Local electronics giant Walton has announced eight years replacement guarantee on the compressors of its intelligent inverter air conditioners for domestic users.
Besides, commercial users will get three years replacement guarantee on compressors. Earlier, the replacement guarantees were 3 years for domestic users while 2 years for commercial users. ACs, which were purchased from the beginning of the year, will come under the upgraded guarantee facilities.
The Walton authorities made the announcement at a declaration programme held at its media office in city's Motijheel on Thursday (April 27).
Eva Rezwana, Chief Coordinator of Walton marketing, Humayun Kabir, Executive Director (PR & Media), Engr. Abdul Malek Sikder, Senior Deputy Operative Director (In charge of Refrigeration-Electronics), Anisur Rahman Mollick, First Senior Additional Director (Refrigerator & AC Service Development), Engr. Sondip Biswas, Deputy Director, Engr. Azmal Ferdous, Additional Director were among other top officials present at the declaration programme.
Speaking on the occasion, Eve Rezwana, Executive Director of Walton, said, inclusion of intensive energy saving intelligent inverter AC on Walton product line is a great milestone. Walton presents consumers with world's latest technology products. Eight years replacement guarantee has been announced because we are hundred percent sure about the high standard, quality and life span of the compressors.
The compressor of intelligent inverter AC has turbo-mode technology, which ensures fast cooling, Engr. Abdul Malek Sikder said. In this technology, special programing of microprocessor controls the speed of compressor through a PCB or motherboard according to room temperature, which saves electricity.
Besides, Walton intelligent inverter AC uses environment friendly R-410a gas as refrigerant that saves up to 60 percent energy and ensures long life of compressors.
Authorities say compressor is the heart of an AC, which ensures better performance of the product. Mentioning that high quality compressors are used in Walton intelligent inverter ACs, they said, in contrary, many manufacturers use low quality compressors for more profit, which ultimately causes suffering for the consumers.
The Walton authorities claim that the use of ultra-modern technology, accurate BTU (British thermal unit), golden fin along with affordable prices, 6-month replacement guarantee, highest 36-month installment facility and countrywide sales and service points are the main factors for which Walton ACs have become the first choice of consumers.
Anisur Rahman Mollick, First Senior Additional Director (Refrigerator & AC Service Development) of Walton, said the efficiency and durability of the compressors used in Walton inverter ACs are more than double than normal compressors.
Walton authorities said the intelligent inverter technology has been used initially in 1.5 Ton ACs. However, the technology will be applied to 2 Ton ACs soon.
Engineers informed that Walton, for the first time in Bangladesh, has used anti corrosive hydrophilic golden fin on evaporator of ACs, which prevents decaying caused by dust, moisture and dryness of air and boosts the efficiency and durability of heat exchanger in the condenser relieving users to clean it regularly.
