The growing trend of both first-home buyers and now last-home buyers, downsizing to smaller, high luxury living options, has inspired the latest additions to Seeley International’s innovative Braemar range, and offer great safety, reliability and energy efficiency, even when space is at a premium.
Seeley International Founder and Executive Chairman, Mr Frank Seeley AM, DUniv Flin, FAICD, says the trusted Braemar brand has reinforced itself as simply the best, together with the addition of an amazing new fixed speed Add-on Cooling Range, a new Ultra Compact Low Profile Ducted Gas Heater and the R32 Window Wall System.
“Braemar has now taken safety, reliability and energy efficiency to a brand new multi-million-dollar level across its entire range, and our suite of new product options, showcases versatility to those wanting to live in smaller units, townhouses, or apartments*, without sacrificing creature comforts,” Mr Seeley said.
“The Australian residential building boom continues to defy predictions of a downturn, and this has largely been achieved by a surge in approvals for smaller dwellings. A growing number of Australians are now opting to follow lifestyles already enjoyed in some of the world’s greatest cities such as Paris and New York, where inner city living means vibrant eating and entertainment options, right on the doorstep,” he said.
“Over the past 25 years, the number of occupied apartments, flats and units in Australia has increased by 78% and now numbers over 1.2 million dwellings**. Our new Braemar products provide people with versatile solutions that allow them to stay comfortable, regardless of how big or small their home might be.”
The New Braemar Ultra Compact Ducted Gas Heater series offers 14kW, 20.5kW and a larger capacity 27.5 kW output options, with all models providing side access for easy servicing – making it the ideal choice for small space installations such as low roof pitched homes. Maximum heating efficiency is achieved with the introduction of an InShot Burner™ which ensures a thorough air/gas mix for clean and efficient combustion. Exclusive Braemar technology ensures continuous warm air without any cold drafts thanks to a Softair™ fan system, while clever ignition technology removes the need for a pilot light, delivering additional gas savings and ensuing the heater works every time.
The Braemar R32 Window Wall System is also packed with clever technology, which now includes a 3-speed fan with Auto Mode, allowing the air conditioner to automatically adjust the fan speed as the room temperature changes. A handy Sleep Function changes the set point temperature after one and then two hours to facilitate a more natural sleep pattern. Also, fresh air can be easily delivered by adjusting a slider to expel smoke and any odours from the room, and provide ventilation. Anti-Corrosion Protection is provided by Hydrophilic Blue Fin Coils and a galvanised and painted slide-out chassis which means the Braemar R32 Window Wall System can withstand the harshest of conditions. Digital displays*** enable users to operate the air conditioners, either via the digital control panel on the unit, or the remote control.
The Amazing Braemar Fixed Speed Add-on Cooling (AOC) range offers the convenience of using existing duct systems**** to integrate new cooling systems with current gas ducted heating systems, to ensure welcome relief from Summer’s extreme temperatures. The indoor AOC unit has an easy single point connection to existing ductwork, built-in safety tray and easy installation. It comes in a broad range of models to accommodate different dwelling sizes, from 10kW through to 23kW capacity, and integrated flare connections on most models avoids the need to take heavy brazing equipment into the roof space.
The outdoor AOC units provide the convenience of flexible (small space) outdoor placement (including enough refrigerant for 12m of pipework), built-in carry handles and smaller footprints than other brands currently on the market. Long life weather protection, efficient whisper-quiet 3-speed fans and vertical air discharges, which improves air circulation, and as a result, performance.
“Braemar has a reputation for quality and reliability with its award-winning gas heating range, as well as its high performing evaporative air conditioners. Braemar ducted gas heaters drastically reduce energy use while delivering heat fast, and Braemar evaporative air conditioners are highly reliable and super-efficient, whether people are looking for beautifully cooled homes, or ultra-comfortable commercial environments,” Mr Seeley said.
