The XR16 is a low-profile side-discharge air conditioning unit for split ducted systems. The unit is available in 1.5- to 5-ton sizes. It is designed for challenging applications, including zero lot-line situations, multifamily housing, and condominium units and row houses.
The XCPC is a solution for solar air conditioning and industrial process heat. XCPC technology pairs a custom evacuated tube receiver with an external non-imaging reflector, which enables the collector to cost-effectively achieve temperatures of 392°F at more than 50 percent efficiency without tracking.
In this month’s troubleshooting situation, you are dealing with a 4-ton split system, and the locale is a desert Southwest city. The customer in this case is the landlord, and they are working on the residence, getting it ready to rent after the departure of a long-term tenant. Their description of the problem is that the house “just won’t get comfortable.”
The Luxaire Acclimate Variable Capacity Residential Systems from Johnson Controls Inc. are high-efficiency residential systems with built-in advanced charge monitoring. This quick and accurate means of measuring refrigerant charge saves contractors time.

As the movement to legalize marijuana continues to take hold across the country, growers are beginning to seek out equipment that will help them maximize production. Until recently, there were no cooling and drying products specifically designed to optimize growing conditions for this agricultural product. Now, new technology is being engineered that can produce the right temperature and humidity conditions to maximize productivity and minimize mold and insect problems.
These high-efficiency systems feature inverter-driven variable capacity technology, which dynamically adjusts capacity and airflow, unlike systems that simply turn on or off. Air circulates more precisely and quietly, maximizing comfort while reducing energy consumption.
While many educational sessions were presented at the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration (AHR) Expo, perhaps the most popular was the course on global HVAC trends offered by the Building Services Research and Information Association (BSRIA).
