Johnson Controls Co.: Split-System Heat Pumps
December 17, 2007
The new Echelon™ split-system heat pumps provide ratings of up to 10 HSPF and 18 SEER. Available in 2 through 5 tons, the units come in four models, each measuring 39.5 (high) by 34 (wide) by 42 inches (deep). Like existing Echelon heat pumps, the new units use R-410A refrigerant. In the WhisperDrive™ system, the swept-wing fan, composite base pan, isolated compressor compartment, and two-stage compressors work together to reduce overall sound to a whisper - as low as 71 dBA in cooling mode and 72 dBA in heating mode. A slide-down control compartment allows easy access to control components. The two- and three-ton models qualify for federal tax credits when they’re properly matched with a variable-speed Echelon furnace or air handler.
