WaterFurnace Intl. Inc. recently brought its Home Comfort Tour to Columbus, Ohio, to unveil two new products: a 5 Series hydronic geothermal heat pump that features vapor injection technology and the Symphony Home Comfort System.
Offering efficiencies up to 16.1 EER and 3.3 COP, the 5 Series 504W11 hydronic geothermal heat pump is ideal for high-temperature applications, such as baseboard radiator systems, underfloor radiant applications, overfloor radiant applications, and fan coils.
Provides Detailed System Information and Control Over the Entire Geothermal System
April 17, 2015
WaterFurnace International Inc. has introduced Symphony, a web-enabled home comfort platform designed for its 3 Series, 5 Series, and 7 Series geothermal heat pump systems. It provides detailed feedback in real-time and the tools to control the system from any smartphone, tablet, or computer.
The Westinghouse EarthDirEX™ 19+ EER, 3.9+ COP geothermal direct geoexchange heat pump is said to require less drilling than other geothermal systems. Also, there is no earth-to-water heat exchanger component, so the heat pump transfers heat more efficiently.
Groups Collaborating to Amend Illinois Technical Reference Manual
September 22, 2014
The group’s amendment would allow GHPs to be compared to 80 percent efficient natural gas furnaces; include the desuperheater water heating efficiencies of GHPs; recognize the true cost of air-source heat pumps; raise the average by 54 percent; and extend the useful life of a GHP from 18 to 25 years.
