Jeff Goss, Senior Manager for Product Management & Business Development – AC, Ruud, speaking to an audience that included contractors, consultants and dealers, elaborated on the key benefits of the series, including its reliability, the communiqué said.

The Renaissance offers high EER that exceeds the proposed Ministry of Electricity and Water (MEW) regulation of 1.4 kW/tonne, thus ensuring high performance even in peak summer season, Goss said. The product is extremely durable, thanks to critical components, like its Scroll Compressor, made in North America, Goss further said. The Renaissance is easy to service, with innovative features, such as a ‘Quik Clean Slide Out’ drain pan and its protected service port access, which saves servicing time and cost, Goss added. With a sand trap-louvred jacket, its condenser coil stays protected from sand and debris, making it a perfect product for the Gulf region, Goss further added.

According to the communiqué, Ruud used the event to showcase its other air conditioning products, including its ducted and VRF ranges.

The ducted air conditioner has a low-profile slim air handler – the VL3T – which offers convertible return air arrangement and saves space during installation, the communiqué said, adding that this also leaves more space for service. Ruud also has an American Style indoor unit – the VHSL/LL – which installs in four different airflow configurations, providing flexibility in installation as well making it easy to install in tight spaces, the communiqué said. For high system performance and durability, these come along with a top-discharge condensing unit, the communiqué said. Its metallic powder-coated louvred cabinet is tested for durability by UL of USA, and its North American Scroll Compressor ensures high efficiency, the communiqué added. The product can provide a total equivalent piping length of up to 90m and is suitable for medium- to high-rise buildings, the communiqué further added.

According to the communiqué, Ruud’s VRF system comes with a wide operation range, which makes it suitable for all seasons. It is tested up to 56 degrees C ambient temperature by third-party laboratories and provides uninterrupted cooling at high-ambient temperature, the communiqué said, adding that its auto dust-removal feature makes it suitable for the Gulf market.
