Whisper-quiet units deliver maximum airflow required for proper air circulation.
Minneapolis, MN - October 15, 2009 -- New McQuay® Enfinity(TM) console water source heat pumps, designed for in-room installation, exceed ASHRAE 90.1 efficiency standard* by up to 35 percent to reduce energy consumption and operating costs. Units can qualify for state or federal rebates and earn points to help achieve LEED® certification. Selectable for standard, boiler/tower or geothermal applications, McQuay® Enfinity(TM) console water source heat pumps use R-410A refrigerant, which has zero ozone-depletion potential and no phase-out date.
The Enfinity console's high-sill or low-sill design makes it easy to meet the space requirements of new-construction and replacement applications
The console unit's GentleFlo(TM) cross-tangential fan wheel delivers maximum airflow required for proper air circulation along with whisper-quiet operation.
Available in a range of colors, the attractive flat- or sloped-top cabinet has one front and two side panels to allow easy access to water connections, components and controls, helping to reduce installed and maintenance costs.
"The Enfinity console's high-sill or low-sill design makes it easy to meet the space requirements of new-construction and replacement applications," said Mike Paquette, product manager for water source heat pumps at McQuay. "The console unit's GentleFlo(TM) cross-tangential fan wheel delivers maximum airflow required for proper air circulation along with whisper-quiet operation."
McQuay® Enfinity(TM) console water source heat pumps are equipped with a MicroTech® III unit controller with the Open Choices(TM) feature to allow stand-alone thermostat operation for easy, low-cost integration with any building automation system using LONWORKS® (LONMARK® 3.4 certified) or BACnet® communications. A variety of factory-installed piping and valve packages can be selected to further simplify field installation and reduce labor costs. Units are equipped with a removable, non-corrosive polymer drain pan that promotes positive condensate drainage for superior indoor air quality (IAQ). Optional closed-cell insulation is available for sensitive applications to prevent insulation fibers from entering the supply air stream.
