Cooper&Hunter, a global provider of mini-split systems, has started the new year with the goal of helping to move the HVAC industry forward. In collaboration with Tropic Supply, Cooper&Hunter has gifted Daytona State College with six complete HVAC systems, considering the donation as a useful investment in the next generation. The on-campus working stations, which include units from Cooper&Hunter’s modern Sophia Mini-Split Single Zone Series, will give students hands-on learning opportunities with technology that is becoming increasingly popular in the United States.
“At Cooper&Hunter, we feel that supporting development in the HVAC industry is not only our duty, but also our pleasure," said Cooper&Hunter CEO Marat Terchiyev. "Making donations to educational programs is beneficial for everyone involved. Both instructors and students get hands-on access to modern tools, ensuring that HVAC newcomers enter the workforce with practical knowledge, confidence, and experience.”
As U.S. consumers are becoming more eco-conscious, the mini-split market is growing. In comparison to more traditional central HVAC systems, these ductless units are easy to install, affordable, and energy efficient. Saving money and energy simultaneously is an advantage that American consumers cannot ignore. Therefore, HVAC professionals will need to be prepared.
“Tropic Supply has a long history of supporting the contractor community," said Heather Anusbigian, marketing director of Tropic Supply. "It is our honor and privilege to offer training and support to the future of our industry. We sincerely appreciate our partnership with Cooper and Hunter which made this donation possible.”
Daytona State College has already expressed great appreciation.
“We do appreciate the hard work that you and your service technician put in today," said Robbie Phillips, HVAC instructor at the School of Workforce Careers and Advanced Technology College. "You have left us with very professional looking mini split systems that will assist us with training for years to come. Looking forward to working with you in the future."
