New Coleman LX Series Packaged Units from Johnson Controls Raise Performance and Reliability Standards

Rigorous quality and field testing contribute to higher efficiency, weather and corrosion resistance, and contractor-friendly design

MILWAUKEE — New Coleman LX Series packaged units from Johnson Controls employ advanced product engineering and manufacturing processes, along with rigorous quality and field testing, to ensure simplified installation, setup and servicing, and efficient, dependable performance. The units are 29 percent more efficient, with a 14 Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating that exceeds U.S. Department of Energy efficiency standards.

“We invested more than 65,000 hours in customer research and product design and testing. The result is a product optimized for efficiency, serviceability and customer satisfaction,” said Liz Haggerty, vice president and general manager, Johnson Controls Unitary Products Group.

Learn more about the research and advanced manufacturing process that went into the Coleman LX Series packaged unit:

The unit’s cabinet design improves installation and serviceability with a compact size, which fits most roof frames and slabs, and exact-match gas and electric hookups. Front and top access to the compressor, refrigeration controls and blower enhances serviceability, as does top access to the condenser fan and motor, and side access to the compressor, coil, heat exchanger and filters. Additionally, a standardized design ensures performance, simplifies repairs and reduces the number of replacement parts contractors must carry in inventory and on service trucks.

Coleman LX Series packaged units additionally feature:

Optimized heating and cooling solution for residential and light commercial buildings

Single-cabinet design versus previous three-cabinet model

Tested copper tube/aluminum fin condenser coils that combine an outstanding heat transfer rate with long-term reliability and corrosion resistance

Slide-out evaporator coil for easier cleaning

Easier setup and operation with simplified control technology, including LED status lights

Tubular stainless steel gas heat exchanger with a lifetime limited warranty as standard

Stronger, easily removable base rails (use just two screws per corner) that improve installation

Single-stage compressor and single-stage gas heat

“One of the most significant things we’ve done is commission a Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT) chamber,” said Darren Warnecker, lead reliability engineer at Johnson Controls. “It allows us to create conditions and verify component performance during weather events, humidity levels, under/over voltage and temperatures down to -10 degrees Fahrenheit.”

In addition, the cabinet’s 1,000-hour salt spray rating ensures an exterior finish with a superior appearance and outstanding corrosion protection.

The 2- to 5-ton capacity Coleman LX Series packaged units are currently available in cooling with gas heat configuration. Additional configurations, including cooling with electric heat, heat pumps with electric heat and heat pumps with gas heat, will be phased in over 2015.
