Geothermal heat pumps
ClimateMaster announces its efficiency breakthrough in the new Trilogy 40 series, which is the first series of geothermal heat pumps certified by AHRI to exceed 40 EER at ground-loop conditions. The Trilogy 40 utilizes variable-speed technology to provide an extremely wide range of heating and cooling capacities with the ability to perfectly match loads to as low as 30% of maximum. In addition, patent-pending Q-Mode technology produces year-round domestic hot water on demand, even when space conditioning is not required.
The Trilogy 40 Q-Mode series is the outcome of a five-year collaboration between ClimateMaster and Oak Ridge National Laboratory, which was sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy Building Technologies Program. In addition to efficiency, the Trilogy 40 Q-Mode delivers comfort and humidity control by precisely matching its capacity to the heating and cooling load. The Trilogy 40 Q-Mode series is currently in limited production with full availability scheduled for late this year.
