Energy Star Honors WaterFurnace

November 5, 2012
FORT WAYNE, Ind. — WaterFurnace International Inc.’s 7 Series variable-capacity unit has achieved the Energy Star Most Efficient 2012 designation. The 7 Series joins WaterFurnace’s 5 Series, Synergy3D® Series, and Envision Series as recipients of the award in 2012.

“We’re particularly proud that our flagship 7 Series, the first variable-capacity geothermal unit available to homeowners, was recognized with the most efficient designation,” said Tim Litton, director of marketing, WaterFurnace. “We believe that receiving this honor for yet another product reflects that the WaterFurnace brand represents best-in-class innovation and energy efficiency.”

The 7 Series 700A11, released earlier this year, utilizes WaterFurnace’s InfiniSpeed technology, a soft-start variable-capacity compressor, in concert with a variable-speed ECM blower and variable-speed loop pump. This allows the unit to scale output to exactly the level needed rather than the “high” or “low” speeds found in normal systems.

The 7 Series also utilizes Aurora, WaterFurnace’s next-generation of logic boards, to continuously monitor and optimize operation. Aurora provides a platform of two-way communication between components, robust troubleshooting capabilities, and advanced communication protocols. This includes integration with IntelliZone2, a zoning package capable of controlling a variable-capacity compressor, and with Symphony Home Energy Management, which provides device control and detailed real-time energy monitoring from any Internet-enabled device.
