Ururu-Sarara, from DAIKIN AC SPAIN
The new feature of this residential HVAC system lies in the use of the environmentally-friendly refrigerant R32, which improves on the performance of current refrigerants. It also offers design, comfort, efficiency, environmentally-friendly operation and innovation. Its new fin design directs the air and manages to avoid direct draughts being felt by the user. Cold air is directed upward leading to an improved distribution of air around the room. If operating with heated air, an additional flap is used that directs the air towards the floor to ensure that the heating remains even and to prevent stratification of the air. Additionally, it is possible to use the motion sensor, which if activated detects people and diverts the air flow to another part of the room. Finally, Ururu-Sarara is capable of humidifying in winter without the need of adding water.
