NEW YORK — The 10 category winners of the 2014 AHR Expo Innovation Awards came together to see which product would be selected as the overall winner of the 2014 AHR Expo Product of the Year Award and Emerson Climate Technologies emerged as this year’s winner.

Previously announced as the winner in the Cooling category for its Next Generation Copeland Scroll variable speed compressor product line, Emerson grabbed the top prize as well in a presentation that took place at the AHR Expo in New York City.

The Next Generation Copeland Scroll offers breakthrough efficiency, enhanced comfort, and proven reliability in residential and commercial HVAC applications, says Emerson. In residential systems, the variable-speed compressor technology can help systems achieve cooling efficiency of 25-plus SEER and heating efficiency of 13-plus HSPF. The commercial line offers a speed range of 1,500 to 7,000 rpm, which the company says is optimal for light load efficiency and dehumidification.
