This unit is a shorter version of the M7RL gas furnace, as it does not include an integrated coil cabinet. To install this model, HVAC contractors will add a separate coil box, also manufactured by Nortek Global HVAC, that can accept evaporator coils up to 25 inches tall.
Europe and Asia Pacific are also expected to see considerable market growth over the forecast period

A team of scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and the University of Florida (UF) has developed a novel method that could yield lower-cost, higher-efficiency systems for water heating in residential buildings.
Because it uses the earth as a free heat source or heat sink, geothermal is inherently a highly efficient technology that can help homeowners and building owners save a significant amount of energy and money. And, as advances in technology continue to improve the efficiency and controls of these units, the industry is concurrently investigating ways to make geothermal an affordable option for all.
While most studies insist IoT technologies are on the cusp of becoming mainstream, the question remains: Is the HVAC industry truly ready to embrace the IoT, or is there a sense of trepidation and concern regarding the technology’s staying power and long-term viability?
