These units include a factory-installed, run-tested Staged Air Volume (SAVTM) system that automatically adjusts the indoor motor fan speed to match the cooling stages. The system helps improve comfort while increasing efficiency on certain units by nearly 10 percent.
“The integration of our proven and effective SAV system into the models that require higher efficiencies to meet the new Department of Energy requirements will be a welcomed and seamless enhancement for our customers,” said Chris Opie, director, North America Commercial Marketing. “Carrier recognizes the value of investing in technologies that deliver greater efficiency to our customers and are pleased this latest innovation will help further drive down energy costs for many of our climate control systems.”
The system will be available in the following rooftop units and air handlers: WeatherMaker® and select WeatherMaster® Series, 48/50TC, 50TCQ, 48/50HC, 48/50A-40, 50, 60 ton, 48/50P 30-70 ton and Gemini® 40RU Air Handlers.
