NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Emerson announced at the ACCA IE3 show that its next-generation Copeland Scroll two-stage compressor will be offered in Goodman Mfg. Co.’s new 16-18 SEER systems.

According to the company, the new Goodman 16-18 SEER systems featuring the two-stage compressor will allow homeowners to obtain comfort and efficiency at an accessible price. Two-stage systems run at full capacity or 65 percent and modulate mechanically by bypassing a portion of the gas in the scroll back to suction.

“We think dealers and homeowners will like the enhanced comfort these two-stage systems deliver over fixed capacity systems at a refreshingly affordable price too,” said Lawrence Blackburn, executive vice president and president, Goodman Business Unit.

The two companies were quick to point out that the product will be made and assembled in the U.S.

“As SEER ratings continue to push our industry to higher efficiency standards, homeowner expectations toward comfort are also rising. We are happy to be joining with Goodman to bring this affordable and efficient offering to the market,” said Brandy Powell, vice president and general manager, residential air conditioning, commercial and residential solutions platform, Emerson. “Goodman’s selection of our new Copeland Scroll two-stage compressors is a great testimony to the reliability, efficiency, and affordability of this modulation technology.”

The products are already coming off assembly lines and expect to be in the field within 60 days.
