Daikin Applied’s new SmartSource™ Compact vertical water source heat pump (WSHP) is designed to help facility managers and engineers who need to maximize building floor space and budgets. With a comprehensive selection of voltages, sizes, and special features (including hydronic heat and waterside economizer), the company says the SmartSource units give customers the flexibility to customize based on their job requirements for new construction or retrofit applications.

SmartSource units increase a building’s energy efficiency through an optional waterside economizer, allowing them to cool without electricity. Efficiency for the SmartSource product line is also augmented through an optional factory installed electronically commutated motor (ECM) with multiple field selectable airflow settings. The selectable settings aim to ensure a more comfortable environment for building occupants because it yields a wider range of airflow operations for different applications and duct systems. All SmartSource units are in compliance with ASHRAE 90.1 and other industry standards.

The new SmartSource Compact vertical water source heat pumps will be available for ordering January 5, 2015, with stock availability shipments beginning in March 2016.
