Daikin’s Sky Air A-series range of R32 air conditioners has won a second award, picking up the Energy Efficient Product of the Year HVACR at the Energy Awards 2017. This accolade, presented at London’s Hilton Hotel on Wednesday, followed success in last year’s Cooling Awards. The Sky Air A-series claims energy efficiencies of up to A++ and SEER up to 7.7.
