Toshiba air-conditioning (Toshiba), through its joint venture with Carrier, announced the launch of the Tosh x Shiba campaign, aimed at promoting the Toshiba YouMe, Singapore’s first 5-tick low Global Warming Potential (GWP) Inverter Multi Split (IMS) air-conditioner (AC) in conjunction with World Environment Day on 5th June. Together with brand ambassador Tosh Zhang, Toshiba is leading the change to help Singapore move toward a more environmentally sustainable future.
Toshiba appoints Tosh Zhang as brand ambassador
Toshiba brought together Tosh Zhang and the universally loved Shiba Inu as brand ambassadors for the Toshiba YouMe. Tosh, best known for his roles in the smash-hit series Ah Boys to Men, and man’s best friend Shiba have come together to promote the Toshiba YouMe – Singapore’s first 5-tick low GWP Inverter Multi Split AC.
Toshiba will be launching a contest on Instagram (@toshibaacsea) for an opportunity to win a unique staycation at Sentosa in a Big Tiny house. The winner will get a chance to experience the YouMe first hand in a beautiful mobile house, designed to lessen the impact on the environment through less resource consumption.
Toshiba YouMe, the world’s best friend – reducing the impact on global warming
The Toshiba YouMe is inspired by the Japanese word ‘Yume’, which means dream. Dreams are often founded in reality and are more than merely slumbering illusions. Dreams are aspirations for people and their loved ones at work and home alike. Dreams are extensions of ambitions to live life to its fullest and to give future generations a world worth exploring.
The Toshiba YouMe works on sustainable technology to reduce the impact on global warming while delivering the lowest energy consumption for any 5-tick IMS in Singapore. Harnessing the energy of smart engineering, digital control technology and advanced chemistry, the YouMe is hyper-efficient. The R32 system releases up to 72% fewer CO2 emissions  compared to an equivalent R410A system, based on a study conducted on Toshiba IMS products.
About the Toshiba YouMe
Sleek design, cost-effective and quiet – ideal for all
The Toshiba YouMe is perfectly outfitted to complement modern flats and work spaces. The sleek design of the new YouMe seamlessly integrates into any space and its contemporary aesthetics add to endless interior design possibilities. The Toshiba YouMe features beautifully contoured lines, a high-gloss white finish and adjustable white LEDs to complement any modern interior.
Self-cleaning Fan Coil Unit – good for home, good for health at reasonable cost
With AC, residual moisture is a consistent challenge. It is a breeding ground for mould and can eventually lead to the emergence of pathogens and allergens that might cause respiratory issues and other health-related problems. The Toshiba YouMe comes with a self-cleaning function that helps reduce mould growth.
After the fan coil unit is switched off, the blower inside continues to run at low speed for up to 20 minutes to dry the coils and get rid of any built-up moisture. YouMe does the work for you between maintenance intervals so you can enjoy healthy air all year round. This not only saves money and ensures a good lifespan of the AC but also provides safety from respiratory allergies and other health hazards.
Other key features
Other key features include a Magic Coil – special aqua-coated aluminium fin heat exchanger – which helps keep dirt and debris from building up on coils, quiet and quick cooling and wireless control.
In addition, Toshiba YouMe is designed for complete serviceability with an easily removable front panel, drain pan and cross flow fan. With 82 mm of clearance, nearly 80% more than the previous generation, dust and dirt can’t hide in tight spaces and after servicing is complete, YouMe will be nearly as clean as new.
The Toshiba YouMe is available at all major retailers islandwide from 1 March 2019.
