Kirby releases Guardian Ready Connect Evaporators

Kirby Guardian Ready Connect represents the next release in the Kirby Guardian family of evaporators, standing alongside Guardian and Guardian Ultra.

Kirby Guardian Ready Connect evaporators are factory fitted with Carel’s EVD ice control solution for ExV proportional electronic expansion valves directly on the evaporator, with a revolutionary design intended specifically for low temperature conditions.

The range delivers considerable benefits for contractors and asset owners alike in delivering a more efficient refrigeration system with reduced energy consumption.

Other features include, simple and fast installation and commissioning, improved pull-down times, precise refrigerant flow, enhanced durability rated to IP65 and operating conditions between -30°C to 40°C.

Carel EVD ice is also designed to be compatible with third party regulation and control solutions, using standard communication protocols, or can work as a standalone solution for refrigeration cells and other applications in which compactness and versatility are key.

Kirby Guardian Ready Connect delivers all the performance benefits available without the need for cabling, welding or complex configuration. The range also offers the quality and reliability of a factory tested and installed solution, backed by the combined knowledge and strength of both Kirby and Carel.

ARBS you ready for better air - Virtual ARBS Issue2

Coming soon is the new Lennox standard of excellence. The Merit Series raises the bar for heating and cooling equipment. When it comes to efficient air inside the home – deliver more, deliver Merit.

Efficiency, Efficiency, Efficiency

131526 furnace LR

At every turn the Lennox ML296 gas furnace is designed to be the most energy-efficiency furnace in its class. And with an energy rating of 96% AFUE*, the ML296 delivers by using two thirds less energy than competitive single speed units.

Variable-speed fan
Two-stage heating
Sealed blower compartment
Silicon nitride Surelight® ignitor
Robust blower assembly

*AFUE, or Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency, is a measure of how much usable heat is generated when natural gas is burned in the unit. The higher the AFUE, the more heat you’ll get from your natural gas, and the less gas you’ll have to use to stay warm.

Stay tuned for announcements on availability and speak to your Kirby representative if you would like further details.

Amazing Filtration


Promising cleaner, fresher air while reducing energy use*, the Lennox® Healthy Climate® filters deliver superior whole home filtration.

The Carbon Clean 16’s MERV 16** Precision Pleat™ media filter protects from more than 95% of allergy-aggravating particles ranging in size down to 0.3 microns.

Carbon Clean 16 is available soon and compatible with both Lennox ML296 and ML180 furnaces.

*Based on in-duct testing that shows Healthy Climate® filters reduce air flow restriction. Greater restriction of air flow creates a greater load on a unit’s fan motor, increasing energy consumption.
** The MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rating of a filter describes the size of the holes in the filter that allow air to pass through. The higher the MERV rating (categories range from 1 to 16), the smaller the holes in the filter, and the better the filtration.

Coronavirus information and support for business EOFY Stimulus

as at 31 March 2020

Kirby has summarised the information that is relevant for HVACR contractors and your customers with respect to the economic stimulus provided by the government through the COVID-19 situation.

Importantly, equipment owners that are considering investment in an asset could be entitled to the increased instant asset write-off provision or the backing business investment incentive.

These schemes provide the asset owners the opportunity to get an early financial benefit when upgrading assets for use in their business. Tools for trade and refrigeration / air-conditioning are great examples where this could apply to you or your customers.
