Trane, a brand of Ingersoll Rand, introduces Airfinity XL, the newest, larger design in its Airfinity series of packaged heating, ventilating and air-conditioning (HVAC) rooftop units now available in Europe. The new unit exceeds the 2018 minimum seasonal efficiency requirements set out by the Energy-related Products (ErP) Directive 2016/2281, reflecting the company’s commitment to providing customers with sustainable solutions.
The Airfinity rooftop is a portfolio of light, compact and modular plug-and-play HVAC units ideal for retail and warehouse applications. The portfolio was designed to save installers’ time and reduce first and ongoing maintenance costs by improving efficiency of existingcommercial buildings that require customizable solutions to meet their unique needs.
Airfinity XL packaged rooftop units are highly configurable and can be easily adapted to any application in medium to large buildings, with increased capacities from 120-220 kilowatts (kW) and 42,000 cubic meters of nominal airflow. When bundled with the Trane Energy Recovery Module capacities can go as high as 290kW.The new models are easy toinstall and even easier to operate, requiring little maintenance.
