Johnson Controls: Mini-Split A/C Units, Heat Pumps

February 24, 2014

Johnson Controls: Mini-Split A/C Units,Heat PumpsMini-split air conditioners and heat pumps have been added to the Luxaire Acclimate™ and LX Series. The unit delivers heating and cooling to structures without ductwork, and can be used in homes, room additions, commercial applications, and computer server rooms where temperatures must be maintained even in winter, when other parts of the building are not being cooled. Single-zone mini-splits provide individualized comfort in a single room, while multizone models connect a single outdoor unit to as many as five indoor units, providing comfort in larger areas. In addition, occupants can set temperature and humidity levels for each unit in each room, saving energy and ensuring comfort. Most models in the Acclimate Series are Energy Star®-certified with SEER ratings ranging from 16-27 and HSPF ratings as high as 10 to ensure energy-efficient performance and comfort. The mini-splits’ cold-blow prevention feature ensures comfort by slightly delaying the indoor fan at the start of a cycle to make sure the air comes out warm. The mini-split system is quiet, too, thanks to variable-speed fans. It has the ability to work in outdoor temperatures ranging as low as 5°F without resorting to electric backup heating. An advanced multipart filter system accessory uses a catechin material and treated fibers to remove contaminants, such as allergens, to improve IAQ. A wireless remote controller with a built-in temperature sensor controls and satisfies cooling or heating set point temperatures wherever the remote control is located. It offers the option to install the water drainage outlet on either the right or left side of the indoor unit.
