Johnson Controls Introduces Industry-leading Luxaire® Ovation(TM) Ultra High Efficiency Unit
Press release date: March 14, 2014
MILWAUKEE – Johnson Controls, the global leader in building efficiency, recently introduced the Luxaire® Ovation™ Ultra High Efficiency Packaged Unit. The combination of the unit’s two-stage compressor, variable-frequency drive (VFD), high-efficiency indoor/outdoor coil and premium-efficiency indoor/outdoor motor delivers the highest AHRI-listed efficiencies in the industry – up to 18.1 SEER and 14.35 EER.
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 easy 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.
Additional key product features and benefits include:
Up to 2.0” ESP – standard belt drive offering allows for higher external static pressure, thus more airflow capability
Premium Efficiency Motors – inverter rated NEMA premium efficiency indoor motors and ECM outdoor motors
Flexible – ease of commissioning and adjustments in the field with VFD standard
LEED points – most EA Credit 1 points available
High-efficiency coils – sine wave evaporator and microchannel condenser coils
