Haier Expert air conditioning technology was awarded this year’s Red Dot Product Design Award for its industry-leading design and performance. The Red Dot Award, one of the world’s largest design competitions hosted every year since 1955, is one of the most sought-after marks of quality for good design.
The awards’ jury commented:
“The Haier Expert captivates with restrained design and expresses strong performance and reliability in an impressive way. It’s equipped with the new UVC Pro module which can generate plasma to inhibit bacteria and viruses for a healthier and cleaner room air. The fundamentally simple installation, disassembly, cleaning and maintenance helps installers manage time efficiently. Haier Expert has redefined the concept of a healthy air conditioner.”
The new Haier Expert indoor unit with UVC Pro technology raises comfort to new levels. With its stylish, matt white finish and clean-cut lines, the Expert ensures comfort at all times. The new Expert delivers high energy efficiency levels of A+++/A++ and available in 2.5kW, 3.5kW and 5kW sizes.
The range includes for the first time the new UVC Pro module which generates plasma to aid sterilisation for a healthier, cleaner, room air environment. The new UVC Pro has been independently tested by Texcell to inhibit SARS-CoV-2 at the unit to 99.991 per cent effectiveness. The UVC Pro is also fast acting and was tested to achieve 86.80 per cent effectiveness in a room space of 6.7m3 in only four hours.
Designed with the installer in mind, the simple yet clever structure allows for easy maintenance and is packed with features including a fan that can be fully detached for thorough cleaning by the removal of only one screw making it easy to disassemble. There’s also easy access to the PCB and motor through the internal layout, an L-shaped support kickstand and detachable bottom cover offering larger operation space for the installer and flexible two-way water drainage.
The Red Dot Design Award recognises the strength of Haier’s air conditioning products in industrial design and technological innovation and shows how Haier continues to provide professional and smart healthy air solutions through technological innovation.
