Johnson Controls: Dual-Fuel Heat Pump
November 5, 2012
The Luxaire® brand Acclimate™ packaged 2- to 5-ton dual-fuel heat pump features low nitrogen oxide (NOx) for reduced carbon emissions, R-410A refrigerant, standard louvered condenser coil protection, and easy power and control wiring connections for reduced installation time and costs. Available in 2-, 2.5-, 3-, 3.5-, 4-, and 5-tonnage models, the heat pumps are equipped with a two-step Copeland® UltraTech 2.0™ compressor, which handles both two-stage cooling and heat pump operations. When combined with a two-stage gas heating module, the heat pump efficiently keeps interiors comfortably warm when outdoor temperatures dip below freezing. The heat pump achieves efficiencies up to 14 SEER, 11.8 EER, and 8 HPSF, delivering energy savings and comfort that exceed conventional packaged heat pumps or standard gas units, claimed the company.
