Packaged Unit: Johnson Controls
Johnson Controls introduced the Luxaire® Ovation™ Ultra High Efficiency Packaged Unit. The combination of the unit’s two-stage compressor, VFD, high-efficiency indoor/outdoor coil, and premium-efficiency indoor/outdoor motor, delivers up to 18.1 SEER and 14.35 EER.
Company officials said a common footprint allows for easy installation on a curb, slab, roof rack or frame. In addition, the unit is available in cooling and electric/gas heat configurations, features a slide-out blower and motor for servicing, and is ASHRAE 90.1 & 189.1 (2010) compliant with IntelliSpeed (2-speed) option and IntelliComfort II controls standard.
Each unit comes standard with variable frequency drives providing quiet start-up and two-speed indoor fan operation. Standard ECM outdoor motors and swept wing fan blades with a steeper pitch lower sound ratings to 75bB.
