Carrier’s WeatherExpert™ Series now includes six new models from 75- to 150-tons, for a total model line-up ranging from 3- to 150-ton units. The WeatherExpert line boasts Integrated Energy Efficiency Ratio ratings up to 21.0 that exceed the Consortium of Energy Efficiency tier II criteria, which many utilities use for rebates. They also meet or exceed all current ASHRAE 90.1-2010 and Energy Star® energy requirements, with some models exceeding standards by more than 84%. Similar to other models in the Carrier Weather Series line, the WeatherExpert 75- to 150-ton units were designed to maintain product familiarity by taking advantage of common parts from existing Carrier rooftop designs. With six sizes between 75 and 150 tons, customers are able to configure the equipment to be specifically tailored to their exact application. The new WeatherExpert 75- to 150-ton models feature a double- wall foam panel cabinet design with hinged “man-sized” access panels. Customers can select between the standard airfoil supply fan or the optional high static airfoil supply fan as a solution to the static pressure necessary for complex building applications and highly featured units. Units are also available in dedicated vertical, horizontal and mixed supply/return airflow configurations for constant volume, staged air volume or variable air volume applications.
