In a major commitment to environmental pool heating technology, Sunlover Heating has claimed sole Australian agency for the high tech OASIS brand heat pumps.
OASIS has been on the Australian market for a number of years and Sunlover Heating now assumes local control of the brand with the launch of a new range designed to minimise operating cost and environmental impact, while delivering maximum heat transfer performance from the surrounding air.
Sunlover Heating managing director Rohan London said the OASIS agency is part of an agreement with New Zealand pool heating industry leader Michael Ridenton. “Michael has worked closely with the manufacturer in China to develop this range of high performance heat pumps. Stock is available and we are now launching our OASIS agency to the trade nationally,” Rohan London said.
Michael Ridenton said significant investment had been made in the development of this product range to ensure it is the most efficient and environmentally sound heat pump on the market. “Built in an ISO9001 quality accredited factory, these are high specification heat pumps,” he said.
“OASIS heat pumps feature ozone friendly refrigerant, scroll compressors, reverse cycle defrost for low ambient conditions, thermostatic expansion valves, flow switches, top end Italian digital self diagnosing controllers, heat and chill controllers, fan speed controllers for the cooling function, blue fin coil protection and titanium heat exchangers.
“Every product is test run at the factory and trade customers will be comfortable with our national 24 hour seven day a week product support service agreement with Frigrite,” said Michael Ridenton.
The Sunlover Heating agreement with Michael Ridenton includes ongoing product improvement to ensure that the brand holds its premium product position in the market. “These will be among the most highly specified heat pumps in the market. They will be easy to sell with their long list of environmental and cost saving features,” said Rohan London.
“We are able to deliver this high quality product at a price which compares more than favourably to other heat pump brands. OASIS will bring the cost of a heat pump closer to gas heater prices, with running costs that are significantly lower. These economic incentives, together with the environmental benefits, will encourage more rapid consumer acceptance of heat pumps.
“To help our trade customers market these exciting new products, Michael will work with Sunlover to provide product familiarisation training for trade customers and ongoing product development. With the long list of advantages this range offers, resellers will want to take advantage of this product knowledge opportunity to make sure they can present the full OASIS story to their customers,” said Rohan London.
A qualified engineer with 20 years experience as a heat pump specialist with Carrier and his own New Zealand company, Michael Ridenton was also an international soccer player. He played 40 matches for the New Zealand All Whites and was a professional player in the UK for three years.
The OASIS heat pump range will be a highlight of the Sunlover Heating stand at the 2008 Splash Pool & Spa Trade Show. Sunlover Heating also stocks Carrier brand heat pumps.
