Economic Reporter: The country’s electronics giant ‘Walton’ is going to release huge power efficient inverter technology 2-ton air-conditioners as well as 5-ton commercial or cassette type air-conditioners. These new versions air-conditioners will hit the local market very soon.
Walton officials said that ionizer, smart and huge power efficient inverter air-conditioners, manufactured at Walton Hi-Tech Industries Limited at Chandra in Gazipur, have been turned into the customers’ prime attraction.
Eva Rezwana, executive director and chief marketing coordinator of Walton, said, introduction of new models of air-conditioners were resulted in increasing the demands for Walton ACs this year.

Amdadul Haque Sarker, executive director and head of distributors marketing of Walton, said, the Walton brand AC with ionizer technology will ensure pure and healthy air across the room through filtering dusts, smoke, bacteria and odor from room air with a device named Ionizer.
Walton ACs with inverter technology’s compressor would consume 60 percent lesser electricity than the general technology’s ACs, he added.
In addition, he noted that Walton ‘Smart AC’ could monitor the power consumption units, daily or monthly electricity bill of it, compressors condition like overload or normal, power connection situation like on or off, and high or low voltage supply to it, in his/her mobile phone from any corner of the world.
Engineer Md. Ishaque Rony, chief operating officer of Walton AC, said, Walton is manufacturing and marketing world-class air-conditioners with perfect BTU (British Thermal Unit). They added the world’s latest technologies and features to Walton ACs like IoT based Smart AC, Inverter and Ionizer technologies ACs.

The compressors with inverter technology never switches off even when the temperature stabilizes, but runs at a slower speed maintaining the temperature inside the room, he said adding, thus these compressors consume comparatively low electricity. And, life time of the intelligent inverter technology’s compressors is also very high.
