Air-conditioning systems experts CAC 2000 Limited (CAC), formerly known as Conditioned Air Corporation, have signalled their intention to list on the Jamaica Stock Exchange.

The company has more than 82 years of specialising in applied air-conditioning systems (including chillers, cooling towers, pumps, and air-handling units) and continues to be at the leading edge of cooling systems design and installation for industrial, commercial, and residential purposes.

CAC recently used its strategic partnership with global giant LG to equip its engineering and service teams with the most state-of-the-art training in the country, by hosting a one-day seminar at the Terra Nova All-Suite Hotel. The seminar was aimed specifically at getting technicians up to speed with the latest generation variable refrigerant flow (VRF) systems.

"Our technical and engineering expertise and experience are what set CAC apart from the competition," said CEO Steven Marston. "CAC's reputation as the leader in engineering and technical services in the air-conditioning industry is based on the expertise and experience of our in-house engineers and our Carrier-certified technicians and is backed by the technical support staff and expertise of Carrier, Broad, LG, and Fujitsu." Eliseo Jaen Gonzalez, who represented LG Panama, explained the key feature of these systems.

"LG VRF systems are engineered to minimise or use no ductwork. This saves on the cost of large-distribution fans, multiple water pumps, and water piping." Marston added, "A lot of companies are using chiller systems which require them to truck in water during droughts. With Jamaica's continuing drought problem, these LG VRF systems could alleviate a large burden from the country by reducing corporate water consumption."

Companies including Creative Building Finishes, Jamaica Flour Mills, PricewaterhouseCoopers, KPMG, BNS, First Global Bank are currently using VRF systems, which feature a revolutionary LG A/C Smart control system, allowing for remote operation of all aspects of the air-conditioning system. LG A/C Smart can also be connected to a network to allow full control via the Internet, even via smartphone.

"Companies that adopt LG VRF systems from CAC could experience annual savings in excess of $1 million. This in addition to the environmental benefits for the country," Marston said.
