Carrier® High Efficiency Heat Pump with Greenspeed™ Intelligence Named One of the “Hot 50 Products” by GreenBuilder Magazine
Indianapolis, Indiana, May 17, 2012 – The Carrier® Infinity® 20 heat pump with Greenspeed™ intelligence was recently voted one of “The Hot 50 Products of 2012” by GreenBuildermagazine, a leading North American residential building industry publication. The GreenBuilder panel of judges selected the Carrier heat pump product based on its overall impact, innovation and reliability. Carrier, the world’s leader in high technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
Introduced in 2011, the Infinity heat pump with Greenspeed intelligence has an HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor) efficiency rating up to 13, making it the highest heating efficiency ducted, air source heat pump on the market. The Infinity heat pump delivers up to 69 percent higher heating efficiency in the three-ton size.
“Carrier is proud that the Infinity 20 heat pump with Greenspeed intelligence has been named one of ‘The Hot 50 Products of 2012’ byGreenBuilder magazine” said Matt Nuijens, Carrier brand manager. “As a company committed to sustainability, Carrier continually improves on the performance and efficiency of its products. It is a tremendous honor to have this new heat pump included as one of the 50 building products that raise the bar a little higher in the industry.”
The Infinity 20 heat pump with Greenspeed intelligence was one of four HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) products to receive the “Hot 50 Products of 2012” designation from GreenBuilder magazine.
“One of the many innovative features of the Infinity 20 heat pump is its ability to provide warmer air at the register when outdoor temperatures fall into the teens,” said Rob Lambert, Carrier product manager and application engineer. “Under similar conditions, standard heat pumps may deliver cooler air at the register when outdoor temperatures decline. The Infinity 20 heat pump is one of the highest efficiency air source heat pumps built with consumer comfort in mind.”
When installed as part of a complete Infinity system, the new heat pump adjusts its output within a range of 40 to 100 percent of capacity to match the heating or cooling requirements of a home. This innovation is made possible by pairing the superior communication ability of Carrier Greenspeed intelligence with a Copeland Scroll® variable -speed compressor from Emerson Climate Technologies, optimized specifically for this heat pump.
With cooling efficiencies of up to 20.5 SEER and variable-speed compressor technology, this new heat pump is also ideal for superior cooling and humidification in regions with warmer temperatures and high humidity.
