WaterFurnace introduces Envision2 Compact geothermal heat pump
WaterFurnace International, Inc., a leading manufacturer of geothermal and water source heat pumps, introduces its Envision2 Compact Series. The newest addition to the commercial product family offers best-in-class efficiencies and features in a cabinet that is among the industry’s smallest. This makes the unit ideal for boiler/tower applications and the replacement of aging water source heat pumps.
Available in 0.75- to 6-ton capacities, the Envision2 Compact design incorporates a number of advanced features, including the Aurora generation of communicating controls. Options include a factory-installed 24V motorized on/off water valve for variable-frequency-drive (VFD) pumping with automatic internal water flow control; hot gas bypass and reheat; and high-efficiency PSC, 5-Speed ECM, or variable speed ECM motors to meet efficiency and comfort needs.
All Envision2 Compact units use environmentally friendly R410A refrigeration and are more than twice as efficient as ASHRAE 90.1 efficiency standards. Single-speed models operate with a Copeland 5-K Scroll™ or LG rotary compressor, while dual-capacity units use a Copeland UltraTech™ compressor. All Envision2 Compact heat pumps feature coaxial heat exchangers that are oversized and convoluted with a copper inner tube and steel outer tube for maximum heat transfer at normal and low water flow rates, minimizing pressure drop.
The heat pump’s compact cabinet is constructed of heavy-gauge environmentally responsible galvanized steel for maximum corrosion resistance. Interior surfaces are lined with ½-inch-thick, foil-lined acoustic fiber insulation, applied in a manner that prevents the introduction of glass fibers into the air stream.
