New Coleman 16 SEER Heat Pump Adjusts Operating Capacity

16 SeerMILWAUKEE, Wis. — Advanced modulating technology in the new Coleman LX Series 16 SEER/9.0 HSPF heat pump from Johnson Controls can contribute to more even temperatures and lower operating costs. Proven in Coleman’s five-year accelerated test facility and more than 215,000 hours of research, the unit’s ability to adjust its operating capacity provides quiet, efficient operation as it adjusts heating and cooling levels up or down to provide only what is actually needed to condition the space. The units will be available for purchase this April.

Reducing compressor speed and decreasing airflow also allows the system to operate longer without drastically over-cooling the space, improving dehumidification. In colder weather, a demand defrost feature minimizes heat pump operation, removing frost on the outdoor coil far more effectively than time methods.

The 16 SEER Coleman LX Series heat pump also features:

  • Durable powder painted steel coil guards that provide protection against corrosion and coil damage
  • An engineered and balanced, direct-drive fan design that minimizes vibration and sound
  • Coils optimized for efficient airflow and effective refrigerant circulation providing optimal heat transfer

Contractors will appreciate easy access to commonly serviced items, a sturdy fan guard, smooth edges that allow for easier handling and a compact footprint for easy hand trucking and placement on site. The unit also features Coleman’s new fee-free, one-year labor limited warranty and is available in early 2016.
