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.
