7. Do RCACs carry energy efficiency labels?
8. Does CLP sell RCACs?
Air-conditioners can only cool air, where RCACs can either cool and warm air depending on your need.
Three types: window, split and window split types. Nowadays, most of them in the market are window and split types.
RCAC reverses the cooling process to let warm air flow indoor. The whole process will not brought dust from outside, so that it makes your house clean and clear.
For a room of approximately 65 sq. ft, RCAC can save up to 70% of the electricity cost on average during emission of warm air.
In general, RCACs are just as reliable and durable as air-conditioners under normal operating condition.
In a room of about 65 sq. ft., a split type RCAC is about 4 times faster than an oil radiator in raising the room temperature by 12°C. This is because RCAC can distribute warm air efficiently.
Several RCAC models have already carried energy efficiency labels.
There are many RCAC models available in the market and many electrical appliances stores sell them. CLP does not produce, distribute or sell RCACs. We are here just to promote the benefits of RCACs.
