At the AHR 2012 Expo in Chicago, Daikin AC (Americas), Inc. announced that it had achieved the position of number one in HVAC sales worldwide in 2011. Featuring the news on their overhead banner and in multiple locations in their booth, the news caused quite a “buzz” on the show floor. In addition to this exciting news, Daikin displayed a number of product line enhancements for 2012, and gave a series of live training presentations in the booth.

On the residential side, Daikin displayed the new streamlined L-Series Single-Split products with efficiencies up to SEER 24.5, introducing a three-tier strategy that should resonate well with contractors and consumers. Multi-Split systems were on display showing expanded indoor unit capacities and over 1,000 connection combinations, capturing the interest of many visitors. A new inverter ducted (unitary) system was announced with an expanded range up to 42MBH, efficiencies up to SEER 20 and estimated availability of June 2012.

The Daikin Altherma air-to-water heat pump received great reviews from visitors focused on energy efficient “green” solutions, impressed by its heating capacity and combined solution for domestic hot water and solar options.

Commercial products featured included the new FCQ round flow cassette, FBQ ducted and FTXS wall-mount fan coils for the SkyAir series, offering improved comfort, easier installation and up to 35 percent higher SEER levels (up to SEER 19.3).
