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.
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.
Comprising a significant amount of total heat pump demand
March 29, 2017
Demand for air source heat pumps is forecast to increase 2.5 percent per year through 2021 to $2.1 billion. Air source heat pumps comprise a significant amount of total heat pump demand, largely due to the easier installation requirements and lower initial costs than geothermal heat pumps. Air source heat pumps also compete more directly with other HVAC equipment and are a viable heating and cooling option in most buildings.
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).
