JEDDAH, Saudi Arabia

Carrier, the world's leader in high technology heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) solutions, has launched a new line of energy-efficient residential and light commercial HVAC systems that use Puron®, the R-410A non-ozone depleting refrigerant. Carrier, which operates in Saudi Arabia through Arabian Air Conditioning Company Limited and Carrier Saudi Service Company Limited, its joint venture companies with E.A. Juffali & Brothers Limited, is part of UTC Building & Industrial Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX). 

The products were introduced to more than 450 participants at dealer events held last month in Dammam, Riyadh and Jeddah. The events featured presentations from Carrier factory representatives in Saudi Arabia, Korea and China, highlighting the products' capabilities and new efficiency ratings.

Featured products included the new Xpression™ Pro Hi Wall unit with a unique ionizer filtration system and the DesertMaster™ roof top package units with an extended range, both of which run on Puron, the R-410A non-ozone depleting refrigerant. Carrier's new Creation Pro Hi Wall unit, Comfort Pro floor standing unit and Décor™ Pro Cassette unit feature advanced filtration and distinctive air management systems. The new Carrier Naseem™ window room air-conditioner series offers good performance in an efficient package for residential customers, as the unit is easy to maintain and offers optimum comfort with a 3 speed control system. Carrier's line of residential products fully complies with the new Saudi Arabian Standards Organization (SASO) regulations, offering reduced energy consumption and improved performance.

"We play an active role in the Saudi green building segment and are committed to environmental stewardship and sustainable innovation," said Nader Antar, managing director, UTC Building & Industrial Systems Saudi Arabia, the recently expanded joint venture between UTC Building & Industrial Systems and E.A. Juffali & Brothers. "Our new products are the latest in a series of energy-efficiency developments designed specifically for the Saudi Arabian market and distributed with the support of our dealers' network across the country."
