The two companies worked closely together on the design of the systems. Nordyne’s air conditioner is rated at 16 SEER and the heat pump is rated at 15-plus SEER. Both units use R-410A. To achieve these SEER ratings, each system uses the new Copeland Scroll™ UltraTech compressor, Emerson’s next-generation two-stage scroll compressor.
The ultra-high-efficiency systems made by Nordyne also include Emerson’s Comfort Alert™ diagnostics module to help analyze electrical problems and system-related faults. In addition, Nordyne recommends that its dealers carry White-Rodgers Comfort-Set® digital thermostats, another Emerson product. Comfort Alert has been designed to work with the Comfort-Set digital thermostat. To complete the system, Nordyne also selected refrigerant flow and filter-drier devices made by Emerson Climate Technologies’ Flow Controls division.
