Cooling
King is running at 10,000 Btu/hr," said Yap.
The cooling capacity of an air-conditioner
is measured in Btu/hr, the higher the Btu/hr,
the faster the cooling capacity.
YORK's latest model achieves a
new record of cooling capacity through the use
of a high cooling power optima heat exchanger
which increases the cooling surface area resulting
in higher cooling capacity while the physical
size of the unit remains unchanged.
Furthermore, unlike others, YORK's
latest models come with a high EER (Energy Efficient
Ratio) compressor, at 11.3, contributing to great
savings in energy consumption.
Yap added that, apart from the
breakthrough in its cooling capacity, YORK Cooling
King has also many innovative features.
Coupled with the curved heat exchanger,
the YORK Cooling King is also designed to operate
at the lowest noise level - 29dBA at low
speed fan. It has a noise reduction random pitched
fan blade that offers quiet operation and a wide
air-diffusion system that is able to maximise
air distribution. The unit is equipped with an
auto-fault detection that enables the compressor
to automatically cut off when it detects any refrigerant
leakage and deficiency in the system, and hence
helps in prolonging the life span of the compressor.
The unit also comes with a self-diagnosis
system that can detect, and indicate any malfunction
of the unit. Users and maintainance personnel
of Cooling King will easily know what's wrong
with the unit.
YORK's ability to achieve such
results is due to the research and development
support of the OYL Industries Bhd. OYL R&D
centre is situated at Sungai Buloh and it is the
largest R&D centre in the South East Asia.
