Sharp Air Conditioners
Chillaire Limited were one of the few companies offering Sharp air conditioners, that were one of the few air conditioning, heat pump inverter systems available back in the 1980’s to the late 1990’s. These Sharp systems were ideally suited for the domestic / residential air conditioning market. The Sharp inverter heat pump technology was ideal for conservatories, bedrooms & the lounge area.
The Sharp indoor units were sleek and small in size, one of the few in those days.
Recently it has been reported that Daikin may be a potential buyer of the Sharp air conditioning business in unconfirmed news reports emanating from Japan.
While having a presence in Europe – mainly in central and Eastern Europe – Sharp only ever flirted with the UK market. Chillaire Limited acquired these systems through one of the Sharp appointed national distributors Climate Equipment based in Solihull.
Sharp apart from specialising in residential air conditioning systems, also distributed a wide range of commercial type of portable units, split type systems and multi split type systems.
Chillaire have been a long standing distributor of Daikin equipment, going back to the early 1990’s, first starting to supply and install through Cooling Services (now part of Daikin UK Limited) and becoming a D1 partner soon after, having won dealer of the Midlands region in 1998, 1999 & 2003.
