RLBS Use These Trusted Brands Air Conditioning Systems


Toshiba VRF technology, installed by RLBS. TOSHIBA offers the best solution for large commercial and industrial buildings: including hotels, hospitals, leisure and shopping centers. The dual inverter compressor guarantees high efficiency levels, operating flexibility and reduced maintenance requirements.

The wide range of indoor units makes VRF systems the most flexible choice to satisfy any kind of requirement.VRF delivers maximum power and energy savings With the new generation of Variable Refrigerant Flow units, MiNi-SMMS, SMMS cooling only and heat pump and SHRM heat recovery ranges, Toshiba sets new technological standards, incorporating DC twinrotary compressors in all outdoor units, compatible with the high density refrigerant R-410A.

Thanks to the use of these dual-compressor systems, the system operation load is distributed more evenly, with a special controller regulating the operating sequence of outdoor units and individual compressors. This innovative technology also allows optimisation and balancing of the operating time for each component, considerably enhancing the reliability of the complete system. When the system is in operation, the latest Toshiba control systems select the heat exchanger and compressor to supply the required capacity in the most efficient way. This operating method continuously optimizes the power input compared with a traditional on/off system and can reduce it by up to 30%.

Unsurpassed air conditioning from Mitsubishi Electric

RLBS is proud to work with Mitsubishi Electric, who was founded in 1955 and quickly established itself at the forefront of the industry.  With 50 years experience in developing air conditioning systems, we continue to benefit from the sheer size and diversity of the Mitsubishi group.  With building insulation now at its best and electronic equipment galore in our living and working environments, the need for effective heating and cooling is paramount.  Our cost-effective, energy conscious systems are expertly designed to provide the consumer with constant, comfortable living and working environments.


Driven by latest technology

Mitsubishi Electric and RLBS strive to continually meet the increasing demands of our customers, being the first in the industry to offer highly advanced ‘inverter driven’ systems.  Using inverter technology our systems produce just the right amount of output to match the exact requirement of any building.  These systems work so efficiently that they don’t waste valuable energy by over-heating or over-cooling, resulting in greatly reduced running costs.  Alternative systems that may appear cheaper, can often cost substantially more to run, making us the most cost effective choice all round.


Protecting the environment

As scientific evidence points to man-made chemicals for the damage caused to the ozone layer, we only use chlorine-free refrigerants that are safe and have ‘zero ozone depletion potential’.  Accordingly, as our systems require less energy to run, they have significantly lower indirect global warming potential too.  In short, our constant investment and produce development enables us to provide the most efficient equipment possible, whilst protecting the environment at the same time.

RLBS installing throughout the Southwest Fujitsu air conditioning that can make a big difference to your environment: getting the best out of the working day and enjoying to the full your home environment. And Fujitsu offers more choice than ever with floor standing, wall, ceiling or window-mounted, ceiling cassette, or discreet ducted split air conditioning systems that neatly fit in a ceiling or wall void. Engineering is at its highest level of reliability, on-board computer technology has enhanced performance output, and Fujitsu General leads the way in finished product design.


In the workplace, air conditioning is no longer considered a luxury. Instead employers can see the real benefits of maintaining a comfortable working environment through increased production. Research has shown that as the office or factory temperature rises, so staff performance falls. And many more homeowners now consider air conditioning as important as their home heating system. Which, when you think about it, makes sense.


Split air conditioning systems are particularly beneficial as the condenser (housing the motor, etc) is installed outside the building, ensuring quiet operation inside. A remotely wired or hand-held controller provides flexible operation relating to time programmes, room temperatures and more. Add heat pump technology and your split air conditioner can now supply heating as well as cooling to the room, often providing an economical alternative to central heating systems.

Heat Pumps Systems – How They Work?
Heat pump systems are air conditioning systems that can be used both for cooling and heating. The principle of a heat pump system being more efficient is that they are able to reverse the process of transporting heat from one place to another.

Renewable Energy
Heat your building with energy absorbed from the air around you – air source heat pumps absorb heat from the outside air. This heat can then be used for fan coil units, air handling units, radiators, or warm air convectors and even hot water in your building.

Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER)
The EER is the ratio of the output of cooling or heating compared to the input of power. If an electric heater consumed 1 kW of energy and provided 1 kW of heat the EER would be 1 or is often referred to 100% efficient. As a heat pump system absorbs heat from a renewable source typically they have EER’s of approximately 3 – 4 or 300 – 400% efficient. This compares to an average boiler with an efficiency rating of 78% based on figures provide by the Energy Saving Trust.

Installing a Heat Pump System
Typically there is only a slight difference in the installation cost when installing a heat pump system compared to a cooling only air conditioning system.
We can assist and advise at the initial enquiry stage on the feasibility of installing a heat pump system. Being on the F-Gas register and accredited by Refcom we can supply, install, commissioning and maintain heat pump systems of leading heat pump manufacturers including Daikin, Mitsubishi, Toshiba, Sanyo, LG, Fujitsu and Hitachi.


RLBS can undertake air conditioning inspections for buildings.
Air conditioning inspections are designed to improve the efficiency of the system by:

• reducing electricity consumption.
• reducing operating costs.
• reducing carbon emissions.


The Energy Performance of Buildings Regulations 2007 requires all air conditioning systems with an effective output of more than 12 kW to be regularly inspected by a qualified energy assessor.
The inspections are valid for 5 years. In the event that there are any alterations or modifications made to the system then a new inspection may be required.

The Air Conditioning Assessment

The assessment would include the following:
• A full inspection of the plant.
• A compliance check i.e. F-Gas register on site, leak inspections etc.
• Any recommendations that may be required.

Great News For Business

There has never been a better time for businesses in Devon and Cornwall to invest in the latest air conditioning technology due to the Governments climate change programme. The Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) scheme allows South-West businesses claim the full cost of an RLBS air conditioning technology installation (equipment & installation) to be written off against taxable profits of the period in which the investment is made.
