Advanced modulating technology in the new Coleman® LX Series 16 SEER/9.0 HSPF heat pump from Johnson Controls Inc. contributes to more even temperatures and lower operating costs. Proven in Coleman’s five-year accelerated test facility and 215,000 hours of research, the unit can adjust its operating capacity to provide quiet, efficient operation as it adjusts heating and cooling levels up or down to provide only what is needed to condition the space.
Reducing compressor speed and decreasing airflow also allows the system to operate longer without drastically overcooling the space, thereby improving dehumidification. In colder weather, a demand-defrost feature minimizes heat pump operation by removing frost on the outdoor coil far more effectively than timed methods.
The 16-SEER Coleman LX Series heat pump also features:
- Durable powder-painted steel coil guards that provide protection against corrosion and coil damage;
- An engineered and balanced, direct-drive fan design that minimizes vibration and sound; and
- Coils optimized for efficient airflow and effective refrigerant circulation providing optimal heat transfer.
Contractors will appreciate easy access to commonly serviced items, a sturdy fan guard, smooth edges that allow for easier handling and a compact footprint for easy hand trucking and placement on-site. The unit also features Coleman’s new fee-free, one-year labor limited warranty.
