Lennox adds Multi Heads to the Range
New to Lennox is the range of Multi-Head Split System Air Conditioners.
Multi-head air conditioners are a space saving and economic solution for new or retro-fit residential and light commercial installations.
With two models to choose from, Lennox Multi-heads can offer heating or cooling to up to five rooms with all indoor units connected to just one outdoor unit.
“The multi-head indoor units are compact and installation friendly, resulting in less downtime for the installer. They are an easier retro-fit than ducted split air conditioners and also offer low operational noise”, commented Darshan Nagarsekar, Heatcraft Australia & New Zealand Human Comfort Senior Category Manager.
The use of DC inverter technology delivers superior and energy efficient temperature control. Plus, each indoor unit is supplied with an easy to use remote control for customised room temperature settings.
Lennox Multi-Split Air Conditioners come with a Lennox five year parts and labour warranty.
