Seeley International’s market-leading 7 star equivalent* Braemar ducted gas heater has emerged victorious in the Product/Service Excellence category at this year’s ARBS Industry Awards, announced at a gala ceremony at the Crown Palladium in Melbourne overnight.
In accepting the prestigious accolade, Seeley International Founder and Executive Chairman, Mr Frank Seeley AM, said it was rewarding to see such an innovative and market-leading product formally recognised with the highest honour in the HVAC&R Industry.
“There were plenty of industry sceptics that claimed it couldn’t be done, but Seeley International has made manufacturing history by developing the world’s first 7 star super energy-efficient ducted gas heater – our revolutionary Braemar 7 star equivalent* ducted gas heater,” Mr Seeley said.
“This is the most energy efficient and economical conventional ducted gas heater on the market, and its 7 star equivalent efficiency raises the bar even further by offering a level of energy performance that is redefining the ratings system currently in use across Australia,” he said.
“Innovation and energy efficiency are two of Seeley International’s core values, and with our commitment to ongoing investment in inspirational product development, we are able to deliver heating and cooling solutions that are “out of this world, but don’t cost the Earth.””
It is the latest award win for the revolutionary product, having previously been announced as an ABA 100 winner for ‘Best New Product’ in The Australian Business Awards in 2015, as well as winning the ‘Product Design: Hardware and Building’ category in the 2015 Good Design Australia awards.
“The Braemar 7 star equivalent ducted gas heater is a game-changer, and receiving this independent recognition, pays tribute to the hard work of the entire Seeley International team, and reflects our unwavering commitment to ever-continuing research, development and innovation,” Mr Seeley said.
“Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of their environmental impact, and are keen to make meaningful reductions to their energy use, and by investing in this super energy-efficient Braemar heater they can be confident in the knowledge that it will heat their entire home, and achieve outstanding energy savings,” he said.
