The NW Ductless Heat Pump Project, an initiative of the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA) in collaboration with local utilities, named its 2011/2012 Contractors of the Year for the states of Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.
Designed for any room without ductwork, such as in hotels and classrooms, the Envision™ Series Low Sill Console geothermal/water-source heat pump has large face, rifled copper tubes, and enhanced corrugated lanced aluminum fins, which provide high efficiencies at low face velocities.
The Emerson Blue™ Wireless Easy Install™ thermostat system is ideal for residential applications where pulling any wire would be difficult or cost prohibitive, said the company. The thermostat system is compatible with most conventional and heat pump systems that are single- or multi-stage.
The Geothermal Exchange Organization (GEO) presented four of its 2011 Geothermal Heat Pump Industry Champion Awards to key legislators in Washington, D.C. Recipients included Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.), Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.), and Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-N.J.).
A new Halcyon split-system heat pump line has equipment that achieves up to 27.2 SEER. The RLS2 line of heat pumps offers 9-, 12-, and 15,000-Btu models with a newly designed chassis and the ESP energy saving program. The 9RLS2 offers an HSPF of 12.5, a SEER of 27.2, and an EER of 16.1.
